Developing the visual competency of your students
Presented by Emma-Jayne Robinson
How can we make use of visuals in the English language classroom, and how can using images and video benefit our learners? Visual competency is the ability to decode and interpret visual information. In a world which communication is becoming increasingly image focused, our learners need to develop skills to help them make sense of the visual information that constantly surrounds them. This session explores the pedagogy underlying the use of images and video in the adult English language classroom, and will look at a variety of practical classroom activities to explore visual thinking strategies and help teachers to support learners in developing visual competency.
