Learning is the flow that continues throughout the life. The 40% is visual whatever we learn since we open up our eyes. Our mind helps us a lot in this visual learning process: learn -> draw -> make it happen. In this learning process, there is no age limit and no qualification is required. The only requirement is the personal motivation to know and overcome the barrier.
In this current age of technology and high-speed lifestyle, visual approaches work much better for learning. And it is easier too to learn any new skill at any age with the visual supports. Since childhood we get tired of hearing “read more”, “write more” “note down the class lectures” and bla bla bla . . . its time to go for something different.
Being in the digital marketing field for a long time the understanding is developed that graphic design, to be more precisely the Infographics are the most supportive medium for visual learning. In fact, Infographic (or can say any graphic presentation) is the bridge between the eye and every object or data set.
Let’s see how visual learning is useful and essential –
Since the evaluation humanity, use of pictures to communicate with each other had been started and is in continuation till the present time. From prehistoric era to modern digital era human beings have developed their visual communication as per their need and demand. Information design is the core tool of communication of the corporates. The big houses make their complex, standalone texts appealing through the features of the graphic elements. Infographics, as well as Info Videos, are the perfect promotional tool for any business. A good script, technically transformed into an impressive design or video (with or without voice) can explain the business, service or the process in a very simple and interesting way.
As a visual learning tool Infographics include information, data, knowledge, and even a story. The medium is very supportive in many ways like those are shareable, printable, and can also be used as newsletters. Once an Infographic is uploaded on the web, there is no chance it can be lost. Thus Infographics are accessible at any point of time and anywhere.
Infographics or any other format of the visual medium are most beneficial for the aged and those who are not literate up to the mark. In some part of Asia and African countries where a certain % of people are under the poverty line, are less educated and unaware about the ongoing changes and benefits that they are losing every day. In these circumstances, it is easier to make them understand through the visual process only. Visual learning materials include graphs, charts, colorful designs and icons, flowcharts and the processes are narrated in the story telling way.
Being a visual learning tool graphic designs combine both text and image and improve the learning style. Through graphs, charts, and tables business owners present complex information in a digestible format. Colorful graphic or iconography excites viewers and increases the level of trustworthiness towards the information source.
Visual learning made classroom education easy as well. Integrating visual and interactive study materials motivate students and inspire them to learn fast. Whether students are high school standard or kindergarten, visuals in colors, symbols, and directives encourage them to check and follow the instructions.
With that in mind, use designs and graphics wherever possible. Benefits are unlimited.
