The Third Data Literacy Workshop will take place within ACM´s The Web Conference 2022 
Data is one of the most valuable resources in our digital economy. However, it is still not clear that we, as citizens, workers and learners, are equipped with the necessary competences to handle such a valuable asset. Data Literacy has become a critical aspect of the transformation of our society, our economy, and the web. In this workshop, we will address this topic with invited speakers and presentations from the selected papers’ authors.
