El Visual Thinking en el ámbito educativo. En la era digital vivimos una época en la que la experiencia visual es una de las principales formas de acercamiento al saber.

El Visual Thinking en el ámbito educativo

Estamos rodeados de pantallas, inundados de fotografías, gráficos, iconos, etc., pero en la escuela de las competencias y las alfabetizaciones múltiples, la lectura y creación de imágenes ha sido relegada a un segundo plano obviando, entre otras cosas, el potencial que éstas tienen no solo como instrumento de comunicación sino como herramienta de aprendizaje. Es en este ámbito donde, a principios de esta década, docentes como Lara Romero, Dacil González y Pep Hernández apuestan por el poder de la imagen en el proceso de aprendizaje y realizan una serie de experiencias en las que proponen la incorporación del Visual Thinking a las actividades del aula. Aunque el movimiento es incipiente, ya en el curso 2012-2013 comienza a generarse cierto movimiento en torno al uso de la herramienta en el ámbito docente.

MetaTreeMap: An Alternative Visualization Method for Displaying Metagenomic Phylogenic Trees. Abstract Metagenomic samples can contain hundreds or thousands of different species.

MetaTreeMap: An Alternative Visualization Method for Displaying Metagenomic Phylogenic Trees

The most common method to identify these species is to sequence the samples and then classify the reads to nodes along a phylogenic tree. Linear representations of trees with so many nodes face legibility issues. In addition, such views are not optimal for appreciating the read quantity assigned to each node. The problem is exaggerated when comparison between multiple samples is needed.

Data visualization shouldn’t just present bare data, it should tell a story to the reader that makes the data easier to understand. Gartner analyst Martin Kihn puts it well: “Static data—statistics alone—will persuade few. The visualization must communicate a situation that is having an impact and warrants a thoughtful decision. The visualization has to show some kind of movement. Visualize Data, Together. Online JSON Tree Viewer. iTOL: Interactive Tree Of Life.
