Kinesthetic learners VS. Visual learners

Being a visual teacher, I understand the effects of visual stimulation on brain development and utilize imagery where appropriate to enhance learning. I also utilize graphic, image-rich technologies in my teaching and understand the advantages and disadvantages of various visual technologies and try to use them appropriately. I avoid passive learning and bridge the gap between seeing and doing. I often create assignments and activities that allow students to develop and apply their visual information and handling skills.
