Back in 2017, I was interviewed by Elisheva Schwartz, a fabulous entrepreneur that hosts the Dyslexia Quest Podcast. It was a really fun and lively discussion that centered on the amazing benefits of mastering the metacognitive skill, visualization. There is a wealth of information in this podcast, so I hope you will take the time to listen.
What Does the Podcast Address:
- My own background and expertise.
- The benefits of visualization for reading, writing and other areas of academics.
- The ways visualization builds attention skills.
- My journey on expanding my own personal visualization abilities.

- Elisheva shares her own struggle utilizing visualization when she was a young student.

- How Can I Access This Podcast - The Secret Weapon to Unleashing Your Learning Potential:
Be sure to give the episode a thumbs up, and all comments are welcome. If you can share the podcast on social media too, that would be awesome!
I have found that the best way to teach visualization is through games and mindful discussions. To help with this process, I wrote a book entitled Mindful Visualization for Education. This 132 page downloadable document offers a review of the research, assessment tools, over twenty game-like activities and lesson suggestions in all the subject areas as well as for vocabulary development and listening. In addition, I offer two PowerPoint downloads that review the 10 core skills that need to be developed to optimize visualization abilities.
If you have any thoughts on visualization for learning, please post a comment! Also, if you have had success with visualization and learning, please share your experiences.
