Visual learning is a learning style in which teaching is accomplished through the association of images and techniques with ideas, concepts, data and other information. Researchers have concluded that the method improves student performance when it comes to critical thinking, retention and comprehension. It works by organizing images and linking them to information in such a way that helps students make connections that they will recall later.
