LAK21 Workshop: A Tutorial on Data Storytelling for Learning Analytics Dashboards

Date: Tuesday, 13th April 2021
Time: 04:00 PM
Location: Zoom


APRIL 13, 2021 – DAY 2, 4 PM TO 7 PM PST (according to LAK pre-conference schedule)


From a human-centered perspective, supporting educational stakeholders to interpret dashboards and visualizations poses critical design challenges that may often be trivialized. Teachers’ and students’ interpretation of visualized data is essentially the construction of a narrative about the learning process.Applying data storytelling techniques to design these visualizations can support the generation of insights derived from educational data by aligning the intended learning design, goals and outcomes with visual elements.  The aim of this tutorial is to introduce participants to embrace data storytelling techniques into the design of visualizations and dashboards that can communicate meaningful insights.
