Students should create graphic representations, models, mental pictures, drawings, pictographs, and participate in kinesthetic activity in order to assimilate knowledge.
Use images to assist with comprehension – main ideas, details, inferences, analogies, metaphors.
Use a variety of organizers to construct mental images of what is being learned.
The “dual-coding” theory of information storage postulates that knowledge is stored in two forms—linguistic (words) and imagery (mental pictures).
