7 Data Visualization Tools You Can Use In The Classroom

7 Data Visualization Tools You Can Use In The Classroom | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

No matter what happens, there will always be a demand for data visualization tools. Data on its own can be pretty boring and brightening it up with images and other visual tools, it can make normally inaccessible information much easier to digest. (Editor’s Note: It’s also great for information reading literacy, and the new Common Core demand for multimedia “texts.”)

 

There are a number of fantastic tools out there that will present your data in an accessible manner. All of the tools listed below are free and chances are you’ve used one or two of the tools mentioned before.

C'est une tendance de fond : la représentation graphique des données, éléments clés de l'entreprise, des compétences ou des valeurs... Mais que faire lorsqu'on manque de ressources (pas de graphiste/infographiste) en interne ou en externe ? Les 10 outils présentés sont intéressants, souvent gratuit et le post comprend en plus des conseils pour conceptualiser son infographie, étape indispensable avant même de passer à la réalisation.

Is Big Data still a big mystery to you? 

In recent years, the volume of information coming into companies has exploded, so that many IT organizations are dealing with extremely large sets of data. 

IT leaders are rethinking many aspects of how they manage and deliver information, from investments in infrastructure and analytics tools to new policies for organizing and accessing data so they can deliver more of it, faster. They are concerned that if they don't have the right tools and architectures to deal with all that information, then big data can be a big problem. Check out these infographics on Big Data to see the impact...

10 Awesome Free Tools To Make Infographics

10 Awesome Free Tools To Make Infographics | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Maybe you want create your own infographic, here 10 tools to support you to do it. [note mg]

 

Information graphics, visual representations of data known as infographics, keep the web going these days. Web users, with their diminishing attention spans, are inexorably drawn to these shiny, brightly coloured messages with small, relevant, clearly-displayed nuggets of information. They’re straight to the point, usually factually interesting and often give you a wake-up call as to what those statistics really mean.

 

Who can resist a colourful, thoughtful venn diagram anyway? In terms of blogging success, infographics are far more likely to be shared than your average blog post. This means more eyeballs on your important information, more people rallying for your cause, more backlinks and more visits to your blog. In short, a quality infographic done well could be what your blog needs right now.
