The COVID-19 Pandemic Explored, the DIIMSA Way
How do we instill new vocabulary to digital learners in this day and age? Do we teach this ability or do we provide opportunities for learners to “feel/live” vocabulary using engaging strategies that flow with their mindsets? Most individuals understand the power of visuals, but may not understand the consequences of not using them correctly as true context for understanding during learning experiences.
What is it about a visual scene that allows for unlimited potential in influencing learning situations? One key answer is that visuals allow limitless boundaries for situations to be explored and work as an individualized approach using the mind’s creativity. Regardless of the selected method, an effective way to solve the disconnect between vocabulary and the digital learner is to provide strategies that coincide with technological advances and tools that are used on a daily basis.
Join us as we use rich digital imagery from the COVID-19 pandemic to re-emphasize and uncover the importance of the mind’s eye to explore vocabulary and expand mindsets for excellence.
