Departing the Text: Optical Illusions and their role in Education, Brain Training, and Visual Literacy

Departing the Text: Optical Illusions and their role in Education, Brain Training, and Visual Literacy | Motivating Student lear0ning | Scoop.it
Aside from being fun, optical illusions actually play a role in education and in visual literacy. They help illustrate that we see by learning to see. While our brains relay information taken in through our eyes, we learn to interpret what we see by recognizing and storing patterns we learn as we continuously interact with the world around us. These patterns enable us to identify faces, dangers, friends, directions, routes, and opportunities around us.
