Visual learning
The secret for remembering!!!
Knowledge Master is the tool for visual learning

Visual organization

 


Albero della conoscenza Visual learning is a method to teach thinking skills: the techniques based on visual learning – the graphical association of ideas, concepts, data, images, multimedia and other information to convey meaning – educate students to think with clarity, to process, organize, and prioritize new information. Diagrams reveal models, interrelationships and interdependencies and also stimulate creative and critical thinking.

Knowledge management strategies integrate with visual learning through map animation (animated paths with voice), categorization (with meaningful use of color and shape) and perception is stimulated with voice. This "intelligent" approach has a direct incidence in motivation and learning, transcending the usual visual experiences. Besides transferring basic information, and enabling learners to see relations, structures, models and features that otherwise wouldn't be evident, our strategies appeal to student's basic perceptive faculties and processes.


Knowledge Master integrates visual learning with knowledge management methods and strategies to ease understanding and the creation of new knowledge. With Knowledge Master students create and structure knowledge bases, concept maps, idea maps, webs and other graphic organizers, aided by state-of-the-art learning technology. A multilingual interface with customizable voice support makes KM suitable also for language learning and to ease learning of children that "learn some other way", like dyslexics, ADD, Asperger, those with working memory problems, etc. In KM voice is not only used to read text, but also as a cognitive service.

Teachers and students are increasingly engaged in using KM visual tools in learning activities

The more visual we make learning, so much more is the amount of matter that can be memorized intelligently.

Visualization, as a factor of intelligence, includes mental handling of spatial configurations, and is associated with creative thinking, critical thinking and conceptual problem solving.

 


Visual learning, the ability to extract meaning from images and to create meaningful visual forms, distils and directly evidences the essence of complex information. It plays an important role in concept abstracting.

Visual learning techniques help in the development of perception, and the students with attention problems will benefit from visualization.

Use color and shape in Knowledge Master as a language to convey meaning.

Visual learning techniques help students to:
punto elenco

Debug thinking and improve organization
Visual representation explicitly displays how concepts are related, even when there is a large quantity of them, privileging the understanding of new concepts. Knowledge Master enables the student to organize concepts meaningfully in similar groups, a method to categorize concepts and to improve  knowledge organization.

 

punto elenco

Reinforce understanding and retention.
The possibility of direct interaction with the maps and of "portraying" what they have learnt, the way they have learnt it, enables the students to acquire and internalize knowledge. It is important to observe how the students grow self-assured accordingly with the solidity of the acquired knowledge.

 

punto elenco

Integrate new knowledge .
Visual knowledge representation enables the student to ascertain the development of their own integrated understanding, something that other methods cannot offer. Integration occurs in the currently studied topic and is related to the student's previous knowledge as well.

 

punto elenco

Identify conceptual errors and misconceptions .
The student's map structure shows conceptual errors and the state of the student's perception, to prepare corrections on time, remedial solutions, mainly on core concepts.
