12. Using universal images to communicated thought transgresses language barriers and education.


This simple method is similar to applying children's teaching flash cards. Images are associated with color, shape, size, subject, category....etc. The net result is that children's retention level is far greater than listening to someone talk about the same subjects for an hour.

Learning with Pictures (Experience in Visual Education)

Generally speaking, pictures, paintings, and other visuals constitute the most effective, most plentiful, and least expensive teaching medium. It is also the medium that is least utilized. There are good school-useful pictures in abundance, almost anywhere you look. Yet, we as teachers are underutilizing this eminently useful resource.

The old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words may or may not be true. What is true, however, is that one appropriate picture can be a catalyst giving rise to the production of thousands of words and a multitude of creative and analytical thoughts.

Used appropriately and sequentially, pictures can not only illustrate a topic but also can provide the experience base children require in order to profit from reading and writing and from numerous other learning experiences.
