A list of unrelated facts will not result in a comprehensive comprehension in students or a transfer of knowledge from one context to another. The knowledge that is structured and linked to concepts to achieve mastery, including the capacity to conceptualize the concepts, will result in the transfer of knowledge and a more profound, long-term comprehension of what is being taught.
Visualization is one of the most effective teaching strategies for teachers of reading and literacy. Here is a lesson on how to use visualization to help students draw mental pictures from a part of the text that is being read aloud.
When choosing teaching, learning, and assessment methods, it is important to take theory into account along with an understanding of how students learn. Some of the key principles that emerge from understanding how students learn include:
• Learners learn differently from one another.
• Students will approach learning differently.
•The way we teach may change how students approach learning.
• Prior knowledge must be activated.
• Learners must be brought ‘engaged’ with the material they are learning for transformation and internalization to occur.
•Learners bring a wealth of experience to the classroom. They may be more engaged when offered a choice. They must be able to articulate their answers and respond to questions such as ‘Why?’.
•Learners who are new to a discipline may find it difficult to think appropriately (for example, modular programmers).
•Teachers need to know where learners are coming from to get the right level of understanding and correct any misunderstandings or gaps.
•Teachers and learners are equally responsible for the learning process.
•Cultural background and beliefs can have a significant impact on how learners behave, interpret, and understand.
•Feedback and discussion are essential for both the teacher and the learner to make sure that accommodations for new understanding are ‘right’.
•Conversation in a small group can also be a powerful source of learning.

The survey solicited responses from a global perspective, with the vast majority of responses originating from the European Union, particularly universities in the EU, followed by a significant number of responses from North American and Asian countries. Altogether, 324 responses were received between March and May 2014, with 182 responses fully completed and 142 responses incomplete, the latter of which were not incorporated into the analysis.

In conclusion, visualization can be a highly effective tool in the teaching of reading and literacy, as it can assist students in forming mental images from the read aloud material. To foster successful teaching and learning, educational theory should be taken into account, as well as an understanding of how students learn. Fundamental principles of visualization include the recognition of individual learning styles, the activation of pre-existing knowledge, the involvement of students in the learning process, and the importance of communicating, providing feedback, and engaging teachers and learners in dialogue to facilitate the accommodation of new insights.
