I have long been aware of the power of illustrating ideas with pictures. My recent experience just reinforced my belief.
I sat in a lecture last weekend how to guide children to read picture books. The lecturer showed us a few amazing books such as Grandpa’s Soup by Eiko Kadono, Tico and the Golden Wings by Leo Lionni. The process of her illustrating details of the book and asking us questions is a process of us gaining greater understanding of the books and the ideas behind.
When we begin our great journey using videos to teach, maybe we can consider the power of many other formats to represent ideas also such as pictures.
