I think in pictures. Needless to say, I was quite surprised when I first heard that others thought with words. Then I realized even thoughts made up of words are pictures as well. We are visual creatures. Still, in the classroom we rely mostly on verbal communication backed by technology in the form of text based slideshows, and words on the board. This 20th century approach still in practice is not only outdated but is leaving behind a majority of learners to struggle on their own to internalize information. This approach was developed with technologies available in the 1900’s, primarily printed books, pencils, and paper. Today’s educators can no longer ignore multimedia technologies when looking to support all learners in the classroom. When exploring how to integrate more multimedia and visual communication methods in your classroom, consider these 3 ways to engage visual learners, and hopefully all learners.
