  8. 8.
  9. 9. Learning with Media - Images<br />What did you see in that image ?<br />(The previous image was created using a program called “Textorizer” – it allows a background image to be overlaid with text)<br />
  10. 10. Learning with Media - Images<br />An image is a two-dimensional representation that has a similar appearance to some subject—usually a physical object or a person.<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image<br />

  17. 17. Learning with Media - Images<br />As we see, an image is a two-dimensional representation.<br />* The 3-D shapes in the previous image are still 2 dimensional – it is just that our brain “sees” them as having depth, length and width.<br />
  18. 18. Learning with Media - Images<br />An image can not only be visual – it can also be mental.<br />When we view (or recollect) a place or event or thing, we form a mental image of it.<br />
  19. 19. Learning with Media - Images<br />If you think of images as mental, then you have to consider that the viewer can influence his/her interpretation of the subject of the image.<br />
  20. 20. Learning with Media - Images<br />Recollection of past events, places and things can be influenced by new information, thus possibly “altering” the image.<br />
  21. 21. Learning with Media - Images<br />Think of how written or verbal information, instructions and knowledge are created.<br />
  22. 22. Learning with Media - Images<br />Now think of how easily information, instructions and knowledge can be misinterpreted – because of the viewer/receiver’s context, history and perspective.<br />
  23. 23. Learning with Media - Images<br />Often images are used by themselves to convey information.<br />Of course, both the creator and viewer have to have a common understanding of the meaning.<br />
  24. 24. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image<br />
  25. 25. Learning with Media - Images<br />Does a picture (image) have any connection or relevance to a fixed number of words ?<br />Does a picture (image) have to have any connection or relevance to any words ?<br />
  26. 26. Learning with Media - Images<br />When using images for educational purposes, we need to be aware of how meaningful an image can be, or not. <br />
