Translating Information

Sometimes lots of text can be very overpowering for someone to read, and most of the time they will skim over the text to try and pick out the key words.

Graphic Facilitation is a great way for information, whether it be complex or basic, to be translated into images that are universal and can be understood by anyone.

Research has shown that we remember visual images much easier and better than words. Plus, using imagery can make learning more fun and interesting.

Picking out the right information

When translating information, it is always good to go through the text you are translating and highlight the key information. This will then make it easier to break down the paragraphs and translate in to easy reading graphics.
