4MAT VISUAL EXPLORER: EDUCATORS EDITION
“The concept of literacy is not limited to things said; it extends to things represented. We need a wider ‘conception of mind’ in our classrooms; one where the role of vision to conception and imagination is understood, and where teachers use…sensory images to help their students form concepts.”
“Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.”
“The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.”
4MAT Visual Explorer: Educators Edition enriches student learning through the use of images.
Images play a significant role in cognitive understanding. The ability to picture an experience or idea is an important key to conceptual development.
This Resource for K-20 Educators includes a Teacher’s Guide, along with 306 visually striking and thought provoking images to challenge and inspire workshop participants. Images are provided on 3″ x 5″ cards and come housed in a convenient box. All images are printed on durable Card Stock to support ongoing use in workshop facilitation and training settings.
Price: $245 for Teachers’ Guide and set of 306 cards.
