EARLI SIG 2 Comprehension of Text and Graphics
The 2012 meeting of the EARLI Special Interest Group on Comprehension of Text and Graphics will be held at the Pierre-Mendès-France University of Grenoble on August 29-31, 2012.
Mission statement of the SIG 2
SIG2 2 focuses on how learning is influenced by the representation of the learning material. Historically, we focused on text and picture comprehension. However, as there is an explosion of new representations by the introduction of graphical interfaces, the SIG now also considers other forms of representation. These include, but are not limited to, text, pictures, graphs, diagrams, concept maps, animations, equations, virtual reality, information and scientific visualization, haptics, multimedia, hypermedia, and simulations.
Theme of the 2012 meeting
Staging knowledge and experience: How to take advantage of representational technologies in education and training?
