Award winning educational video, Vis Lab & Martian caves

Here are a few links:

Mars is pure enigma tainted red and placed in the sky with warm cave entrances spotted at night. Drawing the retrograde motion of Mars was a powerful early lesson on the power of manual visualization (paper and pencil).

Voyagers and Voyeurs: Supporting Asynchronous Collaborative Information Visualization

Looking at the potential of these tools health care managers and decision makers are going to have indigestion. Health care information departments will no longer be playing catch-up, but will be providing data and information (directly or through a clearing service of some sort). The key issues then will be analysis, interpretation-significance and action. That latter point seems a perfectly timed invitation for public engagement, engagement beyond tokenism.

I found this short (award winning) film entitled TEACHING TEACHING & UNDERSTANDING UNDERSTANDING very interesting especially in light of the deep post last weekend. For me this video highlights a role for Hodges' model in education. If students arrive at university with a well-used conceptual framework will they be predisposed to deep understanding?
