Seminar on Visualization for Science Education

Heads up on the following seminar on how visualizations can be leveraged for science learning...

Making Sense of Science through Visualization will be presented by Roy Tasker  on  20 April 2012, 11-12pm  at The University of Sydney.
 A deep understanding of chemistry requires the ability to imagine the invisible molecular world to explain the observable world. Only then do abstract chemical formulas and equations become meaningful communication, and fundamental concepts become ‘internalised’. Indeed, all sciences require seamless movement between observable, imagined and symbolic thinking levels. Thinking at these levels can be facilitated through learning designs – sequences of learning activities with specific learning outcomes.  More info at the Institute for Innovation in Science & Mathematics Education.
