Understanding visual thinking is important to good presentation design. Dan Roam has been championing this cause for the last several years and constructs brilliant presentations that utilize and explain why visual thinking is so fundamental to restructuring they way we teach students to present. Visual thinking is the basis of recoded information from ancient cave paintings through hieroglyphs and written language. Visual communication and thinking in the classroom is a simple and basic tool for problem solving and cognitive thinking.
