learning is one of the three (3) learning styles which refers to "learning through seeing". Visual learners are individuals who need to see the teacher's body language and facial expression to fully understand the content of a lesson. They tend to prefer sitting at the front of the classroom to avoid visual obstructions, example other students heads. The visual learners may think in pictures and learn best from visual displays including: diagrams, illustrated text books, overhead transparencies and projectors, videos, flipcharts and hand-outs. During a lecture or classroom discussion, visual learners often prefer to take detailed notes to absorb the information.
memory refers to the ability to retain information which is presented visually; may be short term memory, such as recalling information presented several seconds before; long term memory, such as recalling information presented more than a minute before; or sequential memory, such as recalling a series of information in proper order.
