Visual-Spatial Intelligence

This type of intelligence deals with spatial judgment and the ability to visualize with the mind’s eye. Understanding takes place best when using or creating images, graphics. The information is translated into visual codes, spatial relationships, patterns and properties. This representational form allows students to interconnect ideas in relation to their spatial or temporal proximity, rather than using their logical or linguistic relationships. Students with this type of intelligence would draw pictures of the notions taught to them, while learning them.

These students usually assemble specific pieces of information into a bigger mental picture that offers visual clues. They recall ideas by imagining what they look like and by using visual mnemonics. They organize key ideas by using pictures or schematic maps, etc. ideas heard. Students with strong visual intelligence depend on visual thinking and are very imaginative, they like to draw, paint, or sculpt their ideas and often express their feelings and moods through art, but also enjoy to daydream, imagine and pretend.  They excel at reading diagrams and maps and enjoy solving mazes and jigsaw puzzles. The best instruments for working with them are movies, pictures, videos, charts, graphs, diagrams, graphic organizers, art activities, doodling, microscopes, computer graphics software and demonstrations using models and props.
