a picture is worth a thousand words

The educational resource The Visual makes it super easy to find a word using a picture. This article, the first in a series of three dedicated to this online resource, aims to introduce a specific aspect of The Visual from a specific angle. For the first part, let’s focus on the basic concept of The Visual: the picture.

A world of discovery and exploration for students!

A targeted learning experience
Zoom in! The method proposed by The Visual focuses on exploration by allowing students to discover new words thanks to the highly detailed and unequivocal images. In the “marine mammals” category, for example, a click takes us to the detailed dolphin morphology sheet. Once there, you can click on each word to read its definition.
In-depth understanding
Many of the elements that make up our environment are invisible to our eyes: yet they exist and have names. Thanks to the many cross-sections available on The Visual, you have access to the complete composition of volcanoes, the human body, or even the different layers of the earth’s crust, with their names and definitions.
