Summary of Unit 4

Explores visualisation technologies and their application in education. It defines two types of visualisation as information and data visualisation and describes their values for both teaching and learning. The unit considers the different types of learning styles and the theoretical underpinnings. It embeds visualisation within these theories as visual learning is considered among the most important styles of learning. The unit further explores theories supporting the importance of visual learning and looks at a number of exemplars of visualisation in the teaching of humanities, mathematics, science and technology. As an extension of visualisation the unit also explores the emerging interest and experience in using games for purposes of teaching and learning.
