Visual Literacy

"Visual Literacy means the skills and learning needed to view visual and audio/visual materials skeptically, critically, and knowledgeably." — Brian Stonehill, Pomona College, Clairemont, California."

We are bombarded daily with visual data, both in print and electronically, and yet few of us have the learning and skills necessary to view these images skeptically, critically, and knowledgeably. The best way to teach visual literacy is to let students use technological tools to create their own images (and sound).
