Tomato Talks: The Role of Mental Imagery in the Learning Process

Tomato Talks: The Role of Mental Imagery in the Learning Process

from 12.50

Wednesday 29th November 7.30pm-9.30pm

 

We are so pleased to announce that we have Olive Hickmott from Empowering Learning coming into the studio to deliver a fantastic talk all about the role of Mental Imagery in the Learning Process.

Learning happens through our senses: primarily visual, auditory, kinaesthetic, olfactory and gustatory. Our memory is linked to all of these senses and to be an effective learner we need to know how to optimally use these senses. We have visual skills by 6 weeks old, quickly learning how to create mental images of faces and toys without any training. As time goes by, children can develop strong visual learning skills, shown through exceptional creativity and an excellent imagination. But when stressed, they may be overwhelmed by uncontrollable mental images that destroy their ability to learn. This is when learning differences surface as learning difficulties. You will learn about the differences between teaching and learning, enabling everyone to understand the inner world of visual learning and its relevance to learning differences.

Please come and join her in an evening that will be filled with useful information and knowledge on how you can help support yourself and your child.
