2011 (English)In: The 2nd International Multi-conference on Complexity, Informatics and Cybernetics: IMCIC 2011 / [ed] N. Callos, H.-W. Chu, W. Lesso, M.J. Savoie, F. Welsch, C.D. Zinn, Orlando, Florida: International Institute of Informatics and Systemics , 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents a study of how geographic information visualization and Visual Storytelling (geovisual analytics) will be applied in school settings in order to 1) customize the application for educational purpose, 2) improve the teaching in social science and 3) study teachers and students experiences and learning. - The application “Open Statistics eXplorer” will be used to improve the students knowledge and understanding of sophisticated statistical relations, - Teachers will be able to, individually and together, develop a dynamic teaching material through storytelling, through the web, - Students will be able to, with help of powerful geographical statistics, explore statistical relations on their own. A better understanding of how educators and their students can elicit deeper user understanding and participation by exploiting dynamic web-enabled statistics visualization is of importance. Together with the associated science of perception in learning in relation to the use of multidimensional spatio-temporal statistical data this will contribute to the research fields of geovisual analytics as well as educational science.
