It is not how much information is there but rather how effectively it is arranged
Key Points from Tufte, 1990
Principles of information design are universals – like mathematics – and are not tied to unique features of a particular culture.
Key Points from Lester (2000)
During the lesson, I was impressed by the interactive representation from classmates, especially for their creativities in the design. It seemed that visual format could capture people’s attentions. As the task assigned by Daniel, examining the five visual display of same information about giant squid stimulated me much on the the desing of reprentation. Actually, physics concepts were frequently represented by picture, graphs, diagams or others. Concept map should be better seen by viewer for informaiton. In reading the picture, viewers caught the message from the limited information seen only by a glance or a small area. Visual display was usually more attractive than words. It impressed someone to remember the image that may be retained in human brain. This visual aids in teaching not only made student easier to learn, but also necessary to make them to understand. No matter what culture it is, or by any language can understand those concepts. Undoubtedly, visual display is universal.
