Book Description :

"What’s going on in this picture?" With this one question and a carefully chosen work of art, teachers can start their students down a path toward deeper learning and other skills now encouraged by the Common Core State Standards. The Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) teaching method has been successfully implemented in schools, districts, and cultural institutions nationwide, including bilingual schools in California, West Orange Public Schools in New Jersey, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. It provides for open-ended yet highly structured discussions of visual art, and significantly increases students’ critical thinking, language, and literacy skills along the way. Philip Yenawine, former education director of New York’s Museum of Modern Art and cocreator of the VTS curriculum, writes engagingly about his years of experience with elementary school students in the classroom. He reveals how VTS was developed and demonstrates how teachers are using art—as well as poems, primary documents, and other visual artifacts—to increase a variety of skills, including writing, listening, and speaking, across a range of subjects. The book shows how VTS can be easily and effectively integrated into elementary classroom lessons in just ten hours of a school year to create learner-centered environments where students at all levels are involved in rich, absorbing discussions.

Book Description :

Visual Thinking brings the science of perception to the art of design. Designers increasingly need to present information in ways that aid their audience’s thinking process. Fortunately, results from the relatively new science of human visual perception provide valuable guidance. In this book, Colin Ware takes what we now know about perception, cognition, and attention and transforms it into concrete advice that designers can directly apply. He demonstrates how designs can be considered as tools for cognition – extensions of the viewer’s brain in much the same way that a hammer is an extension of the user’s hand. The book includes hundreds of examples, many in the form of integrated text and full-color diagrams. Experienced professional designers and students alike will learn how to maximize the power of the information tools they design for the people who use them. Presents visual thinking as a complex process that can be supported in every stage using specific design techniques Provides practical, task-oriented information for designers and software developers charged with design responsibilities Includes hundreds of examples, many in the form of integrated text and full-color diagrams Steeped in the principles of “active vision, which views graphic designs as cognitive tools

Book Description :

Visual Workplace/Visual Thinking (VWVT) was written by the acknowledged leading expert in workplace visuality. While other books touch upon visual workplace tools and practices, no other author has addressed the topic with the clarity and depth presented here. This is a seminal book, considered by many the definition of the field itself. First published by a small, independent press in 2005, the book won the prestigious Shingo Research Prize in the same year. It was then and remains the only book of its kind that describes the conceptual and practical foundation for workplace visuality, derived from dozens of hands-on implementations in some of the world’s best or most challenging companies. Written not by an academic, but by a hands-on practitioner who has worked for three decades with companies in various phases of visual transformation, the work carries the reader from the usual starting point of 5S through to the full power of the visual-lean® alliance. The book’s 11 chapters are in four sections. The first defines the visual workplace in relation to operational excellence, along with the eight building blocks of visual thinking. The next section, which targets the cultural conversion, is unexpectedly thrilling as it describes the genuine transformation of both company and employee which is at the heart of every visual conversion. Section 3 maps the logic and sequence of Dr. Galsworth’s 10-Doorway template as you learn about the visual side of 5S, visual standards, visual scheduling, visual material control, visual metrics, visual problem-solving, visual leadership as well as the visual machine® and visual-lean®office. The final section of VTVW places visual management within the visual continuum, shows you how to use the ten doorways to assess your own company, and concludes with a discussion of the visual-lean alliance, illustrated through a conversion case study. With over 25 full-color albums of visual solutions, 50+ graphs and charts, a detailed table of contents and in-depth Index, this 277-page book positions the technologies of the visual workplace as a premier improvement strategy on every company’s journey to operational excellence.

Book Description :

After the success of 2017's Visual Thinking, the author noticed that people enjoy discovering how easy it is to use drawings in business communication. But they still have no guide to satisfy their desire to tell a visual story in a very simple way. That is why the author has now written Visual Doing. This book will fulfil this desire, not by drilling deeper into the advice in the first book, but by "undeepening" Chapters 3 and 4. These chapters, both about drawing in visual business settings, are now broken down into ready-to-implement skills and tools. Visual Doing will improve your visual craftsmanship and broaden your skillset. It's a practical and accessible handbook for incorporating visual thinking into your daily business and communication. The author leads you through a new range of exercises, techniques and subjects which will help you to tell your own visual story. It takes a look at these subjects from different perspectives: "me as an individual", "we as a team" and "us as a company". It helps you to clarify complex information, pitch innovative strategies and foster a visual culture within your organisation. Learn how to show and share your ideas in a fun, clear and compelling way so you can inspire, engage and activate yourself and others.

