Benefit of Visuals

Theories are challenging for most students to learn. There are 100’s of names some of them relevant and some distant to the topic that is being studied. In early childhood we talk about Maslow and Vygotsky right next to Darwin and Pavlov. These theories are pretty easy to remember for most students because they include visuals. But Erikson and Piaget normally do not have a visual but instead just a plethora of words to remember in the correct sequence. Having students create a visual that helps them remember basics of the theory is a great way to encourage deeper learning and not remembering for the test.
