Chartcube transforms static spreadsheets into dynamic presentation cubes. After registering with the app, users can tap the “+” button, which allows them to import a spreadsheet from their email, iCloud, or Dropbox. Once imported, Chartcube presents the data in cube form, and users are able to rotate the cube by swiping sideways or up-and-down. With each swipe, Chartcube presents a different view of the data, and users can add comments off to the side. When viewing the data in cube form, users can tap different places on the cube to access data analytics about the spot tapped. Users can also tap the icons on the top right of the screen to better analyze the data. The “Wrench” icon lets users analyze how the data is setup. The “Graph” icon lets users view the data as a pie chart, a vertical bar chart, a horizontal bar chart, or as an area chart. The “Dialog” button lets users add comments to the cube, and the “Upload” button lets users share the cube over email or as a photo library. Lastly, from the main menu, users can tap the “…” button on the Chartcube icon to share it with other users, rename it, copy it, or delete it. Users can then access the Chartcube shared with them using the “Two Person” icon on the left of the screen.

Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can upload data as a Chartcube using this app and email a copy of it to their students. Students will then have to analyze the data, and teachers can use guiding questions to support student analysis. For example, teachers can ask students: (1) Which view of the Chartcube is the most valuable?, (2) What information did you learn from this data?, (3) Explain if this data builds on itself or if the information is disparate. Students can reply to these prompts and others using an office app.
  2. Teachers can require students to collect data from an experiment or through research and save that data as a spreadsheet. Students can then import the data into a Chartcube. Teachers can have students analyze the data, in the form of both a spreadsheet and a Chartcube, and students can explain in writing which mode of data presentation is more useful to them.
  3. As a project, students can create a Chartcube and share it with one another. As they work through the project, students can add comments that explain or document questions, ideas, and future plans for the project.
  4. When presenting quantitative data, students can use this app as a visual aid.
