Hi everyone and welcome to our OER on Data Visualization (https://juliopalacios3.wixsite.com/etec522). The goal of this OER is to provide you with a general understanding on how data visualization reflects how we interact with not only information, but with the world around us. Furthering this point, we will like to examine the impact data visualization has had on the education sector, its relevance in a wider collective of fields and industries as well as a general forecast of where Data Visualization will continue to excel.
Here is a synopsis of the learning activities that you will have the opportunity to engage in throughout this OER.
