USE OF VISUAL MEMORY TO INCREASE EFFECTIVE LEARNING

Visual memory is a part of memory preserving some characteristics of our senses pertaining to visual experience. This kind of memory involves the ability to store and retrieve previously experienced visual sensations and perceptions when the stimuli that originally evoked them are no longer present. A student must be capable of making a vivid visual image in his mind of the stimulus, such as a word, and once that stimulus is removed, to be able to visualize or recall this image without assistance. Students who have not developed their visual memory skills cannot readily reproduce a sequence of visual stimuli. They frequently experience difficulty remembering the overall visual appearance of words or the letter sequence of words for reading and spelling.
Various researchers have stated that as much as eighty percent of all learning takes place through the eyes with visual memory existing as a crucial aspect of learning. Moreover, visual memory skill development can be taught.
In this research work we have evaluate the visual memory of our students and we have design a proposal consisting on flux diagrams and the end of each learning unit. Periodically, flux diagrams were presented during the class. Students were encouraged to answer a satisfaction test and they comment the utility of the flux diagrams. Evaluation of the retention ability was evaluated by usual evaluation methods.
