With the ever increasing use of computers, visualization is used more and more. Powerpoint-fatigue is a
well-known fact. There’s a general feeling that supportive technologies can be useful and effective in
education, however those outcomes are often not achieved. Consequently people start to look for
alternatives: movies, animations and infographics, have become common-practice. These are all powerful
and valuable tools, also in education. It is very important though to ask what type of tool to use, for which
kind of learning and to which purpose. In this article we attempt to derive a taxonomy which will help to make
sound choices, so that visualization can be used effectively.
