Educators and readers interested in digital storytelling may want to check out this collection of resources from Storybench, a project of Northeastern University's Media Innovation program which describes itself as "[providing] an 'under the hood' look at the most invigorating and inspiring projects in digital storytelling around the world." Visitors to Storybench's For Educators page will find step-by-step tutorials and tips on data analysis, data visualization, and audio storytelling. The data analysis articles focus on the open-source software R and RStudio and begin with "Getting Started with R in RStudio Notebooks," which includes easy-to-follow instructions for novices. The data visualization topics are more varied and include how-to guides for building maps with Google My Maps and CartoDB, creating clustered bubble charts, and using StoryMapJS for digital storytelling. These tutorials were largely created as instructor-led classroom workshops, but they could easily be followed by an interested individual as well.
