Visual learning and outlining in the classroom

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. Research tells us that the majority of students in a regular classroom need to see information in order to learn it. 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. Visual learning helps students organize and analyze information Students can use diagrams and plots to display large amounts of information in ways that are easy to understand and help reveal relationships and patterns. Visual learning helps students integrate new knowledge According to research, students better remember information when it is represented and learned both visually and verbally.
