Seeing and recognizing

Information sheet:
The most important steps involved in seeing, perceiving, and recognizing visual information.


Brief summary of the most important facts:
· Reception of light signals
· Accommodation
· Seeing colors and brightness
· Image evaluation and pattern recognition
· Intelligent evaluation.

Information and ideas:
Apart from the physiological processes involved in seeing, the principal object is for students to recognize that our society is a visually oriented society.

Structure of the retina

Interactive graphic:
The parts of the retina can be labeled interactively.


An enlarged detail of the retina and its position in the human eye is displayed.
The graphic can be labeled interactively, either individually or in full. Manual labeling on the interactive whiteboard is also possible.

Structure of the eye - areas (matching exercise)

Interactive exercise:
The object of this exercise is to match the areas of the eye (outer, central, and inner layer) with their individual parts.


The areas of the eye can be matched using the mouse or manually.

Sense organ eye

Photo:
The eye as sense organ. It does not just differentiate between brightness and colour but also shape.

The eye is a ball that is located in a cavity in our skull. It consists mainly of the cornea, the lens and the retina.
The light perceived is beamed first of all by the lens. The retina with its sensory cells is at the back of the eye, this is where the image spots arrive from where they are transmitted via the optical nerve to the brain.
In the brain the whole image is then put together.

Information and ideas:
Explanation of how the eye works can be done, for example, by showing the students a camera:
lens: lens of the camera
retina: film
brain: development of the film

Relevant for teaching:
The human body
Structure and function of a sense organ
Reception of stimuli and processing of information
Senses discover the environment

The structure of the eye

Content package for interactive whiteboards:
Individual media related to the structure of the eye are compiled here in a meaningful didactic way for teaching using an interactive whiteboard.


All media in the content package for the interactive whiteboards are included in this self-extracting file. The content package can be started simply by clicking the ".exe" file.

The content package consists of the following media:
· 3 interactive graphics with which it is possible to work through the individual parts of the eye
· 2 interactive exercises on the parts and areas of the eye
· 2 simulations related to the seeing process and the accommodation of the eye
· 3 films about the structure of the eye, the image in the eye, visual defects
· 1 photo of an eye
· 1 information sheet on the seeing process for students
· 1 worksheet (with answer sheet).

Information and ideas:
Most of the media in content package are also available as individual media on the media portal.
