What methods can be used to learn better with pictures?

    There are different methods that can be used to improve learning and remembering images, although not all methods work equally well for everyone. Everyone has individual preferences and learning styles, so you should experiment with different techniques and find out which are most effective.

    • Use visual aids: Use charts, graphs, infographics or other visual representations to present information. Visual aids can help simplify complex concepts and make them easier to understand.
    • Visualisation techniques: Try to visualise the information as you learn it. For example, imagine how the information is arranged in a picture or how it interacts. Consciously using visual imagery can make it easier to remember.
    • Mind maps: Create mind maps to organise and link information visually. Mind maps use colours, symbols and branching to present complex information in a clear way. This can aid understanding and support memory.
    • Association techniques: Link information to images that are personally meaningful or easy for you to remember. These visual associations can help you store the information in your memory and retrieve it later.
    • Spatial method (loci method): This technique uses the association of information with specific places in a familiar room. Imagine walking through this room and placing information at various prominent points. Later you can remember the information by imagining the locations.
    • Mnemonics: Mnemonics are memory strategies designed to help you remember information. They use pictures, stories, rhymes or other visual and linguistic elements to support memory.
