How many of these skills do you have at your mousetip?
Since 1996 I’ve worked in schools where laptops are ubiquitous for older students. Back in that day we had lots of conversations about visual literacy. I think we may have had in mind an illustration here, a graph there and lots of photographs.
It’s now a whole new world. The ability to evaluate, apply, or create conceptual visual representations is a key skill. Just take a look at this “periodic table” of presentation possibilities from Visual Literacy.org
How many of these skills do you have at your mousetip? And which ones are suited to which projects and presentations? Click on the picture and roll your mouse over the “elements” to get a sample image of that visualization method.
And to answer the question of how many for myself…very few.
