VIZISCIENCE is a science resource website that uses visuals to help students master tough science concepts.
Research shows when you read something, three days later you may only remember 10% of it. But if you add an image, you’re likely to remember 65% of it. Visuals are very powerful for learning and so we have packed the site full of illustrations, pictures, videos, and cartoons to help students and teachers.
Here are some of the strategies we use for helping you learn:
- Metaphors to connect abstract concepts to something you already know
- Diagrams, pictures & illustrations to cement the relationships between ideas
- Analogies to relate abstract concepts to real life experience
- The use of plain english to simplify complex ideas
We are aiming to provide visual learning resources for high school and entry level chemistry. Our materials are suitable for those wanting to learn and those wanting to teach.
You can also sign up for a free test-drive on our website. We are aiming to fully launch in September, 2016.
Teachers, please recommend our website to your students. You can use it as a resource for your teaching or for your students to do self study at home. If you want to subscribe as a school so your students can use it for free, please don’t hesitate to contact us for special subscription licenses.
