What can an emoji tell you at a glance? Lots! Bringing visual communication and learning into your classroom can be powerful for your students. Infographics, diagrams, icons, maps, timelines, visual journals—so many possibilities!
Visual Learning and Teaching (Free Spirit Press) by Susan Daniels, PhD, has lots of ideas to get you started. Want to win a copy? Submit a comment to our blog by October 10, 2018, and paste in an emoji to share how you’re feeling today. (Emojis not working? No worries, just let us know what emoji you would have pasted in and we’ll pretend it’s there!) One teacher will be randomly selected to win. 🙂
