Slide Notes

Visuals play a powerful role in the experiences of humans. They add emotional context and relevancy to topics and were the very first method of communication and expression used by humans tens of thousands of years ago. Yet, in formalized educational contexts, images are rarely used to effectively support the way we learn. In today's digital society, images shared with open licenses permit educators to easily create stimulating, thought-provoking content to inspire, provoke, and transform the way learners see themselves and the world. Haiku Deck can facilitate that process. It is a teacher's friend.
