Five Data Visualization Tools Focused on Design | Visually Blog | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
The last few years have brought data visualization deeply into the world of design. It used to take highly technical designers or a team of developers and designers to create data visualizations that were both accurate and beautiful.

Here are five of those tools, what they do, and how you should use them: Datavisual Out of all of these tools, Datavisual is tailored most directly at solving the problems of information designers. It just left private beta and is open to the public now.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 29, 4:02 PM

Students love creating and sharing. Not all students fall into that category. When given a choice, most students chose the hands-on projects, but occasionally some chose tests and quizzes. The latter were the anomalies, but they are out there.
