Building Belonging with Visuals

We are always asking ourselves how we can engage all of our learners. When we offer multiple entry points each learner can find their own pathway into the learning.  In particular, the use of visuals can play a big part in how information is processed. When we include visuals in our lessons, our content is supported, we enrich comprehension, and we enhance the learning and memory of the content.

We all need visuals in our life.
