Connection through emotions in an online environment takes some extra effort on everyone's part. For me, personal teaching stories help convey humor, empathy, along with the curriculum content.  


Having a lounge where folks can swap pictures of kids and pets might appeal to our brains limbic centers as well!

Developing trust and reciprocal awareness among virtual student teams is essential in effective group formation and performance - particularly in short-duration, high-stakes projects.

Why we need more visual texts in our teaching and learning

Why we need more visual texts in our teaching and learning | college and career ready | 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.

As a visual learner myself, I love onto graphics, beginning with the dAiley ones posted NBC USA Today since its inception. 

Caleb Yap's curator insight, July 17, 2013 11:30 PM

really? more of these non-classical pedagogical methods?

Audrey's curator insight, August 29, 2013 2:53 PM

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.

Abreena Tompkins, instruction specialist at Surry Community College, has developed a brain-based online course design model based on a meta-analysis of more than 300 articles. In this study, she distilled the following elements of brain-based course design:

Low-risk, nonthreatening learning environment Challenging, real-life, authentic assessments Rhythms, patterns, and cycles Appropriate chunking or grouping Learning as orchestration rather than lecture or facilitation Appropriate level of novelty Appropriately timed breaks and learning periods Purposeful assessments Learning that addresses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners Active processing with mental models The use of universal examples, analogies, and parallel processing
