Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) training

This month, the Building Insights through Observation team attended Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) training. The training provided the team with an introduction to the VTS method of facilitating art observation. Building Insights through Observation will be exploring how these techniques can be used to help students make meaning from complex data representations.

The VTS method is designed to (among other things):

  • Support educators in building collaborative, reflective learning communities that respect and celebrate diverse viewpoints, individual experience, and learning styles
  • Shift education practice and transform classrooms to be learner centered, inclusive, and relevant
  • Increase critical thinking, visual literacy, communication & collaboration skills for all learners
