Why we need more visual texts in our teaching and learning

Why we need more visual texts in our teaching and learning | general reading | Scoop.it

"Found this fantastic infographic touting the success of infographics. Reading it (or more correctly, viewing it) immediately focused my thoughts on the use of visual texts in classrooms today...Unlike other infographics I link to on Mr G Online, I’m not going to discuss the specific points presented – that would be contradictory to the message of the infographic. I’ll let you get your own meaning from it. However, I am going to reflect on how it made me consider the use of visual texts in education."

You can absorb the visual faster and make sense of it in a holistic way; particularly if you spend time engaging with the information from different physical points of view. The information is embedded in the memory because the individual is encouraged to project their own meaning.  Having been directed to view educational materials, the learner can them be asked questions to test their understanding. 

 

Visual learning is necessary from a young age and is what home school sources learning is all about.

An obvious 'must have' for anybody who's open minded and curious about different kinds of music.

Carlos H's curator insight, November 4, 2013 4:29 PM

Music curation is in the future of music and allows producers and artist the oppotunity of touching their fan base. Wtih music curation you as an artist  allow your fans to tell you what they want to hear, this allows the industry to filter out  the one hit wonder who linger s around and makes way for the true talents to do what they love.

How Do Tech Tools Affect the Way Students Write?

How Do Tech Tools Affect the Way Students Write? | general reading | Scoop.it

Many teachers reported that students are more willing to offer feedback and advice to peers through a shared document. And they approach the writing process more fluidly. “I have seen students more willing to go back and revise or improve their work in order to provide more clarity when using digital tools than when they are writing it on paper,”
