Abstract: We describe an approach to interactive visualisation of conditional probability within a Bayesian framework, developed to explore the potential for end-user probabilistic programming languages to be used in educational contexts. We are specifically interested in a setting where there are both educational challenges and distinctive approaches to probabilistic reasoning, working with the Ju|’hoan people who live around the town of Tsumkwe, in the Namibian region of the Kalahari.
