Jeffrey Jablonski, Ph.D.'s insight:

Our brains are wired to rapidly make sense of and remember visual input. Visualizations in the form of diagrams, charts, drawings, pictures, and a variety of other ways can help students understand complex information. A well-designed visual image can yield a much more powerful and memorable learning experience than a mere verbal or textual description.

 

[In this article] you’ll find resources for integrating visual thinking in your teaching. You’ll find ideas for enhancing your presentations and for incorporating visual thinking in your students’ in- and out-of-class activities.

Drawing in Class

I used to get in trouble for drawing in class. I, like many others, find it easier to listen when I'm drawing. This presentation explains how drawing became a strength for my note-taking, rather than a detraction, and gives you some steps to get started along that road too.

The Ten (and a half) Commandments of Visual Thinking - Dan Roam | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

Via Roberta Faulhaber
Jeffrey Jablonski, Ph.D.'s insight:

Visual thinking is the future of business problem solving.

Pictures help, but more than that it is the art of synthesizing the conversation/concepts... Even lines which can combine and contain ideas would help, even if there is no picture on the chart...
