Storytelling with Data
The digital transformation has put the spotlight on language relatively new to L&D, the language of information. This language is relying on data to explain, convince, and even predict. In the future, we're not only expected to show data, we're expected to tell stories with data to motivate people, spark actions, make informed decisions. What other future skills do you need to start growing now? This is one of the question in a recent large scale research study. The results align with other future predictions: curiosity, storytelling, and creativity.
Combining curiosity, storytelling, and creativity, this webinar introduces you to the emerging world of design, art, science, and technology through storytelling with data. We'll start with some inspirational examples where the right mix of these disciplines can show us what data can do when used appropriately. We'll then explore the difference between data and information, various types of data we have in our reach, and we'll learn how to move from just showing data to storytelling with data. Finally, we'll cover five common mistakes people make when visualizing data and touch on tools you can use today to start building your skills.
