Abstract

Data literacy has become a critical skill for dealing with the complexities of the information-driven society of the 21st century. At the same time, data visualization has long escaped the boundaries of science and has become a pervasive - often unrecognized - part of our everyday lives. In this paper we introduce Diagram Safari, an educational game to foster data literacy among children 9 to 11 years old by teaching about diagrams and charts in a playful way. We report on the iterative design process and on a preliminary evaluation with 23 children showing that the game was well received and that the difficulty was appropriate for the target audience.
