Visualising is a highly effective method and can be used in many different settings. Visualisations are graphic depictions of situations or processes, respectively can complement what has been said or written.
In scientific literature, terms like sketch-noting or visual facilitation are often used. Visualising helps to anchor knowledge more easily in the brain than other methods and as a result, creates a wider basis for understanding.
Albert Einstein once stated, ‘If I cannot visualise then I cannot understand’.
And what Einstein said more than 50 years ago is more relevant today than ever before.
Visualisation is an instrument for learning and teaching as well as being an instrument to complement language. This is as useful and helpful in an international project like GANZerTAG as it is in work with children.
