Visual Learning vs. Reading Text



The adage A picture is worth a thousand words refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image. It also aptly characterizes one of the main goals of visualization, namely making it possible to absorb large amounts of data quickly. It's the reason most files on Crystalinks have at least one photo and often video. From information received from a photo or image we move to digital learning ... the next step.

I'm a visual learner who has found that a surprising number of other people have similar programming. Along the way I also discovered that people want to see the message quickly, in the first 30 seconds, then move on. The human race is in a hurry to ... learn, heal, find purpose and the things that sit in our subconscious minds which we quest to understand and remember.

I love augmented reality as it takes consciousness one step closer to understanding the acceleration of the hologram. Watching a video of someone explaining the illusion of our hologram is far more effective than reading about it. We are moving to the next level ... observing the grids directly and how quickly they change. It's part of the accelerating progression of consciousness. This encompasses the way we teach.

  Augmented Reality's Next Frontier Is Real-World Search   Wired - June 19, 2014
Social networks and platforms like Instagram, Pinterest, Snapchat and Facebook have all driven a cultural shift in the way we exchange information. An NYU study found that people retain close to 80 percent of information they consume through images versus just 10 percent of what they read. If we regularly consume rich content from the real world through our devices, we could learn, retain, and express our ideas and information more effectively.
