Abstract
Visual literacy, supported by the use of visualization in teaching and instruction, ultimately achieves a greater degree of learning (Stokes, 2002). This chapter will discuss and analyze how visualization approaches, coupled with a focus on increasing information understanding and analysis, will extend visual literacy to cultivate visual data literacy; construct critical and higher-level thinking; encourage data-driven decision-making; and transform learning from a participatory, passive experience to a rich and interactive one via visual dialogue. This chapter will provide examples for how to integrate information and visualization to develop data literacy, drawing from academic literature and case studies from practiced, interdisciplinary data visualization educators.
