According to the Visual Teaching Alliance, approximately 65% of the population are visual learners; the brain processes visual information 60,000 times faster than text; visual aids in the classroom can improve learning by up to 400%.

With the advent of inexpensive, simple to operate digital cameras, teachers and librarians have the opportunity to involve students in activities that are engaging and enriching. "Eyes to See" will explore various ways to enhance curriculum through the use of digital images.

But people kept coming in! GAH!) we've got a twofer on our hand...so Skip Anvil and to view & experience the Eyes to See: Using Digital Images In The Classroom archive you'll need to fast forward the recording until timestamp - 1:52. - SEE BELOW
