“Again and again…creative minds explain their creative thought generation in terms of visual imagery and their reliance on mental images as springboards for extending their understanding well beyond the parameters of verbal language.”Ann Barry Boston College

visual literacy activity
Visual Literacy Activity

Visual literacy is “the ability to find meaning in imagery. It involves a set of skills ranging from simple identification (naming what one sees) to complex interpretation on contextual, metaphoric and philosophical levels.

Many aspects of cognition are called upon, such as personal association, questioning, speculating, analyzing, fact-finding, and categorizing. Objective understanding is the premise of much of this literacy, but subjective and affective aspects of knowing are equally important."

Philip Yenawine, (1997) “Thoughts on Visual Literacy”

exploration activity
Exploration Activity
  • Take ten minutes to explore links and find four that interest you.
  • In the next ten minutes, talk with a partner at your table about these four links, discussing how you might use the link in a course.
  • We will take a few minutes to hear about some of your discussions.
  • Optional: use the course planning sheet in your folder to record ideas for using visuals to meet learning objectives.
