Organize Information Using Visual Strategies

Reasons for using visual images

1. Many people are Visual Learners. They remember information by picturing it mentally. They remember pictures like diagrams or charts better than written information.

2. Even if you are not a Visual Learner, it helps to use different strategies to organize the same information.  The more ways you organize the information, the better you will remember it.

3. When you use different strategies to study the same material, the memories are stored in different parts of your brain. This makes it easier to retrieve the information and you will remember more details.

The five visual strategies here include

Learn with Diagrams     Learn with Concept Maps     Learn with Timelines
