Design Brief – Information visualization concerns the visual representation of abstract data. The visualization of information can be extremely powerful for understanding processes, such as the demographic evolution of a population, that require the consideration of a large amount of data. Although information visualizations is used in educational settings, the role of students is mainly that of a viewer. Ubiquitous initiatives towards open data may facilitate a more active student role in dealing with data and its representation. What skills are required in order to visualize information? When can information visualization be a powerful resource for students to gain a deeper understanding of complex issues? How can visualization information be used to support the students’ knowledge building processes? Food for thought: gapminder.org/ AND 958.ibm.com/software/data/cognos/manyeyes/
