Visual learning and outlining in the classroom Visual thinking is a learning style where the learner better understands and retains information when ideas, words and concepts are associated with images.

Some common visual learning strategies include creating graphic organizers, diagramming, mind mapping, outlining and more. Visual learning helps students clarify their thoughts Students see how ideas are connected and realize how information can be grouped and organized. With visual learning, new concepts are more thoroughly and easily understood when they are linked to prior knowledge.
