“Why do we need to understand data visualisations? There is more and more data around us, and data are increasingly used in decision-making, journalism, and to make sense of the world. One of the main ways that people get access to data is through visualisations, but lots of people feel like they don’t have the skills and knowledge to make sense of visualisations. This can mean that some people feel left out of conversations about data.” – http://seeingdata.org/developing-visualisation-literacy/
Please conduct the following activity located at the following address:
Tell us what you think of the visualisations that we used in our focus group research. Instructions below!
What to do
Choose three of your favorite visualisations. Post a 3 – 5 sentence summary of why you chose thevisualisations. What caught your attention? Were they effective in presenting the provided data? If possible, explain how you would you do to improve the visualization?
When replying to a classmate, offer your opinion on what they posted and the visualisations they chose. Using at least 3 – 5 sentences explain what you agree or disagreed with their evaluation of the visualisations.
