1. Malone, Erica Renee. Investigating the Role of an Interactive Simulation Model on the Ability to Visualize Concepts Related to Gross Anatomy.

Degree: MS, Visualization, 2016, Texas A&M University

Currently many different types of visual aids are available for teaching and studying gross anatomy: illustrations, cadavers, static physical models, plastinated models, and dissection videos are a few examples. These visual aids may be used to identify structures and, in some cases, to facilitate understanding of the spatial relationships amongst structures. However, knowing the identity and location of a structure is only a portion of the content that should be mastered in a gross anatomy course. A knowledge of the basic functions of structures is crucial to understanding anatomy and is often only explained verbally or in text. One major function that current teaching and learning tools leave to the imagination is that of skeletal muscle – the concept of movement. One possible solution to address this oversight is the creation of a kinetic, interactive model that demonstrates movement. In order to create the optimum teaching and learning tool, creation of this type of model should incorporate aspects of many different disciplines and should facilitate student learning by providing engaging and intuitive interaction. To demonstrate the effects on incorporating such a tool into anatomy education, a physical based interactive kinetic simulation model of the canine pelvic limb was constructed. Undergraduate students enrolled in the Biomedical Anatomy course at Texas A&M University were separated into two groups based on their lab section, one of which was allowed to use the model while the other was not. Positive student feedback as well as improved quiz scores show that the interactive simulation model had a positive effect on student comprehension in anatomy education.

2. Fei, Shenfeng. Co-located Collaborative Information-based Ideation through Embodied Cross-Surface Curation.

Degree: MS, Computer Science, 2014, Texas A&M University

We develop an embodied cross-surface curation environment to support co-located, collaborative information-based ideation. Information-based ideation (IBI) refers to tasks and activities in which people generate and develop significant new ideas while working with information. Curation is the process of gathering and assembling objects in order to express ideas. The linear media and separated screens of prior curation environments constrain expression. This research utilizes information composition of rich bookmarks as the medium of curation. Visual representation of elements and ability to combine them in a freeform, spatial manner mimics how objects appear and can be manipulated in the physical world. Metadata of rich bookmarks leverages capabilities of the WWW. We equip participants with personal IBI environments, each on a mobile device, as a base for contributing to curation on a larger, collaborative surface. We hypothesize that physical representations for the elements and assemblage of curation, layered with physical techniques of interaction, will facilitate co-located IBI. We hypothesize that consistent physical and spatial representations of information and means for manipulating rich bookmarks on and across personal and collaborative surfaces will support IBI. We hypothesize that the small size and weight of personal devices will facilitate participants shifting their attention from their own work to each other and collaboration. We evaluated the curation environment by inviting couples to participate in a home makeover design task in a living-room lab. We demonstrated that our embodied cross-surface curation environment supports creative thinking, facilitates communication, and stimulates engagement and creativity in collaborative IBI.

3. Arita, Janelle. The Role of Materiality in Tangibles for Young Children's Digital Art Drawings.

Degree: MS, Visualization, 2015, Texas A&M University

The purpose of this study is to explore the role of materiality in tangible interaction design for young children. We specifically target children aged 4 to 6 years old because of societal trend of early exposure to touch screen devices for children. This study compares three types of material (felt, wood, and plastic) for tangibles along with touch-based interaction and how the differences implicate child art creation on an iPad application. Through mixed-methods analysis of twenty-six participants’ experiences, we use data sources of video recordings, drawings, and interview. The main findings looked at the relationship in hardness between digital and physical tools as well as the differences of interactions when using finger-based and stylus pens for physical drawing tools. The findings from this study may be applied to design tangible user interfaces for young children.
