Team Data Visualization is proud to present a new set of lesson plans that we’ve designed to be as cohesive as the first. With a little planning, anyone can share a data visualization lesson plan with their students.

The second provides a meditation on rhetorical decisions in photography and helps gets students started with Photoshop.

Mac Scott has a cool solution for evaluating digital assignments by showing how students can use screen recordings in their peer review process.

Ansley Colclough uses Voyant – a free, easy-to-use tool that requires no prior knowledge –  for text analysis in the classroom.
