#Viz2educate focuses on creating a high-quality bank of educational resources for teachers worldwide. Teachers will have free access to dig into subject-related visualizations.
Use Social Media and Data Visualization to:
- Create an online gallery of educational resources for teachers and students globally.
- Create visualizations that do not only help teachers with access to unlimited resources, but also instigate the next generation toward data visualization.
- Our gallery will be a one-stop-shop for subjects like geography, history, science, etc. The visualizations will be based on a curated global syllabus post discussion with teachers from around the globe.
Each month, we will be creating visualizations on a specific topic which is part of the global education syllabus. For each month we will focus on a different subject which will be announced on the website at the start of the month. We will be sharing our creations with the #datafam and the wider teaching community.
- Start of the month –We will share a post with information on that month’s chosen topic, along with some useful links and websites just in case you guys want to join in!
- Middle of the month – We will share our visualizations and highlight any submissions from the community.
- End of the month – We will share a blog post discussing our viz, as well as highlighting any further submissions from the data community. We will be uploading all visualizations in our gallery which will serve as a resource portal for teachers around the globe.
Want to get involved?
Although this is not a typical project in that we don’t provide monthly data, we would love for you to join in with our chosen topic for each month. If you feel like you have a viz that you think would be a great resource for teachers or students, then please use our hashtag and submit your viz to be featured in our online gallery!
How to Submit Your Viz?

- Share your visualizations on Twitter and LinkedIn with the hashtag #Viz2educate and tag both of us.
- Enter your viz into the submission tracker to be featured in our teaching resources gallery.
How else can you get involved?
We do understand that there are a lot of monthly community projects out there and to participate in everything seems arduous since we haven’t yet discovered a way to add more hours to the day. There are other great ways that you can get involved!
