Teacher Preparation for Visual Literacy
Research supports the importance and value of teaching components of visual literacy to preparatory teachers, but there is little evidence that this activity is intentionally addressed in many teacher education programs. This presentation offers an updated review of the research, a visual representation of the place visual literacy is (or could be) embedded into professional standards (such as NCATE and ISTE,) and education degree programs, and an opportunity to view and evaluate actual undergraduate student presentations from the perspective of visual literacy in the teacher training curriculum.
