Image Quiz: Teaching plant ID on the computer and with games.
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. 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. Poison Ivy is a card game based on the same cognitive principles as Image Quiz. It is designed to teach plant recognition in 4-12 grade, and is fun to play.
