Benjamin Franklin Using Visuals Effectively:  Using Visuals Effectively People grasp pictures more quickly than words. People who visualize information tend to remember things better. Give them a visual to associate with an important concept. Use a visual to condense complex information Use visuals to demonstrate a key concept If the visual is complicated or doesn’t clearly demonstrate a main point then it may be a distraction. Include labels, arrows, highlights to emphasize important parts of the visual Use visuals appropriately (Why am I using this?/ How does it enhance my information?) Examples:  Examples Did you notice the animated frog on the last screen? Was it distracting? Did it have anything to do with my content? The next two slides are on the concept of supply and demand. Which is easier to understand – Having the students read a paragraph of text? Or explaining the graph to the students? Slide38:  The supply-demand model is one of the fundamental concepts of economics. The price level of a good essentially is determined by the point at which quantity supplied equals quantity demand. This point is called equilibrium. If the quantity supplied is greater than the quantity demanded, then there is a surplus of goods. If the quantity supplied is less than the quantity demanded, the there is a shortage of goods. Slide39:  Slide40:  People remember:
