"Novelist Kurt Vonnegut’s rejected master’s thesis described the shapes of stories. Here, graphic designer Maya Eilan makes a clever infographic out of Vonnegut’s thesis. Or if you prefer, here’s a 5-minute video of Vonnegut himself giving a talk, in his signature funny style, about the idea."

 

This infographic demonstrates Vonnegut's belief that a story's main character has ups and downs that can be graphed to reveal the story's shape:

Visual Loop's selection of keynotes, TED Talks, and interviews by some of the top names in the field:

 

From Visualoop.com:

After the success of our collection of data visualization presentations a few weeks ago, we decided to push even further our research of multimedia resources and take the risk of selecting some videos. And we say risk, because the abundance of data visualization videos on the Internet is simply mind-blowing. Just think about it: How many events are there about information visualization? Dozens, maybe hundreds every year. Then, add the documentaries, interviews and educational videos, and soon you’ll realize, like we did, that this list could easily be up to one hundred or more. That means that a lot of good stuff was left behind, so apologies for that – but feel free to leave your recommendations in the comments section. Also, please note that some of these videos are over one hour long.

Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge.

View three examples of visualizations defining what infographics are, and gain a better understanding of the value of an infographic in education with a video that demonstrates how their potential when used effectively in an educational setting.

From an annual report to a wedding proposal, here are the uses of the popular way to present information online—with examples of each one.

Infographics are everywhere. It seems as if they stormed out of the very recent Internet-connected past.

But if you think about it, the illustrated flow charts cavemen must have drawn on stone walls to demonstrate how to track and kill a wooly mammoth were infographics. They just weren’t called that back then.

What the latest technology and design allow, however, are many wonderful new uses for these handy, attractive conveyors of data...

Nice collection of infographic tools from an expert in digital curation.

I am adding this to my seminar resources. Having another set of tools for my teachers to create their PIE Infographics is important.  Creating visual representations of learning is such a powerful learning for teachers and is a skill they can transfer to their classroom and for students to create in the classroom.

Data visualizations and infographics can make complex datasets easier to understand and comprehend. By creating a graphical represenatation of data and statistics, complicated concepts and information can make more sense in less time.

Many visualizations focus on representing a specific set of data or statistical information. Others focus on less-concrete topics, providing a visual representation of abstract concepts. Generally speaking, the first type appear more like graphs or charts and the latter are often more creative and imaginative.
But visualizations and infographics can be used poorly, too. Putting in too much information (or not enough), using improper formats for the information provided, and other failures are common. Visit the article link for more than 25 useful resources for infographics and data visualization. Most are galleries of effective graphics though some also provide how-to information for information designers...
