VISUAL MEDIA LEARNING
Vision Trumps All Other Senses
We are incredible at remembering pictures. Hear a piece of information, and three days later you’ll remember 10% of it. Add a picture and you’ll remember 65%. Professionals everywhere need to know about the incredible inefficiency of text-based information and the incredible effects of images.
Due to the impact of visuals on our memory, on our emotions, on our motivations, and priorities, students can become very engaged with what they are learning through visuals. We can stimulate both critical thinking and creative thinking through images and other visual aids.
Questioning is the most important device of teaching. The teacher keeps in close touch with his/her class by means of questioning. The teaching- learning process becomes effective, when knowledge is given and shares in the class; through questioning. The teacher can know the amount of knowledge acquired by the students with the help of questioning. It helps the child to keep him alert and attentive. It helps to encourage thought and thus stimulates curiosity. Questions are asked to fix the lesson clearly in the mind of the child and to know whether he/she is following the steps of the lesson or not.
