Visual literacy by Tracey Butchart

  1. 1. “A picture is worth a 1000 words.” Arthur Brisbane, 1911
  2. 2. “The soul never thinks without a mental picture.” Aristotle, ~350B.C.
  3. 3. “If I can’t picture it, I can’t understand it.” Albert Einstein, 1954
  4. 4. “All of us are watchers – of television, of time clocks, of traffic on the freeway – but few of us are observers. Everyone is looking, not many are seeing.” Peter M. Leschak, 1992
  5. 5. “The signs are everywhere - if you can read them. The primary literacy of the 21st century will be visual: pictures, graphics, images of every kind. It's no longer enough to read and write. Our students must learn to process both words and pictures. They must be able to move gracefully and fluently between text and images, between literal and figurative worlds.” Lynnell Burmark, Learn to See, See to Learn, 2002
