There are no such things as learning styles.
Different content benefits from different teaching modalities.
See "Teaching at Its Best," by Linda Nilson, Chapter 26, for the research.
*Not everyone, of course, since some learners have visual impairments.
People learn better when multiple modalities are used.
Visual thinking tools help everyone.*

"When the right visuals and words are used together, they create a third kind of experience, one that operates by unifying mind and emotion. That's why advertising works, or drama, or film—or the best presentations."

“Slides are slides. Documents are documents. They aren’t the same thing. Attempts to merge them result in what I call the ‘slideument.’”

Grading Visual Assignments?
"Steep Grades - Sharp Curves," Wolfgang Staudt, Flickr (CC)
Take a sticky note and a marker. Doodle an idea you have for a visual assignment you could use in the classroom. Post it to the board when you're done.
Your Turn!

"A lot of meaningful activity--struggling, processing, sense-making--is going on in the intermediate space between novice and expert."
