August of Dataviz
I have been teaching the course of information design for over two years now, and as I always say, my greatest satisfaction is to take a tour of the good things that these boys and girls have achieved with their projects change each cycle.
For this opportunity, my students worked on three projects, the first was the creation of pieces focusing on processes, for this I left them some issues to assist in the process and make more effective taking a decision, the second project was the creation of an analysis of literary works, in this case the intention was that from some books that previously chose to give them a pdf of these works, the students seek ways to visualize related to such works topics, the latest project was a a little free theme, with this the idea was to make a graphic interpretation of a classic tale, fairy tales that end up being interpreted with certain rules of any visual form.
interesting ways of looking at information through the eyes of my students, I invite you to see the whole pot with the description of the work and others at visual744 here: http://bit.ly/1hf7UlF use google chrome for translation from Spanish.
