Information Visualization Tools

The effective use of any technology in teaching requires thoughtful consideration and planning. Whether low tech (a chalkboard) or high tech (a 3-D interactive visualization), a tool’s learning benefits depend on when, where, how, and why you use it. We can help you find a tool or set of tools that align with your goals, and provide you support as you select and integrate solutions effectively into your teaching.
