do you think there should be more of visual learning or the traditional black board is better?

there are some cases where i felt that there should be more of visual learning, when i was a student i always thought that there should be visual education because it helps students to remember easily..

    Aug 2 2011: I like to teach in the way that Howard Gardner talks about using all the ways people are naturally talented to learn. I use a black board when needed, Power Points, models, hands on activities, work sheets, projects, music, drama and art. Basically anything I can get my students interested in that gives them the information. I try to use as many of them in any lesson that I can. Straight lecture is good for some people and for others they are mentally away. Videos like Bill Nye the Science Guy can be shown from the web and are fun to watch even for me as an adult. Videos connected with discussion are helpful for older students and then throw in a project or research paper and you really get the information home has been by experience. Use the web for just about every subject and you can find videos, lectures, pictures etc. Make it as fun and interactive as possible, ask questions that cannot be answered easily and let the students wrestle with them in class. I like to use a Zen Koan like" What is the sound of one hand clapping" It gets all kinds of idea flowing. Hope this helps some and is an encouragement for you
    Blessings

Blackboard , Whiteboard , Pictures , Newspapers, Magazines , On-Field, etc are kind of ways that can be used to make the learning process better . Variations are must or else students get bored and loose their interest .
