  • 1. Virtual Worlds as Visual StorytellingEnvironmentsPhD.st. Anna-Kaisa SjölundUniversity of Turku, Finlandankasj@utu.fitel.+ 358401993501IED Boston 4.6.2013
  • 2. Virtual worlds as visual environments• Virtual worlds are always visual environments.• Storytelling is a very human way to communicate and it iswidely used among educational services.• Information visualization as innovative storytelling technologycan be useful for the next-generation of educational dynamicenvironments for learning.PhD.st. Anna-Kaisa SjölundUniversity of Turku, Finlandankasj@utu.fitel.+ 358401993501IED Boston 4.6.2013
  • 3. Theory behind the story• Qualitative visual analysis offers through open immersion forimages, photographs, videos, digital images opportunity to tellus stories from their own premise.• Open immersion means observing images openly, ‘listening’overtones and discovering connecting and converting patterns.• After more structured and more detailed analysis, images will bereviewed as a whole and search their meanings andsignification.PhD.st. Anna-Kaisa SjölundUniversity of Turku, Finlandankasj@utu.fitel.+ 358401993501IED Boston 4.6.2013
  • 4. Digital Storytelling• Digital storytelling is shown as combining the art of tellingstories with variety of multimedia, videos, manchimas, audioand images.• Visual storytelling could be seen as a process, whereinformation visualization is used to tell complex stories.• Through information visualization data, information andknowledge transforms into visually embedded form to observe,understand and make sense of the information.PhD.st. Anna-Kaisa SjölundUniversity of Turku, Finlandankasj@utu.fitel.+ 358401993501IED Boston 4.6.2013
  • 5. Augmented reality and visual storytelling• AR is technology which allows computer generated virtualimaginary to exactly overlay physical objects in real time”(Zhou, Duh and Billinghurst, 2008).• Technological demands for AR are much more higher than forVR (virtual reality).• Visual displays are more developed than aural (sound), haptic(touch). Olfactory (smell) and gustatory( taste) displays are sofar almost unknown.PhD.st. Anna-Kaisa SjölundUniversity of Turku, Finlandankasj@utu.fitel.+ 358401993501IED Boston 4.6.2013
  • 6. Information Dynamics and Visual Storytelling• Information dynamics in this context refers to production,sharing and connecting students not only to informationresources, but also wider professional online communities.• Information dynamics is seen as behavioral process to produceand share information as well as creating social networks.• Linking language with dynamic visual information, like visualAR-displays in virtual worlds makes possible in the future toreinforce the multimodal fusion of information sources and thecommunication with end-users.PhD.st. Anna-Kaisa SjölundUniversity of Turku, Finlandankasj@utu.fitel.+ 358401993501IED Boston 4.6.2013
