Lightning Talk: Better Learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When learning a new coding language or technique, the default learning style is linear and non-visual. When learning a concept like AJAX, or OOP the syntactical details and common bugs often narrow learning attention and cloud the high level concepts. Experience teaching in university and bootcamp settings has shown that many learners are more suited to a visual, non-linear approach. Diagrams, modeling and even interpretive acting can allow us to learn concepts quickly by employing our brains pattern recognition facilities, the cognition of broad concepts driving the learning of detail and the forming of new neural networks and correlation to existing knowledge. This talk will include presentation of visual learning techniques, specific examples and hands on practice.
