What Is Visual Teaching?

Teaching is the process of disseminating knowledge to others. While there are many teaching approaches, using visuals have been proven to be more effective compared to other methods. Visuals make information easier to analyze and understand.

How to Teach Effectively with Visual Teaching Techniques?

  • When it comes to teaching, knowing your students and their needs is as important as knowing the subject matter. Spend time talking to them to understand the challenges they face and the help they need.
  • Prepare yourself before the class. Here you can use a lesson plan template to outline the teaching objectives and the steps.
  • Select different teaching methods according to the needs and characteristics of your students. Avoid sticking with one teaching technique.
  • Use visual teaching techniques such as graphic organizers, mind maps, storyboards, flowcharts to trigger the interest of students in the subject matter.
  • When using Creately to draw these diagrams, you have the ability to add images to them and customize them with colors to elaborate your point more effectively.
  • If everyone is not in the class, share the diagrams with absent students using a diagram share link. You can also collaborate with them in real-time.
  • You can download the diagrams and take print-outs to use in interactive activities as well. Get students to engage in developing the diagrams to help them remember better.
