Weel 7: 13.4 Information and Data

Before we move on to looking at ‘Data’, we’ll finish the section on ‘Information’ by looking at ‘Presentation’. In this we’ll look at:

  •  Intended Audience
  • Appropriate means or methods of presentation, including computer printouts,
    presentation graphics, DTP, videoconferencing, graphs and charts and written presentation.

Follow this link on statistical data presentation tools which gives sound ideas as to when certain charts and graphs could be used. We’re then going to review the section on ‘Data‘ from the teach_ict website. A set of notes on this topic is available here.
