The UK Data Service page provides a new and engaging way for teachers to show their students how research using data in our collection is being featured in the news.

This online content curation tool enables users to quickly identify news sources that refer to research findings using data in our collection. Using current affairs in teaching can help students better understand how research findings are being used to improve lives and build a better future.

Finding the data behind the headlines

The vast amount of information available on the internet can be daunting and it can take a considerable amount of time to sift through sources to identify those that are relevant. We have curated this page to provide teachers and their students with a regularly-updated source of relevant information that can be easily tailored to meet their specific subject interests.

Our page highlights quality sources of information and presents these in a handy visual magazine-like format that will grab the attention of students. We also make it easier to filter content to specific areas of interest. Every article has been tagged with the name of the dataset, enabling teachers and students to draw out articles relevant to their studies. Users can also conduct a more general search by keyword.
