  • ChrissiNerantzi for Carol: Is this ok? Chrissi is an experienced Academic Developer at the University of Salford. She is the Programme Leader of the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice which is offered to teachers in HE and leads to a teaching qualification for Higher Education. Her approach is experimental and she enjoys challenging and stretching her students so that they make new discoveries.Say at the beginning:I am not an expert in visual communication, visual literacy. I am just an experimenter who loves using images, artifacts etc for learning and teaching. I will share my experiences with you and would like to engage in a discussion with you about visual communication and learning. Not a monologue but a dialogueWrite on any slide, anytime!Add your comments, questions to the chat.Take the microphone and switch on the video so that we can see you too ;)

Visual literacy is an increasingly important skill and learning to think critically about images is an essential component of a 21st century education. Confronted with a different kind of source material–image rather than text–they are challenged to look at concepts and issues in a new way.
  • Word and images are constructions NOT passive recordings of realityexample: do we need to know a specific language to make sense of an image? quicker and richer ‘to read’ and image?

  • spatial intelligence“Blind populations provide an illustration of the distinction between the spatialintelligence and visual perception. A blind person can recognize shapes by an indirectmethod: running a hand along the object translates into length of time of movement,which in turn is translated into the size of the object. For the blind person, the perceptualsystem of the tactile modality parallels the visual modality in the seeing person. Theanalogy between the spatial reasoning of the blind and the linguistic reasoning of the deafis notable.”http://howardgardner01.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/in-a-nutshell-minh.pdfTEST http://www.bgfl.org/bgfl/custom/resources_ftp/client_ftp/ks3/ict/multiple_int/index.htm visualisation source http://www.silverspiral.org/index.php/home/item/81-using-multiple-intelligences-in-magick

  • Photovoices International is an innovative international program that provides cameras and photography training for people to document important issues in their lives like the state of the natural environment, what they value about traditional culture and to record community strengths and challenges. The Photovoices process--part documentary, part art, part storytelling--provides a way to hear villagers' unfiltered opinions and to learn from their expertise.  By using simple cameras, photographs and stories, people gain a visual voice at the table and a process to communicate indigenous knowledge and concerns from the grassroots to international organizations, government officials and other making plans for the future.  Perhaps most important, the pictures and stories provide people a way to reflect on their own lives and to talk together about what they want to protect and what they want to make better.

  • How could you incorporate images into your curriculum/courses activities and assessment?
  • Just read the story first before showing the pictures!The messiness of learningA jungle or...... a garden? Can it be both?Order to avoid chaos? Why?Can chaos be bad for us? In what way(s)?Self-organisation emerges. Can you see it? Can you feel it?What needs to happen to recognise this as a vital part for (more) learning?https://chrissinerantzi.wordpress.com/2011/10/14/the-messiness-of-learning-cmc11-mooc/

    16. 16. visual literacy (John Debes,1969)“Visual Literacy refers to a group of vision-competencies a humanbeing can develop by seeing and at the same time having andintegrating other sensory experiences. The development of thesecompetencies is fundamental to normal human learning. Whendeveloped, they enable a visually literate person to discriminate andinterpret the visible actions, objects, symbols, natural or man-made, that he encounters in his environment. Through the creativeuse of these competencies, he is able to communicate with others.Through the appreciative use of these competencies, he is able tocomprehend and enjoy the masterworks of visual communication.”Debes (1969b, 27)
