Abstract

VisualEyes (www.viseyes.org) is an XML-based online interactive spatial and temporal events browser that allows instructional designers to create content for pre-service and in-service teachers who wish to incorporate dynamic visualizations into their classroom. To date, content development for VisualEyes has focused primarily upon topics within history and social studies. This presentation will discuss those projects, and then present examples from mathematics and science that are currently under construction. Expanding the use of VisualEyes into the STEM content areas might facilitate the progressive channeling of students along the K-20 STEM pipeline. Teachers are invited to collaborate with instructional designers in the development of content for VisualEyes, both within and outside of the STEM areas.