Book Description :

Visual Thinking Strategies for Preschool shows how teachers can add visual thinking strategies (VTS) to their existing curriculum to encourage language, critical thinking, and social skills for children ages three to five. In this sequel to his popular book, Visual Thinking Strategies, author Philip Yenawine describes using art and other visual experiences to create powerful learner-centered environments for young children just beginning their formal school experience. Drawing on interviews with preschool teachers from public, private, and charter schools from around the country, Yenawine highlights the benefits of these discussions for students, including English language learners and students with special needs. "VTS masterfully encourages children to see, think, speak, and analyze--enhancing vocabulary and fostering creative thinking. Philip Yenawine provides a step-by-step guide on how to implement VTS in a classroom with young children, while providing an in-depth overview of the theory behind the method." --Keith Whitescarver, executive director, National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector "Visual Thinking Strategies for Preschool is a wonderful resource for early child educators! Drawing upon theorists from Piaget to Vygotsky, the methods of Montessori and Reggio Emilia, and the practices from early childhood classrooms across the country, Yenawine provides innovative strategies for creating environments rich in language and visual stimuli for teaching young children." --Martha Barry McKenna, university professor, director of Creativity Commons, Lesley University "One can learn much, with pleasure, from this book. Yenawine shows that children in preschool learn that images can be interpreted with simple strings of words which, as the children realize they are being listened to, become sentences describing their own interpretations, and thus their own stories." --Lella Gandini, US liaison for the dissemination of the Reggio Emilia Approach Philip Yenawine is a cofounder of Visual Understanding in Education, former director of education at the Museum of Modern Art, and a recipient of the National Art Education Association's Award for Distinguished Service.

Visual Workplace/Visual Thinking (VWVT) was written by the acknowledged leading expert in workplace visuality. Though other books touch upon visual workplace tools and practices, no other author has addressed the topic with the clarity and depth presented here. This is a seminal book, considered by many the definition of the field itself. Also unique to this book are the hundreds of photographic examples of actual visual solutions, in full color. Visual Workplace/Visual Thinking was self-published in 2005 through the author's company imprint Visual-Lean(R) Enterprise Press. It won the Shingo Research Prize the same year. It was then and remains the only book of its kind, describing a comprehensive visual workplace model derived from on-site research in some of the world's best and most challenging companies. This means that VWVT is written not by an academic but by a hands-on practitioner who has worked for more than three decades directly with companies in some phase of the journey to workplace visuality. This usually starts with 5S and then moves to visual standards, visual scheduling, visual material control, visual metrics, visual problem solving, visual leadership, visual machine(R), and the visual-lean(R)office--to name several of the segments of the book's main model, called The Ten Doorways. VWVT is also distinctive in offering over 200 full-color visual solutions and some 50 figures as supporting, illustrative material. After an introduction from Peter Dobbs, head of strategy at Rolls-Royce, and Sherrie Ford, US culture guru, the book's eight chapters unfold. Chapters 1-4 introduce the core concepts on which the model is based. The next three chapters map each part of the model. The eighth and concluding chapter describes the visual-lean(R) alliance, positioning the visual workplace as lean's powerful partner. This 224-page book also has a comprehensive index and a complete table of figures and photos.

Book Description :

Proofs without words (PWWs) are figures or diagrams that help the reader see why a particular mathematical statement is true, and how one might begin to formally prove it true. PWWs are not new, many date back to classical Greece, ancient China, and medieval Europe and the Middle East. PWWs have been regular features of the MAA journals Mathematics Magazine and The College Mathematics Journal for many years, and the MAA published the collections of PWWs Proofs Without Words: Exercises in Visual Thinking in 1993 and Proofs Without Words II: More Exercises in Visual Thinking in 2000. This book is the third such collection of PWWs.
