Learning from Dynamic Visualization: Innovations in Research and Application

Description

This edited volume explores innovations that have far-reaching implications for the design and use of dynamic visualizations in education.

Dynamic visualizations are non-static representations of an educational concept or information. This book examines the dynamic visual components of multimedia educational resources (e.g., animations, interactive simulations) and highlights how they can influence learning.

With contributions from renowned researchers and expert practitioners, the book:

  • Explores how to collect better evidence of the educational outcomes that might result from learning with dynamic visualizations
  • Introduces general approaches for improving learning from dynamic visualizations by supporting how learners process the information presented
  • Examines the potential of specific intervention strategies intended to improve how learners process the information

Jodi Davenport and Edys Quellmalz of WestEd’s STEM program and SimScientists project wrote a key chapter, “Assessing Science Inquiry and Reasoning Using Dynamic Visualizations and Interactive Simulations.”
