Vizable

Vizable transforms spreadsheet data into bar charts and line graphs. To create their charts and graphs, users must input their own data into an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file. Next, users import their spreadsheet data by linking an online storage space (e.g., Dropbox, Google Drive) to the app. Once linked, users can browse and select the file they wish to import. After doing so, Vizable will transform the data into both a bar chart and line graph, which allows users to analyze the data for patterns.

Vizable transforms spreadsheet data into bar charts and line graphs. To create their charts and graphs, users must input their own data into an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file. Next, users import their spreadsheet data by linking an online storage space (e.g., Dropbox, Google Drive) to the app. Once linked, users can browse and select the file they wish to import. After doing so, Vizable will transform the data into both a bar chart and line graph, which allows users to analyze the data for patterns. Users can tap the different parts of the chart and graph to manipulate it, and they can tap the “Add Filter” button on the top left of the screen to adjust the type and way they are viewing the data. To navigate the data, users must tap the left and right arrow keys on the top right. Users can also export their chart and graph over email or social media by tapping the “Diagonal Arrow” on the top right of the screen.

Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can have students gather data and input it into a spreadsheet. The data can be collected from a scientific experiment, online research, or observation. Students can then import the data into this app and view it as a bar chart and line graph. Students will then have to identify patterns they see in the data and explain the meaning of those patterns.
  2. Teachers can create a scenario that connects to data they have inputted into a spreadsheet. Teachers can explain the scenario and share the data with students. Students will then import the spreadsheet into this app, and they will offer ideas in response to the scenario based on the data. For example, the scenario could be that a new business is struggling to make profits and the business owner wishes to reduce wasteful spending. The teacher could create spreadsheet that shows where, why, and how the business is spending money. Students will be responsible for analyzing that data and making suggestions regarding better, more strategic spending strategies to the business owner. Students can write their suggestions using an Office app, and the teacher can facilitate a class conversation based on those suggestions.
  3. When giving a presentation, students can use this app as a visual aid while sharing data.
