Effectiveness Of Visual Learning
Visualization in learning refers to the representation of concepts and topics in the form of images, infographics or animations. Visualization has numerous benefits in the learning process of the students.
Now, visualization is regarded as one of the most important parts of the education and many institutes have been integrating visualized learning in their course. Even the internet is flooded with visualized lessons on different topics.
In this article, some of the ways are discussed in which visualization makes learning more effective for the students.
- Increases Engagement
With visualization, engagement of the users’ increases. The visual representation through animations and games let the users keep being engaged with learning and not get bored. Topics like trigonometry, Ohm’s law, Faraday’s law, etc. can be taught in an easy way if visualization is used.
- Better Understanding
Visualization can help a student to understand the concepts better and have an in-depth understanding of the topics. With better understanding, students can easily get engaged with the topics and can tackle any question in the exams.
- Improves Memory Retention
One is more likely to remember a movie better than a plain text-based story. Visual data is more easily understood and retained than any other form of data. So, with visualized learning, students tend to retain the concepts for a longer period.
- Enhances Practical Relatability
Topics, especially from science and maths can be better understood if one can relate to the practical applications of the concepts. With visualization, showing practical relevances is possible and so, students can learn and understand complex science concepts easily. Topics, for example, Newton’s laws can be understood easily if the laws are related practically.
These were a few benefits that visualization has in the learning process. It can be said that visualization is one of the top benefits that technology has in the education sector. Slowly, the traditional educational modes are being replaced with technology-integrated learning. Now, the learning process has become more engaging, effective and student-friendly.
Visualization is now being used by most edutech companies to teach the students. Educational apps like BYJU’S, have been using 3D animations and other technologies like adaptive learning, gamification, etc. to provide a better learning experience to the students.
To know how BYJU’S is using visualization, subscribe to its YouTube channel and download the BYJU’S- The Learning App from the app store or play store.
