Transcript of Multisensory Teaching

"Oral and written language should be taught together as much as possible. Illustrations in a book being read should be used to generate conversation, vocabulary and concepts that will relate to what is to be read. Material that is read can be translated into a verbal summary, a word web, a visual organizer, or a computer presentation." Multi-sensory learning takes advantage of the way our senses—hearing, sight, and touch, primarily—reinforce one another while learning. Each sense builds toward a more complete experience of a concept or idea. What Is It? How It Works The application of the multisensory method involves using at least two learning styles in a lesson plan or activity to stimulate learning and engage the student on multiple levels. “People generally remember 10% of what they read, 20% of what they hear, 30% of what they see, and 50% of what they see and hear.” - Laden Shams The principle of ‘dual coding states that information entering the system through multiple processing channels helps bypass the limited processing capabilities of each individual channel. This allows for a greater total of information to be processed when being spread across multiple senses. Research has indicated that multimodal processing reduces the cognitive load because information from different modalities can be more easily gathered into short-term memory and called up to build long-term representations Educational Studies in Psychology
