Design Education Talks Ep. 50 – Kristina Lamour Sansone

We are born with a powerful integrated set of tools and capabilities that help us read the world. The visual is often dominant, critical, logical, relevant and hard-wired. Schooling, however, privileges text by closing the visual (images, colours, symbols, and typestyles) aspects of content off, disintegrating and reducing its status and impact. Graphic design is a field of expertise that integrates pictures and words, using words as visual expression. Graphic design can help students access content, demonstrate knowledge, and construct meaning using a broader set of tools. To help educators develop and enhance communication skills and deepen core content knowledge and trans-disciplinary understanding within their classroom, Design Instinct Learning has developed a research-based approach, integrating the natural sciences, engineering and graphic design. http://www.designeducator.com/
