Visual-thinking tools

Visual thinking is the use of images and text for understanding, creating, explaining, communicating, and problem solving. 

Visual thinking tools can facilitate learning across academic areas and benefit students of all ages and learning abilities. These tools can be used for: 

  • building background knowledge (linking of new ideas to previous knowledge)
  • constructing knowledge (connecting ideas and concepts to each other and to visuals)
  • fostering and supporting collaboration
  • creating a product (representing the conceptual structure of knowledge)
  • formative or summative assessment (to identify, monitor, and communicate student understanding).
