Visualizations are external physical entities (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 5 «As a result, Distributed Cognition puts an emphasis on observable representations that are external to the human mind but within a cognitive system.» Streeb, Dirk: March 2, 2018
Visualizations are open for interaction (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 2 «Hutchins puts it this way: “tools permit us to transform difficult tasks into ones that can be done by pattern matching, by the manipulation of simple physical systems, or by mental simulations of manipulations of simple physical systems. Tools are useful precisely because the cognitive processes required to manipulate them are not the computational processes accomplished by their manipulation.”» Streeb, Dirk: March 2, 2018
Visualizations are open for mental interaction (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 2 «Hutchins puts it this way: “tools permit us to transform difficult tasks into ones that can be done by pattern matching, by the manipulation of simple physical systems, or by mental simulations of manipulations of simple physical systems. Tools are useful precisely because the cognitive processes required to manipulate them are not the computational processes accomplished by their manipulation.”» Streeb, Dirk: March 2, 2018
Visualizations enable application of visuospatial skills to abstract domains (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 5.3 «Distributed cognitive tasks are thus accomplished by means of an interplay between perceptual processes acting with external representations and processes acting with internal representations.» Streeb, Dirk: March 2, 2018
Visualizations externalize constraints (+) Positive One or more subsections sec. 5.3 «In the donut version, rule 3 is external in the sense that the physical constraints in the representation guarantee that the rule is followed…» Streeb, Dirk: March 2, 2018
Visualizations re-represent structures (+) Positive One or more paragraphs sec. 5 «The role of representation in cognitive tasks has been extensively studied in cognitive science.» Streeb, Dirk: March 2, 2018
Visualizations re-represent structures (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 2 «Hutchins puts it this way: “tools permit us to transform difficult tasks into ones that can be done by pattern matching, by the manipulation of simple physical systems, or by mental simulations of manipulations of simple physical systems. Tools are useful precisely because the cognitive processes required to manipulate them are not the computational processes accomplished by their manipulation.”» Streeb, Dirk: March 2, 2018
Visualizations show visual patterns (+) Positive One or more sentences sec. 2 «Hutchins puts it this way: “tools permit us to transform difficult tasks into ones that can be done by pattern matching, by the manipulation of simple physical systems, or by mental simulations of manipulations of simple physical systems. Tools are useful precisely because the cognitive processes required to manipulate them are not the computational processes accomplished by their manipulation.”» Streeb, Dirk: March 2, 2018
Visualizations support external memorization (+) Positive Less than a sentence sec. 5.3 «In summarizing their interpretation of the experimental results, they argue that external representations serve as more than inputs to the mind or memory aids.» Streeb, Dirk: March 2, 2018
