You only have to open a newspaper.....or social media application.... to be bombarded with graphical information. Are our students being equipped to deal with this information overload? This session will focus on how information presented in graphicla forms provides teachers with an opportunity to inspire curiosity in their learners, deepen understanding and hook them into contexts within and beyond the curriculum.

Teaching Correlation
