Have you ever taken a quiz online to find out what “style of learner” you are?

Images and memory are strongly linked, and studies have shown that we remember pictures better than words. When people hear a story through words alone three days later they'll remember 10 percent of it. However, if pictures are used along with the story, people will remember 65 percent! Use of visuals alongside text can be a fantastic tool for helping students retain and retrieve what they've learned.
