A short introduction to diagrams


There’s a link below to the 4-page section on diagrams that I contributed to Oliver Caviglioli’s 2019 book Dual Coding with Teachers.

In it, I look at:

  • what diagrams are
  • how they can be used
  • the different ways elements and relationships can be represented in diagrams
  • some diagram archetypes
  • a process for creating diagrams
  • some tips for creating diagrams.
