Storytelling: The Next Step for Visualization

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."

Just Story It - Scoops

Just Story It - Scoops | iEduc |

Here are the best articles from across the web that I can find on using stories and storytelling in business.

I've chosen them because they actually make a contribution to our knowledge and wisdom about stories, show us how to apply stories to growing our businesses, or give valuable how-to tips.


I weed out all the junk. And besides, who needs another post in why storytelling is important?? Where's the beef?? We want the meat!


I've written reviews of each article to share what I like best, what you can get from reading the article, or what may be missing in the article.


How To Find A Topic: Click on the Filter tab above, and type in a keyword. All the articles with that keyword will appear.


I may occassionally review an article that I think is problematic as a way to educate us all, although most I will simply pass over.  If you wonder if I've seen an article that is not included here, send me a message and I'll respond.

After doing biz story work for over a decade (and with a PhD in Folklore) I hope you find many great insights and tips here. Many thanks for visiting and enjoy the articles!


And I hope you will also visit my website for more tips and tools, & take the free Story IQ assessment so you can see how well developed your storytelling skills and knowledge is:  ;

A Presentation App That Forces You To Tell Better Stories

A Presentation App That Forces You To Tell Better Stories | iEduc |
The dangers of bad a PowerPoint presentation are manifold. It might just mean putting your audience to sleep, or running afoul of the High Council of Information Design.


Now here's something that looks promising! I'm downloading the storytelling app now to my iPad so I can start playing with it. I'll let you know how it goes.


We all need better and easier tools to create digital stories. Part of the trick is figuring out which one YOU like. So I'll keep posting different apps and technologies that appear so you can try them out and decide which one works best for you.


Have fun with this one! If you try it out, what do you think of it?
