Visual Memory Triggers for better student retention!

An essential part of the Doodle Note method! These visuals can be images that contain or represent an analogy that helps the student understand. They can also be graphics that blend text and pictures that stick in the students’ brains. It’s a perfect way to build a concept so that it really lasts in the long-term memory. Because of Dual Coding Theory, these special graphics that combine text and images will convert more easily into long-term memory.
