Abstract

This interactive poster symposium features research groups investigating how visualizations and aligning instructional approaches promote students' deep understanding of physical sciences. The participating studies take advantage of computerized visualizations to bridge abstract science concepts and students' intuitive ideas of physical phenomena. These studies reveal how the visualizations help students improve their understanding of science over time by employing mixed methods such as data from student performances on pre-post tests and student practices during the learning process. These posters provide insights about how students learn from visualizations and propose effective design approaches to augment the impact of computerized visualizations.
