Spatial Visualization--A Gateway to Computer-Based Technology.
Norman, Kent L.
Journal of Special Education Technology, v12 n3 p195-206 Spr 1994
A model is proposed for the influence of individual differences on performance when computer-based technology is introduced. The primary cognitive factor driving differences in performance is spatial visualization ability. Four techniques for mitigating the negative impact of low spatial visualization are discussed: spatial metaphors, graphical user interfaces, interface apparency, and interface manipulatability.
