  • Various definitions for visual literacy. A visual learner uses images, graphs and other visual cues to better connect with concepts. I think of visual literacy as being able to create comprehension based on visual tools. Karen Sterling held a workshop at the Bucks County IU for the Gifted Day Conference in the fall. Her session was filled with samples and suggestions for visual literacy. I wanted to present some of her ideas, along with my own to encourage the use of visuals.
  • Julian Beever is an English chalk artist [1] who has been creating chalk drawings on pavement surfaces since the mid-1990s. He uses a projection technique called anamorphosis to create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the correct angle. It is often possible to position a person within the image as if they were interacting with the scene. Hyper linked him to online article from Blow The Scene.com. They have a gallery at the bottom to review his work. I did not find any images shared through CC to include.
