There are a number of dimensions along which it is possible to classify the existing representations in the field of design for learning: the format and type of representations, the degree of formalism, the degree of abstraction, the purpose and focus of the representation and the producer/receiver of the representation itself.
Broadly speaking, representations may vary in format: there are textual representations (languages) and visual representations. Following Conole’s suggestion (2012), textual representations can use artificial language or natural language (narratives), while visual representations are basically in a graphical format (charts of graphs).
The table below illustrates some of the main dimensions along which it is possible to categorize design representations.
For a complete map of representations and languages see Pozzi & Persico (forthcoming).
