(8:10 ET) Q2 From Vanderbilt University on Visual Thinking: “A well-designed visual image can yield a much more powerful and memorable learning experience than a mere verbal or textual description.” Via https://cft.vanderbilt.edu/guides-sub-pages/visual-thinking/ Why use visual thinking in the classroom or with colleagues?  #MasteryChat

(8:20 ET) Q3 There are so many visual thinking tools that we can use as educators: visual note-taking, sketch-noting, graffiti walls, and more! What have you tried with students or colleagues and how did it go?  #MasteryChat
