Importance of Visual Learning

Posted by Holger:

Inspired by Sam:

Dual Coding Theory, first coined by Allan Paivio, recognizes that learners absorb information more easily — and can better retrieve it later on — when they’re given both verbal and visual cues to ‘encode’ a concept in their minds. Dual coding has advanced our understanding of visual learning as a necessity rather than a nice-to-have, as even a simple icon or pictogram, when paired with a concept in writing, will ‘stick’ in a student’s mind far more effectively than the written concept alone. Consider the classic example of road signs — our highly visual brains will more quickly grasp a concept rendered pictographically, rather than strictly in writing.”
