As a sort of technical person, I thought I might run a Make, Play and Teach session on how to make visualisations which have a greater pedagogical use and benefit that a pie chart that wobbles a little and is no better than what excel could give you.
Some examples I’ve made in past that I’d be happy to share development methods and approaches for
1) ww1centenary.oucs.ox.ac.uk/tag/interactive-maps/ – A variety of wikipedia and crowdsourced maps made using Google Earth
2) www.flickr.com/photos/76886454@N02/sets/ – Variety of visualisations made from Plays / Books
3) www.openjoyce.com/visualisations/ – Some visualisation tools, that take user input
Happy to be led as to what people would like to learn though
