Having some quick, go-to strategies that students can adopt to structure their visualized data into infographics and other forms can really raise the intentionality and outcome of student work. We recommend this video that introduces graphic designer Richard Saul Wurman’s five methods of organizing information visually. It can help inspire and focus students when they are stumped about how to design visualizations — take a look!
Do you ever wonder when to use a line graph, bar chart, or pie chart? Or how your data might look different depending on which kind of tool you use? Then you might be interested in data presentation, the process of deciding which tool to use and what elements to employ.
We are delighted to share the webinar below, hosted by Tierney Steelberg, with you. She’ll lead you through the kinds of questions you can ask yourself so you and your students can make charts, graphs, and tables that communicate more clearly and completely.
