I recently presented about the mechanics of data visualization at the CLaRI Literacy Conference to a group of researchers, teachers and school administrators. The presentation is based on the work of Few (2012; 2009).
While the presentation itself is not about R directly, the slides were created by reports(Rinker, 2013)/slidify (Vaidyanathan, 2012) and most of the graphics were also created within R. I have included the following for your learning:
- YouTube Video of the presentation
- The presentation slides
- The .Rmd and .bib to create the presentation
- The extra_functions.R file
