Description:

Visual Thinking has to do with the way a learner is able to create new concepts or thoughts through the visual neurobiological learning system. These thoughts or images do not use sound in processing. Therefore, educational practices shift their approaches to meet the learners' needs. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce the Neuro-Semantic Language Learning Theory (NsLLT) along with aligned methods for classroom teachers and support specialists. Beginning Level Workshop.

Key Concepts: Neuro-semantic Language Learning Theory, language strategies, learning systems, learning and thinking, language acquisition, intervention, process vs. products
Learner Objectives: 1) Describe two methods for working with those who have visual thinking; 2) Explain visual thinking; and 3) Explain the Neuro-Semantic Language Learning Theory (NsLLT).
