In addition to sharing strategies, mobile apps, and tips for working with pictures, Melissa will share classroom examples and ways in which pictures can be used to help facilitate and demonstrate learning.

Research indicates that visual cues help us to better retrieve and remember information. The research outcomes on visual learning make complete sense when you consider that our brain is mainly an image processor as our sensory cortex is devoted to vision, not a word processor.

I love taking pictures in the classroom! My student know that I will take a quick picture of their creations. This gives me ideas to take the pics and go a step further to use them as a tool for my students!

Like how students can take ownership of their learning.
However, I was hoping to learn how I can use pictures/take pictures for progress monitoring.
