Tell me and I forget, show me and I remember, involve me and I understand
I’m a Norwegian design student at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, trying to learn both how to make good visual explanations while also getting a handle on web programming (Processing). My aim is to develop and improve the science interactives used in Secondary High Schools. Currently I’m working on a model that explains plate tectonics.

About “Library of Visual Explanations”
“Library of Visual Explanations” is a place where I gather educational visualizations that I find online. Use the search bar to find a specific visualization, or select categories (top left, next to header) and tags (bottom right) to sort the visualizations. Where I go to find visual explanations (or at least some of the places):
- Viz of the Day | Tableau Public
- EagerEyes is Robert Kosara’s place to reflect on the world of information visualization and visual communication of data.
- Dustin Smith’s Chart Porn
- The blog of Kaiser Fung: Junk Charts
- Nathan Yau’s FlowingData
- Information Aesthetics designed and maintained by Andrew Vande Moere
- David’s E-Learning Examples
- Overview of the Interactive Graphics of The Guardian and The New York Times
- 13pt is the studio of Jonathan Corum, an information designer and science graphics editor at The New York Times.
- Graham Roberts’ Portfolio (Roberts is a Graphics Editor at The New York Times)
- The Learning Network – Teaching & Learning With The New York Times is a great place to find educational visualizations made by The New York Times (remember to look through the comments as well). Just use the tag “Infographics” and you’re good to go.
