In our technological age which revolves around the use of smartphones and other mobile devices, giving students physical materials from which they can learn facts, ideas, and concepts can be a challenge. Teachers are competing with social media updates that can keep students’ attention away from learning in the classroom. However, when it comes to making presentations, teachers can make an impact with the use of many different types of visual aids. At VariQuest, we help teachers teach students more effectively through the use of teaching and learning aids, including visual aid posters.
Types of Visual Aids
Visual aids include a wide range of items including slides, handouts, models, moving pictures, objects, visual aid posters, and more. Posters are one of the most effective types of visual aids for presenting information in an easy-to-understand, visual format for students.
During the time of COVID-19 these posters can be utilized more than ever to display to children and staff the importance of how to protect oneself during this adjusted school environment. One fantastic example is our “Stop the Spread” downloadable content poster found here.
The Benefits of Using Visual Aid Posters
Visual aid posters are able to help you reach your goals by emphasizing what you are actually speaking about in your presentation. Clear and easy-to-understand pictures on these posters can significantly increase the comprehension of students about the lesson being presented. They are effective tools for generating excitement, clarifying individual points, and reinforcing your overall message.
The use of these posters during a lesson can truly give reference points for students. One great example is our “Types of Rocks” downloadable content poster that could be utilized during a lesson on varieties and origins of the rocks themselves while adding a visual representation that the students can then apply out of school when they see one of these rocks. Find that content here.
With visual aid posters, you are able to combine words with images – a powerful combination to generate and maintain student attention and retention.
