Merging Art and Technology: Computer Mediated Teaching.
Robinson, Rhonda S.; Manlove, Linda
Technology, software, and design activities that have been used to create presentations for a class in visual literacy taught to graduate students in the instructional technology program of Northern Illinois University are described. In the past, the language of visuals was introduced through a slide and tape produced for the class. An additional method of exemplifying and practicing the terms associated with visual literacy that is now being implemented is the use of a visual database and a computer-assisted lecture and discussion. An exercise in visual problem solving has been developed into a computer mediated-lecture and discussion. In addition, students add to the visual database themselves by locating frames on videodisc, scanning materials or video-digitizing images, and preparing their own class presentations. Visuals can be derived from computer-generated images, digitized images, video files, and analog storage. Exercises in locating, generating, and selecting a series of visuals would provide examples for much of the language of visual literacy. Three figures illustrate the discussion.
