About VISE

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.

Several different VISE-projects

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).

Within the framework of Vise, a number of research publications has been produced
