With the return of students to classrooms during this pandemic, 2020 has provided a robust amount of talking points and learning opportunities surrounding important topics such as race, inclusivity, safety and mental health. So how do you equip your teachers to address these topics with their students? How do you empower them to build substantial understanding and empathy towards their fellow classmates, neighbors and community members?
Using Visual Learning Tools to Jumpstart These Conversations
Students process information visually. In fact, it’s been determined that humans are 65% more likely to retain information if a visual aid is associated with the lesson. Now more than ever, visual aids can help enhance conversations around the importance of inclusivity amongst your students. Whether it’s discussing the difference in holidays celebrated by the student body, the importance of safe practices when it comes to mental health during a pandemic or how to empathize with others; posters, stickers, and cutouts that are created by educational tools such as poster makers, die cut machines and cold press laminators, help enhance learning because students can apply a visual image to these important discussions.
