We are living in a technically improved world, where everything changed compared to previous days. Lots of changes happened in the educational fields that provide lots of advantages in the field also. New technologies improve the way of modern education. Visual learning style is one of the trendiest technologies in today's educational field. Rather than normal classroom teaching, they make use of visual technologies that is more helpful for students. These kinds of learning help students to catch and understand the complex concept quickly without any effort. At the same time, it is useful for teachers because no need to put their full effort to make understand the new concept to students. These kinds of learning simplify the learning complexity related to both teachers and students. This is the main reason that most of the teachers have started using visual learning style in educational field. It is important that teacher should be confident that this kind of visual learning style is beneficial option for their students. If students get any changes in their educational studies, there is no use of such kinds of effort of facilities. The main objective of these kinds of learning style is to help students to attain their curriculum objective.
Today most of the academic institute follows visual basis learning method because of the less complexity of learning. But using this technology has both advantages and disadvantages. With the usage of technologies in class rooms, we can find the gap between student and teacher relationship. Through visual learning method direct interaction between teachers and students decreases rapidly and a barrier appears between them. But today audio and visual learning style plays an important role in classroom. Before the visual learning procedure most of the educational institute follows audio learning method. We know that auditory learning is better than simple than written procedure. Students can catch the audio more than the written format. Instructors use the recorded audios for learning purposes rather than simply reading the content from text books. Using the micro phone, it make more comfortable for students to hear more clearly.
After the auditory learning method, the next progression happens with visual learning method. Visual learning replaces the black board teaching method by projectors. Teachers find that visual learning is more comfortable for students to grasp the ideas more easily and quickly. Today lots of improvement happened in visual learning method. It replace slide projector to power point presentation. Actually the purposes of both are same but with power point presentation, we can make it more understand the concept with the help of illustrations, chart, diagram etc. If visual learning include in normal learning, people get more interest to study and they will get a pictorial idea about the topic. Today most of the instructor including the video clips from internet, along with power point presentation to make understand their students more easily. But this visual learning style has lots of advantages and disadvantages.
Advantages of visual learning style:
Possible to catch the attention of students With visual learning method, it is possible to catch the attention of the students more easily. With visual effect student get more interest to study about the theory. So it is one of the best methods to catch the reader's attention more quickly.
Easy to understand and remember It is easier to understand something about with their pictorial effect rather than simple description. In many situations we forgot about the theory that we studied. But if a picture is stick in our mind, it is difficult to forget that easily. This is the basic principle of visual learning in educational life period.
Helps avoid mistakes It is one of the best methods to keep mistake at its minimum. When we used to read content about something, there is a chance to have a wrong concept about that. But with the help of visual learning method, chances of that misconception are least. It provides a good idea about the topic or thing through proper visual effect. So chances of mistakes or ambiguity are least with visual learning style.
Easier to explain with the help of visual effect We know that teachers are trying their maximum effort to express or share the knowledge with their students. But due to the poor way of expressing things, most students fail to get that more quickly. It is difficult for a teacher to share each and everything properly only with group of words. In this situation, it is one of the best methods for both teachers and students to teach and get ideas more easily.
Disadvantages of visual learning style:
Need good preparation Visual learning is one of the newest trends in this modern era. But it needs more talent and skill to manage and present using visual effects.
Require knowledge about new technologies Only technically skilled person can manage everything properly. Some technical knowledge require to present classes using visual effects. So before they need proper training that how to handle the classes using visual learning style.
