What is Texture

Describing Nature Through Visual Data
A general characteristic for a substance or a material. Texture exists all around us. It can be either actual (natural, invented, or manufactured) or simulated (made to look rough, smooth, hard or soft, or like a natural texture). Simulated textures are made to represent real textures such as a smooth arm or rough rock formation. But they are not actual textures, and if you touch the picture you feel only the paint, or the pen or pencil marks.

This chapter examines links between the developments in selected technologies and our ways of teaching and learning. The focus is on some domains that are developing especially fast. A postulate follows that including knowledge about developments in science and current tools into the school curricula requires immediate attention. Enhancing the curricula with information about dynamically developing branches of science would likely exert a profound effect on making informed, successful decisions about future careers of students. The following text is about a novel approach to visual way of learning and instruction about processes and products. The visual approach relates to learning about natural processes and the current ways we capture their essence. Learning about advances in science requires application of graphical ways of presentation; the use of internet and digital media by instructors, professionals, and students; and making knowledge visualization an integral part of the learning process.

The Texture of Inefficiently Self-Regulating ESL Systems
In Halliday and Hasan’s Cohesion in English (1976), “a text has texture, and this is what distinguishes it from something that is not a text. It derives this texture from that fact that it functions as a unity with respect to its environment” (p. 2). The texture of any text is constituted by the five major cohesive ties: those of reference, substitution, ellipsis, conjunction and lexis.
