DEN Spring Training begins with an Opening Keynote by DEN GURU Nancy Sharoff, MST, MS (Instructional Technology), SDA.

Do You See What I Mean? Visual Literacy in a Web 3.0 World!

DID YOU KNOW? Research at 3M Corporation concluded that we process visuals 60,000 times faster than text. DID YOU KNOW? The more visual the piece of information, the more likely our brains will be able to recall it; a phenomenon knows as Pictorial Superiority Effect. Join me as we explore the power of Web 3.0 as a means of engaging learners and enhancing learning through Visual Literacy. Learn specific strategies for locating visual media. We will look at various Web 3.0 applications which allow for the collection, presentation, and dissemination of such media. Is Visual Literacy important? You bet it is!

If you have any questions, please contact whitney_mihoulides@discovery.com

If, like me, you are wondering what Web 3.0 is (and want a common language before Nancy’s keynote), take a peek at this short video. If you want a good visual comparison of Web 1.0, 2,0 and 3.0, take a look at this post on Digital Inspiration.
