Visual and Spatial Modes in Science Learning
Ramadas, Jayashree
International Journal of Science Education, v31 n3 p301-318 Feb 2009
This paper surveys some major trends from research on visual and spatial thinking coming from cognitive science, developmental psychology, science literacy, and science studies. It explores the role of visualisation in creativity, in building mental models, and in the communication of scientific ideas, in order to place these findings in the context of science education research and practice.
