Image Quiz: Teaching plant identification based on insights from cognitive psychology.
Image Quiz is a cross-platform computer program designed to efficiently teach plant identification. It does this by helping users become visual experts in species recognition. Unlike novices, experts are able to quickly recognize patterns. This allows chess masters to recognize chess configurations, and botanists to identify species from a glimpse out the window of a moving vehicle. Image Quiz helps students rapidly achieve this mastery by adapting techniques from cognitive psychology to the task of species recognition. It is designed to promote holistic processing, the visual processing mode used by experts.
