Effective Questioning. Free Photos for Education | Pics4Learning. Jonathan Klein: Photos that changed the world | TED Talk Subtitles and Transcript. In my industry,we believe that images can change the world.Okay, we're naive, we're bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.The truth is that we know that theimages themselves don't change the world,but we're also aware that, since the beginning of photography,images have provoked reactions in people,and those reactions have caused change to happen. So let's begin with a group of images.I'd be extremely surprisedif you didn't recognize many or most of them.They're best described as iconic:so iconic, perhaps, they're cliches.In fact, they're so well-knownthat you might even recognize themin a slightly or somewhat different form.

Tagxedo - Word Cloud with Styles. Category: Visual Spatial - Dyslexia Road. Michael's first roadblock came in the fall of first grade. He had performed poorly on his MAP reading test and when I asked his teacher what Michael should focus on at home, she answered "sight words. " I immediately went to the store and purchased the traditional box of Dolche sight word flashcards (pictured above). I was energized, motivated and confident we would conquer these sight words in no time and have his reading up to grade level. We began working the flashcards a few at a time.

The first day, Michael knew 4 words within 5 minutes. The second day, Michael knew 3 of the 4 words, so we reviewed them again. I am not one to give up so that night I scoured the internet searching for a tool that could help us. Keep in mind this is not a cure-all, end-all tool.

My introduction to visual spatial learning was a walk around the Melbourne zoo with Linda Silverman many years ago when she handed me an article she'd written and said "Here, you may be interested in this". Three months later I saw my first gifted visual spatial learner and I learned a lot from him.

Since then I have worked and studied with Linda in Denver and have seen over 400 such children and adults. Gifted visual spatial learners keep coming to see me and I am still learning. Dr Linda Silverman, the pioneer of the Visual Spatial Learner concept identifies two types of gifted visual spatial learners. The first is children identified as gifted who score extremely high on an IQ test because of their great ability both with tasks using visual spatial processing and those requiring auditory sequential thinking processes. This paper will concentrate on the second type of gifted visual spatial learner who is ? The visual spatial style appears to be hereditary.
