A summary will be posted shortly, but my comments on the article basically include:
- I really liked the fact that they added a methodology to intuitive design.
- Based upon their opening sentence in their conclusion, I think there’s this really big disconnect between engineering and design. “The most important general finding from these studies thus far has been the significance of representational languages to problem-solving ability.” For me, this is something that I thought everyone knew; however, based off of comments made in class, it’s clear that not everyone understood that making things visual is immensely important to problem-solving. It doesn’t necessarily have to pertain to visual drawings, but writing down code, writing a language, orally story-telling, they all help you work the kinks out of a project.
