Keitan Starks Using Your Eyes

  1. 1. Using your eyes. Showing how vision trumps all other senses. By keitan stacks
  2. 2. Visual learning • Vision is a powerful tool in the process of learning of new information. It is growing more and more popular in school systems everywhere. • But in order to understand visual learning, we must first understand how the eyes work.
  3. 3. The eyes • When eyes are open, individual patterns of light(tracks) passes through the pupil and though the retina. • It is then flipped and sent along the optic nerve • (Rodieck 1998)
  4. 4. __Tracks__ • These tracks take care of processing different aspects of what you see like color, movement, or and outline. • They then assemble into a “single visual impression” or image. (Medina 2009)
  5. 5. Continued… • The image is sent along the optic nerve, passing through the lateral ganiculate nucleus, and finally into the visual portion of the cerebral cortex. (Rodieck 1998) • This is where the image is deciphered and gives us a composite image.
  6. 6. Vision is our dominant sense. • Studies show that students remember very little of an oral report. 10% to be exact. • When an oral report adds pictures, there retention goes to 65%. Substantially higher. (Medina 2009) • This shows that being able to use our eyes is vital to the process of learning.
  7. 7. The experiment! • Dr. john medina shows just how much we depend on our sight. In an experiment with 54 professional wine taster, all glasses of white wine were diluted with odorless, tasteless red dye. (Andre 2008 and Medina 2009)
  8. 8. The results! • All 54 professionals, despite their experience, were fooled by the dye, describing all the glasses of white wine with red wine descriptions. (Andre 2008 and Medina 2009)
  9. 9. P.S.E. • This visual domination is called “pictorial superiority effect.” or P.S.E. • Using P.S.E. is wonderful for memory and retention. much better than just orally given information. So using it in class would increase learning efficiency. (Andre 2008)
  10. 10. P.S.E. the sequel • Knowledge cant just rely on a disconnected facts. (Curtis, D 2003). • If knowledge is connected to relatable concepts, the student can achieve a deeper understanding of the content. (Curtis, D 2003). • An example would be studying human anatomy with a diagram.
  11. 11. Technology • Video games, multimedia elements, video blogs, and interactive projects are becoming more and more popular, especially in school. (Deaux 2008). • Why is this?
  12. 12. More technology • The answer is because more people are realizing that the image aspect of the modern technology help people learn. (Deaux 2008). • Students are now able to visualize complicated concepts, thus increasing the longevity and depth of their knowledge. (Deaux 2008).
  13. 13. Conclusion • Light passing through the pupil and along the optic nerve to the visual cerebral cortex. This give us the image. • We can use this image to retain 55% more information than just orally given facts. • More and more schools are using visual and interactive technologies to help children learn. Helping them understand complicated concepts
