Motion Tool

April 18, 2008 § 1 Comment

I am not easily impressed by the visual frills, but I do remember the passion and expertise with which Hans Rosling presented at TED and Trendalyzer, the visualisation tool he used to enliven his presentation. … I also faintly remember Trendalyzer being acquired Google somewhere in my distant memory….. and then I duly forgot about the tool but I must have recommended Han’s TED talk on numerous occasions. (Look I know I am late to the party but this is a very educational buoyant tool.)

Today, Seb Schmoller blogged about Motion Tool, now a standard components of Google Spreadsheets and all of a sudden numbers are alive! Well interactive, and what is more there are additional tools or gadgets.

Motion charts simply tracking several data points over time producing interactive chart from a simple spreadsheet.

Now the challenge is wow and how to use this visual tool? Collecting data from PE to learning how to use spreadsheets in ICT? Geography world data a la Rowling? Science? Any ideas would be appreciated.
