Blog visual literacy

  1. 1. Visual Literacy Debbie Abilock, NoodleTools, Inc. 21st Century Learning Hong Kong (21CLHK) January 25, 2013
  2. 2. Two ways of knowing with different cognitive strategies • Written text is governed by the logic of time or temporal sequence whereas visual images are governed by spatiality, composition, and simultaneity (Kress, 2003). • In addition, meaning is derived from position in the temporal sequence of written text, whereas meaning is derived from the spatial relations or grammar of visual images (Kress & van Leeuwen, 1996).
  3. 3. From observing to constructing meaning What we notice What it might mean Implications
  4. 4. Read, understand, evaluate, create

"Good dog!" Snook whimpered against his friend's chest. He licked his chin. his ears. Abba Jacob laughed. "You silly. 'orriblt: littlt: beastie. you.
  9. 9. Questions for a “Picture Walk” • What catches your eye first? • How do the books' physical components relate to the content? • Where is the text located on the page? • How do the illustrations spreads, single-page images, collages, overlapping images, or portraits convey the content? • Where is the viewer positioned? • Do the images in the book change from beginning to end? • What is foregrounded, and what is included in the background? • What are the dominant colors? • How is white, or negative, space used? • Are there recurring image patterns (motifs, symbols)? • Are there elements that seem odd? • What is large? Why are certain elements larger than others?
  10. 10. Problems with “picture walks” “During a picture walk, the illustrations and design elements of a picture book are often reduced to serving as prompts for reading the written text, rather than as a system of meaning in their own right (Serafini & Ladd, 2008).” Serafini, Frank. "When Bad Things Happen to Good Books." Reading Teacher Dec.-Jan. 2011/ 2012: 238-41. Print.
  11. 11. The “grammar” of images • Elements – line, scale, shape, texture, patterns, light • Arrangement – balance, contrast, dominance /subordination, emphasis, movement, repetition, rhythm, variation, unity
  12. 12. The angle Where are [ you ] standing?

What effect does that have? • What can I infer about it? • Who created it? • For what purpose? Is it from something larger? • Who is the audience? • What’s the point of view (rhetorical stance)? • Does it use conventions of a genre (news, art, personal…)? What expectation do I have of this? • What’s the larger context (historical, cultural)? • What’s the message, theme or argument? • Why is it important?

  122. 122. Teaching Considerations “visual thinkers”* • They differ: memory, imagery, spatial abilities • Trouble translating visuals into words – may be reluctant or late talkers • Trouble ordering, relating, connecting pieces of information • Sensitivity to visual overload • Tendency toward false memories • Trouble retrieving information - but a visual cue can bring back a flood of knowledge Eide, Brock, and Fernette Eide. "Vivid Visual Thinkers - Blessings and Burdens." Eide Neurolearning Blog. Blogger, 27 Apr. 2007. Web. 25 Dec. 2010. < vivid-visual- thinkers-blessings-and.html>.
  123. 123. Strengths of visual thinkers* • Exceptional photographic recall • Can visually imagine, manipulate, and rotate objects in mind. • Cinematic thinking - potentially great for film- making or storytelling • Strong recall of visual details • Strengths in visual analysis, problem-solving, pattern recognition Eide, Brock, and Fernette Eide.

  124. 124. Visual Literacy New challenge… • European Americans find it easy to identify an object out of context while Asians more accurately detect changes in the background environment. (Cole & Packer 143) – Eye tracking shows differences between fixing on the focal object vs. background. (Cole & Packer 148) • Americans take photos in which faces are 35% larger than in East Asians’ photos. (Phillips 176-77) Cole, Michael, and Martin Packer. "Culture and Cognition."

  125. 125. Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education “Visual literacy is a set of abilities that enables an individual to effectively find, interpret, evaluate, use, and create images and visual media. Visual literacy skills equip a learner to understand and analyze the contextual, cultural, ethical, aesthetic, intellectual, and technical components involved in the production and use of visual materials. A visually literate individual is both a critical consumer of visual media and a competent contributor to a body of shared knowledge and culture.”
  126. 126. Teaching provocation… Visual literacy education should not begin with  reading [advertising] messages.  We need  children to understand that they (we) are  exploited workers in the living room factory,  employed by the media and paid by content.   Our “job” is to consume advertising.  ‐ Sut Jhally Jhally, Sut.
