Mission statement

SIG2 2 focuses on how learning is influenced by the form of representation that learners study. Historically, we focussed on text and picture comprehension but given the explosion of representations made available since the introduction of graphical interfaces, the SIG now considers all forms of representation including but not limited to:  text, pictures, graphs, diagrams, concept maps, animations, equations, virtual reality, information and scientific visualization, haptics, multimedia, hypermedia, and simulations.
