Visual thinking is a proven method in which ideas, concepts and other information are associated with images.
Helping learners think, plan, analyze and communicate are key challenges facing all educators.

Visually representing information aids students in generating meaning from the data that they have collected, leading to increased understanding of the topic.

Often visual methodologies are used to co-create and share knowledge. Visual thinking methodologies have been proven to increase understanding, improve retention and effectively communicate information.

Visual thinking is a proven method in which ideas, concepts and other information are associated with images.


Learners are better able to:
  • Clarify thoughts and think critically
  • Connect prior knowledge and concepts
  • Focus on meaning and identify misconceptions
  • Analyze, organize and group information
  • Make use of visual memory
  • Communicate visually

EXAMPLES: Knowledge nuggets, graphic organizers, concepts maps, webs and idea maps are some of the techniques used in visual learning.Want to find out how they can help in your next learning objective check us out.

<![CDATA[Scenario Learning 101]]>Wed, 12 Jul 2017 04:00:00 GMThttp://digi-quest.com/blog/scenario-learning-101
Let’s define…
Scenarios are situations learners are exposed to, to convey information or create learning paths.  

Ex: Airline Pilot - simulations
Learners are in the driver seat. In a scenario learners assist with storytelling.

We tell a story, stop, then allow learners to choose.
What do we do now? Choices - A, B, and C are considered as a variation of consequence.

The CONSEQUENCE provides or shares a knowledge
path for each option (branching).

                A= Left Button: stops left engine

                B= Center Button: enables auto pilot

                C= Right Button: stops right engine

Scenarios allow learners to play while being able to make mistakes.
Learners walk away from scenario based instruction with a higher sense of confirmed knowledge.

<![CDATA[Factors which help determine Course Length]]>Fri, 18 Nov 2016 00:19:13 GMThttp://digi-quest.com/blog/factors-which-help-determine-course-length

Make sure to test using a variety of learners to help calculate an average and accurate seat time


As you develop and create an e-learning or virtual course keep in mind these three things...


Audience -

Any time you develop learning content at the forefront you MUST keep the learner in mind. Consider their demographic, exposure to digitized content and frequency these can change outcomes drastically.

Slide Count -

Typically folks will reserve 1 min for each slide, however that is
influenced by whether or not slide(s) have additional layers, audio, video and or branching.

Interactive Usage  - 

Seat time for a course is also determined by how each learner will digest various types of content - like video, audio or games. Will you allow learners to skip content? or will learners be required to complete all areas?


Keep those 3 facts in mind so you can manage an accurate approximation for course length.
Then test, Test, TEST!
