VISUAL LITERACY IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE CLASSROOM 

Visual literacy skills play a vital role in enhancing learning and innovation. Why? Because the digital world is a visual world. To construct knowledge and to innovate, we must be able to visualize since most information is initially processed through our eyes. As STEAM specialist, Kate Mason (2016), argues visual literacy is a mode of thinking that helps us understand and navigate the world around us and is a vital tool in an increasingly visual and digital age. 

Visual literacy is multifaceted and develops from the way in which we observe our world visually (Gardner, 2011). Research supports the link between early development of visual-spatial abilities and STEAM innovation (Lubinski, 2010). Thinking and communicating visually can stimulate critical and creative thinking in any discipline. It is essential for conceptual understanding, spatial reasoning, ideating, rapid visualization, divergent thinking, problem solving and expressing ideas (Tytler, 2016).  A better understanding of visual literacy can help us to consider how we can make effective use of images in the classroom. 

Join us to these special sessions where we will look at three levels of visual literacy and how these relate to classroom teaching.  All sessions will be delivered via Zoom.
