Visual learning at Jumpstart

Top Jr. KG School | Jumpstart Preschool Bhosale Nagar

Our dynamic core team member, Ms Shruti Athara, talks about the benefits of Visual learning at Jumpstart.

What comes in your mind when I say the word ‘School’?

Honestly, for me it was just too many classrooms, students, a play area, a big blackboard in every class, colorful chalks and our class teachers.

Our teachers used to teach us, by writing all the syllabus on the board from the text and we copied the same in our notebooks.

Our only target was to make sure that our notes were complete and we had to learn whatever was written in it so that we could clear our examinations and score well.Sadly, this is how it has always been.

Fortunately, now the time has changed. The mission for children is not to score well in their semesters but to explore new surroundings, gain knowledge in a fun way, try something new daily and make studies more interesting and valuable.

One of the best ways is Visual learning in schools. If your child is one who is flicking through the leaves of a book and playing with shapes and letters. He may also display a high level of observation and often enjoy doodling and drawing.

Visual learning strategies such as graphic organizers, diagrams, outlines and more are being used in classrooms across paired with the brain’s capacity for images, visual learning strategies help students better understand and retain information.

The Advantages of Visual Learning:

  1. Help store information longer
  2. Make communication quicker and simpler
  3. Aid better comprehension
  4. Act as stimulators for emotions
  5. Drives motivation
  6. Unsuitable visuals equals unhappy learners

A team of neuroscientists from MIT has found that the human brain can process entire images that the eye sees for as little as 13 milliseconds — the first evidence of such rapid processing speed. That speed is far faster than the 100 milliseconds suggested by previous studies.
