Researches inform that more percentage of students are visually smart and love to draw and visualize but hardly any teacher has a good training in visual skills and drawing of visual symbols so as to make lessons boring for most students.
Drawing visuals, reading and interpreting picture, making charts, art work, sketching, painting are some of the skills teachers need to acquire through training but before that teacher educators need to acquire visual skills.
In an orientation programme of teacher-educators, no one could draw an animal properly. No one had ever drawn a visual on the blackboard ever since they became teacher-educators. They were hesitant to draw or paint. An experience of simple wavy-lines painting and curvy-lines painting (see inset picture) opened them up to play with shapes and colours.
Visual skills training material for teachers and teacher-educators needs to be developed and training courses to be implemented to make them visually smart first.
