Visual learning is a type of learning style in which students prefer to use images, graphics, colors and maps to communicate ideas and thoughts. Visual learners must see information in order to learn it. These learners are likely to have a photographic memory and may use color, tone and brightness to recall information. In class, visual learners will benefit from seeing diagrams drawn out, for example, on a chalkboard and in slideshows.
Visual learning refers to a mode of learning where students rely on graphic aids to remember and learn material. Visual learners can easily visualize objects, have a great sense of balance and alignment, are very color-oriented and can effortlessly envision imagery. Visual learners learn best by color-coding their notes, making to-do lists and using concept maps to organize their thoughts.
