Interaction Literacy in Data Science and Visualization

This talk tries to explore and define the concept of ‘Interaction Literacy’ as one of the big new literacies of the modern age, besides ‘data literacy’ and ‘visualization literacy’. Interaction literacy may refer to the knowledge and ability of proactive interaction with the data, the ability to ask questions and formulate hypotheses, to mi-trust data and to find ways to engage with that data. The talk will lead through a couple of examples including my from my own work which illustrates different aspects of data literacy. Similar to data literacy and visualization literacy, interaction literacy might help us educate the next generation of citizens, able for a responsive engagement with ‘big data’.
