SQL server database latest version is installed and its connection with the proposed visualization tools is tested. Appendix/ data dictionary is analyzed. Our aim for this project is tell stories using data visualizations. This will be accomplished by developing various types of visualization to appreciate and identify trends in data. 3 suggested visualizations, i.e.
Information visualizations is the study of presenting abstract information to reinforce human understanding. “ Proficient reader spontaneously and purposely create mental images while and after they read. The images emerge from all five senses as well as the emotion and are anchored in a reader’s prior knowledge. “ said Susan Zimmermann and Elline Oliver in their book Mosaic of Thoughts: The Power of Comprehension Strategy Instruction. What is more, as mentioned in Visualization and Computer Graphics Issue 6, visualizing information for some students is an easier way to understand and absorb information and it improves educational performance.
Visualization is coming of age. With visual depictions being seamlessly integrated into documents, and data visualization techniques being used to understand increasingly large and complex datasets, the term "visualization"' is becoming used in everyday conversations. But we are on a cusp; visualization researchers need to develop and adapt to today's new devices and tomorrow's technology. Today, people interact with visual depictions through a mouse. Tomorrow, they'll be touching, swiping, grasping, feeling, hearing, smelling, and even tasting data.
Data display can help the researcher to highlight findings and draw conclusions (Hall, 2014). Data display makes data compact and immediately accessible; therefore, a large amount of data can be viewed at once, and well understood to easily draw a conclusion. Flow charts and data matrix are the most common strategies for data display. In this study, the data are displayed by investigation consequence as flow charts and data
Basically any image either signs, typography drawing photograph animation used to communicate or to inform some kind of message or idea came in the field of visual communication. It is one of the oldest disciplines in the humanities. The evolution of visual communication can be seen from ancient cave painting to the modern Computer graphics. Wikipedia defines visual communication as: “Visual communication is the communication of ideas through the visual display of information. Primarily associated with two dimensional images, it includes: art, signs, photography, and typography, drawing, graphic design, illustration, industrial design, Advertising, Animation color and electronic resources.
Third, this school is using 2013 curriculum due to the district government policy to implement 2013 curriculum independently. 3.3 Data Instruments In this study, various data instruments were used to gain the information related to the research questions. They are documents analysis (on lesson plans), observations, and interviews. Further, this section concerned the kinds of instruments used to collect the data, the functions of each data, and the source of instruments. 3.3.1 Document
Data and information will be presented using point themes to allow users have a reliable presentation from all points of view. Struwig and Stead (2007) assert that data analysis methods enable the researcher to organise and bring meaning to the large amount of data. Content analysis was used for this study. In content analysis themes are extracted from the data. Themes can be extracted through coding of data, elaborating on the data, interpreting then checking of the data into categories or themes that cut across all of data sources.
Ellis and Howard (2008) defined graphic organizers as spatial tools that commonly uses lines, circles, and boxes to represent and depict organization of important information in different ways of hierarchical, cause/effect, compare/contrast and cyclic or linear sequence. Such representation of necessary information of a topic makes communication facilitated. Ellis and Howard claimed, when the organizers used as tools of instruction for teaching different skills of writing, reading comprehension, thinking , learning of content, the tools can be effective scaffolding for learning of the skills for students with various ages, grade levels, and abilities. The organizers are also effective instructional tools for both visual and auditory learners. Because, according to Ellis and Howard (2008), a decisive factor for learning and information processes is not intellectual aptitude of learners but the complexity of materials, learners ' experience with material and his memory capability and teachers ' pedagogical skills and capabilities.
Vision is a massive part of the corporeal brain. Visual functioning of the brain roughly takes away 50% of the whole. An infograph is a sort of picture that merges data with design (Smiciklas, 2012). Word cloud is a classic infographic tool. It is a prevalent visualization of words classically allied with Internet keywords and text data.
