This chapter explores the existing and potential possibilities of exchanging information through the means that exceed those relating only to a text. Discussion entails knowledge visualization and the verbal and nonverbal ways of communication in the physical and online settings. After giving some consideration to the ways we communicate, cognitive activities are discussed by examining notions of cognitive thinking, cognitive science, and cognitive learning. Then follow some remarks on cognitive learning with knowledge visualization, whether occurring in a classroom and online with the use of computer technology, carried out through the social networking, or conducted with the use of educational games. Descriptions of the visual/verbal approach to learning with communication media and a discussion about criticism and assessment with respect to digital art and graphics conclude the chapter.
