Keeping Up With...Visual Literacy | Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

Visual literacy is a “set of abilities that enables an individual to effectively find, interpret, evaluate, use, and create images and visual media.”[1] Visual literacy is an interdisciplinary concept and plays an important role across higher education – in the arts, humanities, science, technology, business, and more. Twenty-first century college students are expected to use and critique images in their academic work, and to produce visual materials that effectively communicate their research and scholarly activities. Visual literacy competence is essential for successful participation in this media-rich academic environment.

The Visual Linguist: Revisiting "visual language"

The Visual Linguist: Revisiting "visual language" | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

There are several ways that the term "visual language" can be used. Sometimes it is used to talk about general visual information or visual culture. It might be used as a broad term for visual culture, or for any combination of text and images. Some people use it to describe creative ways to use writing in pictorial ways.

Drawing on the Genius of Visual Thinking

Drawing on the Genius of Visual Thinking | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

by Jon Pearson — A picture is a thousand words. Actually, according to the original Chinese saying, a picture is ten thousand words. So, maybe thinking better visually can help us think better verbally. If I ask you, “What was your favorite birthday?” your brain goes on a picture search, not a text search. You’re not reading words but sifting (subliminally) through pictures at lightning speed until specific scenes and feelings pop up, which only then may be put into words

4 Lessons from my First Week of Learning How to Draw

4 Lessons from my First Week of Learning How to Draw | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

About a week ago I decided to reinvent my mission at the Skool of Life. I wanted to see if I could learn a new skill every 30 days. So I decided that I would teach myself how to draw. Needless to say my first few sketches were nothing to write home about. But I’ve made some progress.


As I expected, teaching myself how to draw has come with some valuable insights...

Tall Infographics Suck

Hallelujah! I hate long infographics as my eye and brain doesn't work like that and you can't print out less than 2 pages. Rally around 1 page infographics that you can stick on a wall or fill a screen without scrolling.  Thanks Jeff.  Let's start a movement!

Communicating visually is one of those skills many believe they can’t achieve. There are others on the interwebs and authors of books that have extensive examples, tutorials, and styles to help you get started. Even with great books like Dan Roam’s, Back of the Napkin and Mike Rohde’s book, The Sketchnote Handbook some still struggle with the idea of capturing what they see in their “mind’s eye” and transferring those concepts to paper.

40 maps that explain the world

40 maps that explain the world | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. So when we saw a post sweeping the Web titled “40 maps they didn’t teach you in school,” one of which happens to be a WorldViews original, I thought we might be able to contribute our own collection. Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they’re no less fascinating and easily understandable. A majority are original to this blog (see our full maps coverage here), with others from a variety of sources. I’ve included a link for further reading on close to every one.
