Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 6, 2013 4:48 PM

Here's the next stop on the data and visual storytelling journey. While the previous article I curated focused on the history of visual storytelling, this research article addresses 'what's next.'


For the authors of the article -- what's next is the presentation and communication of data that has played only a minor role in research up to this point.


Click on the title of the article "Storytelling: The Next Step for Visualization" at the bottom of the blurb to get a free copy of the research paper. 


The research paper itself focuses on journalism as storytelling -- which it is, but it is not the only method or approach. So the article is limiting in that way. 


Still, there are some good insights about how data visualization needs to move more directly into storytelling using story delivery techniques.


Iin the end, the authors Robert Kosara and Jock Mackinlay say: 

"Storytelling promises to open up entirely new avenues of research in visualization. Going from exploration to analysis to presentation is a natural progression, which is mirrored by the research effort focused on these steps over time. As the field becomes more mature and provides many useful techniques for the first two steps, we need to start focusing on presentation. This is even more important as visualization gets used for decision-making, where the succinct presentation of important facts is crucial."

Cette playlist Youtube regroupe pour le moment 60 courtes vidéos (de 1 à 5 minutes) pour découvrir les fonctionnalités de Scratch et apprendre à l'utiliser.

Scratch peut s'utiliser directement en ligne ou bien s'installer sur un ordinateur pour un usage hors-ligne.

 

NB : L'auteur de ces vidéos propose également une autre playlist similaire pour découvrir et apprendre à utiliser Snap! qui est un autre environnement de programmation basé sur Scratch mais fonctionnant entièrement en ligne, tout en HTML5 :

Research Shows Students Learn Better When They Figure Things Out On Their Own

Research Shows Students Learn Better When They Figure Things Out On Their Own | iEduc | Scoop.it

Neuroscience proves what effective educators have known all along. In some instances, research illuminates a topic and changes our existing beliefs. For example, here’s a post that challenges the myth of preferred learning styles. Other times, you might hear about a study and say, “Well, of course that’s true!” This might be one of those moments.

Last year, Dr. Karlsson Wirebring and fellow researchers published a study that supports what many educators and parents have already suspected: students learn better when they figure things out on their own, as compared to being told what to do.
