About the Project: The annual Barnardos School Costs Survey is one of our biggest pieces of advocacy work around the issue of education. We gather data and comments from parents about the cost of school, and deliver a briefing paper, visualisations, expert commentary, features and many other pieces of content from it. In past years I’ve created infographics, but this year decided to investigate the possibilities of digital storytelling for packaging the results.
Using the interactive storytelling tool Klynt, I built this multimedia report which uses visuals, statistics, audio clips and videos to give an overview of the cost of education in Ireland in 2014.
Feedback on the report has been really strong with users saying they found it engaging and accessible. The report was embedded on the RTE News website, among others.
