Teaching Tip #75

Teacherscribe’s Teaching Tip #75
The role of text.  Consider that up to 60% of your students don’t learn best through text and auditory systems.  They learn best through imagery and visuals.  This is not how we were hardwired as we grew up.  But it’s how Generation Z is wired.
“The role of text is to provide more details to something that was first experienced as an image or a video.” Understanding the Digital Generation  (37)
How do we try to teach students who learn in ways that we weren’t taught to teach?  How do we teach a generation of students who don’t learn as we did?

Well, that’s the challenge of teaching.
