About the video
Instead of studying history for one year at the university, you can watch this video for less than five minutes.
Income per person (GDP per capita) is adjusted for inflation and for differences in costs of living (purchasing power) across countries. You can play with the data yourself in Gapminder World.
This is a short clip from the longer film The Joy of Stats ©Wingspan Productions for BBC, 2010.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Hans Rosling's work presents a continual series of occasions for hope. As he says at the end of this remarkable data visualization video: "Pretty neat, huh?"

6 Ways Data Journalism is Making Sense of the World

6 Ways Data Journalism is Making Sense of the World | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

When I wrote that Radar was investigating data journalism and asked for your favorite examples of good work, we heard back from around the world.

I received emails from Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Canada and Italy that featured data visualization, explored the role of data in government accountability, and shared how open data can revolutionize environmental reporting...


It was instructive to learn more about the work of two large media organizations, the Los Angeles Times and Canada’s Global News, which have been building their capacity to practice data journalism. The other international perspectives in my inbox and tweet stream, however, were a reminder that big-city newsrooms that can afford teams of programmers and designers aren’t the only players here.acts of data journalism by small teams or individuals aren’t just plausible, they’re happening — from Italy to Brazil to Africa.


That doesn’t mean that the news application teams at NPR, The Guardian, ProPublica or the New York Times aren’t setting the pace for data journalism when it comes to cutting edge work — far from it — but the tools and techniques to make something worthwhile are being democratized.

That’s possible in no small part because of the trend toward open source tools and social coding I’m seeing online, from Open Street Map to more open elections...

An interesting overall look at the state of data journalism on varying scales, as explored through the examination of case studies, resources and applications.

Of particular interest is the role of open data in generating content, and how that may affect the future of data visualization.

Still, the numerous online links provided within the article offer a substantial number of references on a broad range of topics that pertain to data journalism and visualization.

Interview: Alberto Cairo on MOOCs, the future of education and infographics

Interview: Alberto Cairo on MOOCs, the future of education and infographics | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
It’s been a busy year for Alberto Cairo. In January, he started teaching information graphics and visualization at the School of Communication of the University of Miami; in August he published The Functional Art; and, from October to December, he gave his first massive open online course (MOOC) as a teacher.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I've signed up for Professor Cairo's next Mooc.  I've read the first two chapters of his book and I'm already impressed with his thinking!

Introduction to Infographics and Data Visualization Course

I've enrolled in this Mooc. I'ved been fascinated with data visualization for sometime.  This looks like a way for me to advance my knowledge.  To be honest, I don't have a good track record with Moocs. However, I hope to follow my curiousity and be able to show you where it goes! ~ Dennis

Hans Rosling, a professor of global health at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute, became something of an internet celebrity because of his knack for presenting data in extremely imaginative ways. As you'll see above, he's the master of data visualization.

The Best Tools for Visualization

The Best Tools for Visualization | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Visualization is a technique to graphically represent sets of data. When data is large or abstract, visualization can help make the data easier to read or understand. There are visualization tools for search, music, networks, online communities, and almost anything else you can think of. Whether you want a desktop application or a web-based tool, there are many specific tools are available on the web that let you visualize all kinds of data.

100 Diagrams That Changed the World

100 Diagrams That Changed the World | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

A visual history of human sensemaking, from cave paintings to the world wide web.


Since the dawn of recorded history, we’ve been using visual depictions to map the earth, order the heavens, make sense of time, dissect the human body, organize the natural world, perform music, and even decorate abstract concepts like consciousness and love.

100 Diagrams That Changed the World by investigative journalist and documentarian Scott Christianson chronicles the history of our evolving understanding of the world through humanity’s most groundbreaking sketches, illustrations, and drawings, ranging from cave paintings to The Rosetta Stone to Moses Harris’s color wheel to Tim Berners-Lee’s flowchart for a “mesh” information management system, the original blueprint for the world wide web.

But most noteworthy of all is the way in which these diagrams bespeak an essential part of culture — the awareness that everything builds on what came before, that creativity is combinational, and that the most radical innovations harness the cross-pollination of disciplines.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

So often when we understand a concept or the relationship of big ideas, we say "I see!" .  Infographics help us see, and be seeing help us think.  This collection of diagrams have impacted the world we live in.  Take a look, perhaps you'll see...

Denise Eler's curator insight, June 30, 2015 7:26 PM

Quando um gestor pede que uma apresentação de 80 slides seja condensada em 3 slides, ou uma página A3, não tenha dúvida: isto vai exigir de você mais que capacidade de síntese textual. Pensar visualmente, especialmente, criando diagramas é uma competência valiosa. Vejo isso durante meus cursos e vivência com profissionais das mais variadas indústrias. A boa notícia é que dá para aprender ;)

The 16 Most Compelling Infographics Of 2012

The 16 Most Compelling Infographics Of 2012 | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

2012 might be the year which we reached 'peak infographic'.

You can’t have an issue or a piece of data without putting it into a picture so it’s easier for people to understand. While this has mostly resulted in a glut of ugly graphics that don’t actually do anything with data (and you’ll see some of these below), it’s still an incredibly simple way to get information to you fast. And this year, some of our most compelling content has appeared in the format.

These are some of our favorites.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

How do you tell a story with statistics?  How to you make visible the hidden and complex ideas hiding in the numbers?


Infographics is a solid answer for these questions. 


Take a look at some of the best!
