Project No 4 Summarize visual thinkingIntroduction
To appraise and analyze “Visual Thinking” as a new approach to make studentsindependents and guides of their own learning, its main purpose is to combinestudents’ ideas in order to make them “visible”, “feasible” and “understandable” for every single learner who is trying to take advantage of their thoughts related to thetopics. Students are able to participate by providing the knowledge and applyingprevious experiences based on the contents to be taught by the instructor; however the main goal to achieve visual thinking in a traditional classroom is not to givestudents a full explanation about the theory or a guideline procedure to follow step bystep but to let students take ownership of their learning process while they apply their knowledge and or any other idea that can be inferred in the developed tasks.
