CILT2000: Visualization and modeling

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


CILT2000 helped VisMod evolve from a collection of local and distinct research and development efforts into a solid field of education. Previous intellectual efforts focused around (a) modeling and simulation tools, (b) visual explanation tools, (c) visual data analysis tools, (d) exploring student needs in the context of VisMod, and (e) exploring instructional frameworks for VisMod. These focus areas have evolved in two main trajectories, representing the evolution of the field, the generalization trend, which seeks to identify general principles and guidelines for designing learning environments, and the equitable application trend, seeking to use knowledge gained in the field to leverage education in general.
