    It is said that “a picture is worth a thousand words” and nowhere is this more applicable than when trying to teach complex concepts. A graphical depiction can often convey an idea better, and quicker, than a whole bunch of words. This is because our brains are mainly image processors, not word processors; the part of our brain that processes words is actually very small in comparison to the part that processes visual information. Therefore visual cues help us to… View this post
