Selected projects

  • I am at the moment director of three different research projects funded by 1) the Swedish Research Council, 2) Marcus and Amalia Wallenberg´s memorial fund and 3) Vinnova (the government’s agency for innovation). Together with colleagues, I am involved in these collaborating projects. The overarching aim for the work is to investigate emerging interactions in elementary and secondary classrooms that include “tools” for visual storytelling and visual analytics.

  • VISE is short for Visual Storytelling in Education. It is a multidisciplinary collaboration between Linkoping University, the Department of Social and Welfare Studies, the Department of Science, the National center of Visual Analysis and Norrköping Municipality.

  • We have worked within the framework of VISE since 2011. We have two completed projects behind us, but also four active projects:

    - VISE in practice, 2015 – 2017, financier, Norrkoping Research Fund. Visual Storytelling (methods for creating interactive visualizations).

    - Students Visual Storytelling, 2015 – 2017, financier Vinnova.

    - Visual data and K 12 Students – Translations through Visual Analytics and Knowledge Visualization, 2015 – 2019, financier Marcus och Amelia Wallenberg’s memorial fund.

    - Didactic Design and Visual Literacy, 2016 – 2020, financier Swedish Research Council.

  • All projects relate in different ways to a variety of central concepts:

    Visual Analytics – tools for analyzing large amounts of data.

    Visual Storytelling – methods for creating interactive visualizations.

    Visual Literacy – the ability to translate pictures, shapes, and colors to understanding, as well as the ability to produce visual messages and effectively communicate these to an audience.

    Knowledge Visualization – to express and organize knowledge, to be able to show and use the value of new knowledge, for instance, to arrange concepts graphically, to structure text and pictures in a meaningful way, etcetera.

    Didactic design – generally pedagogical setups that support learning processes, but specifically pedagogical setups that combine Visual Analytics (VA) and Knowledge Visualization (KV).
