Visual aids have been promoted as an effective teaching tool by many educational theorists. Wilson (1967) stated that visual aids provide better understanding to the students and supports to the teachers for delivering lessons. As a teacher, I try to incorporate visual aids in to my lessons as much as possible because of their effectiveness. They can be used to introduce or conclude a topic, or simply to gain the students attention.

The YouTube video I have decided to use for this assignment is one that will introduce the topic of Business Finance. At the beginning of the lesson, I will show the video to the class to give them an idea of the process behind obtaining finance for a start-up business. The video starts off by stating the difficulty that start-up companies have with raising finance and suggests alternative sources of finance that one could obtain. After this the video talks about preparing a business plan and the importance of credit. The video is essentially a three minute overview on how to finance a start-up organisation.

Essentially, the video will be used to create a structure for the rest of the lesson. After watching the video, I can explain the different sources of finance that one can obtain and the complications that one will encounter by having “bad credit”. From here, we will explore the different sections of the business plan and the importance of it. By showing the video I can constantly refer to it throughout the lesson for example “In the video, she spoke about having clean credit…” This can then be the basis for starting a discussion in which we will talk about good and bad credit. I have also designed a…...

Visual Analysis

...desirable to the public. Specific strategies such as dominance, balance and contrasting are used to design these ads to captivate the targeted audience and influence future purchases. Dominance is key to gaining power and success, which is why it is used as a visual a strategy in advertising. The point of an ad is to capture the attention of a potential buyer, then influence them to purchase the product. Grabbing the attention of an audience is done with dominance in all the ads chosen. Beyoncé is used as the initial focal point in these ads, with sparkling skin and a metallic glow around her that draws the eye to the image. Naturally the eye is attracted to something that sparkles rather than a dull figure, which is why a gold or silver shimmer was casted over the advertisements. Each ad uses different elements of dominance as well as the sparkling image to catch the eye. In the first advertisement Beyoncé is the central figure with red lipstick and an extravagant up do. The centrality of the figure compiled with a vibrant red and angelic hairstyle dominates all other parts of the advertisement. At first glance the color red is always eye catching and because of the elegance surrounding that color the image has a strong visual appeal. That strong appeal will be what sticks to the memory of the individual that saw it. The second advertisement uses Beyoncé again as the main focus making her figure appear larger next to the product, drawing the eye in immediately. The......

...I have seen many paintings in my life, perhaps the most famous one was mona lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci which I have been seeing in cartoons and movies since my childhood, but that painting was very common so I decided to try something different for my visual essay. I was specifically interested in noir theme, and especially the era of 1930’s and 40’s when the Italian mafia had a major hold on New York being the most notorious criminals during the period. The most interesting feature of the noir theme is the stylized suits with the fedoras worn by most of the high class people at that time. I was searching the internet the other day when I came across this image. This is a painting by Edward Hopper, who was renowned due to his oil paintings at the time. And this painting describes a scene where there are three patrons and a waiter at a diner. There was a diner which inspired him to draw this painting at Greenwich Village, New York, and also the artist was born and residing there, due to which this particular diner was his choice of the subject. The artist’s main themes were to show American life during the 1940’s, while this painting was completed in 1942. In the above painting, there are no people walking around the streets, and this depicts that these are late night hours. The angle of the painting shows that the diner is located at the intersection of the streets. The patrons are wearing stylized suits and fedoras and the diner only sells cigars, which were very common......

...Hall HIV AIDS in Southeastern U.S United States Statistics show that the AIDS epidemic began in 1981. Since then 1.7 million Americans have been infected with HIV. A number of 583,298 U.S. citizens have died due to AIDS-related causes. 1.1 million Americans are living with HIV and don’t even know it. An estimated 21% of people living with HIV are undiagnosed. AIDS spread so fast that every 9.5 minutes; someone in the U.S. is infected with HIV. The leading cause of the spreading disease is said to be gay and bisexual men. Gay and bisexual men continue to spread the HIV infection. They are accounted for an estimated 53% of new HIV infections. Also, African-Americans and Latinos are affected by HIV and AIDS as well. However, Blacks are accounted for 45% of new HIV infections in 2006. There is 47% of Black living with the disease and they make up only 12% of the U.S. population. Latinos account for 17% of new infections. They comprise 15% of the U.S. population. Whites represent 35% of new infections and account for 66% of the total population (HIV/AIDS Facts). The AIDS case rate for African Americans is more than 9 times that of whites. Also the HIV rate is 7 times greater among blacks than whites.

Aids

... AIDS Trends AIDS is a disease that society has been concerned for almost two decades. Several institutions have tried to do the research to find the way to heal this disease. In addition, They are doing the experiment in the laboratory, also, the research to find some medicine for preventing and healing AIDS. The sources of concern are that demographic trends in AIDS cases are disturbing, and efforts must be made to prevent the disease from spreading in specific communities. The State Officials reporters of Durham addressed that AIDS is now the state’s number one killer African American males between the ages of 15 and 14 and the number two killer for African American females of the same age group. The most troubling aspects about the current trend is that females are being particularly hard hit. From many female AIDS cases, they have risen steadily since the late ‘80s, rising from representing 11 percent of all AIDS cases in 1987 to more than 19 percent in 1994. Now, African American women comprise more than 80 percent of the cumulative AIDS cases diagnosed for females. According to the deaths report during 1994 to the North Carolina Division of Vital Statistics for 15-44 year-olds, AIDS was the leading cause of death in 15-44 year-old in Buncombe, Durham, Mecklenburg, New Hanover, and Wilson counties. For 15-44 year-old males, AIDS was the second leading cause of death(626 of 3,943 deaths) for the state. For 15-44 year-old women, AIDS was the fifth leading cause......

Visual art is an expression of creativity, communication, and beauty. Many other forms of art also express creativity, but Visual art differentiates from these forms in that it also serves other purposes, such as communication and is left open to interpretation. The value of visual art goes beyond the price tag on it. Visual art has been valued by cultures for recording traditions. There are many influences on how visual art is interpreted. Visual Art Depending on the style or form, art can be appreciated by every viewer. “Art attracts us only by what it reveals of our most secret self.” (Godard, 2014). Within the brain, humans have two lobes, one controlling the left side of the body, the right lobe, which is considered to be the logic side, and one controlling the right side of the body, the left lobe, which is considered to be the creative side. With that being said, everyone has a creative side. Regardless of the ability to express creativity, everyone is influenced by it. Visual art is a general form of art that covers art that is physically seen, such as Paintings, Sculptures, and Photography. Human beings are visual beings, if someone says “big, black dog” we do not visualize the spelling of the words, but we conceive the physical attributes of a big, black dog in our mind.

...Abstract This paper was written to describe the impact of visual and hearing impairments on student’s academic achievement to teachers and other educators. Having knowledge of these impairments allows the teacher to better serve students with these impairments in the classroom. Hearing and Visual Impairments Hearing and visual impairments have a major impact on a person’s development and academic achievement. Hearing and seeing are critical to speech and language development, communication, and learning. The earlier in a person’s life that they develop or have these impairments, the more serious the development of the person will be effected. In the same manner, the earlier that the problem is identified and intervention begun, the less serious the impact on that person’s development may be (American Speech Language Hearing Association, 2011). Hearing Impairments Hearing impairments are defined as the decreased ability to hear and differentiate sounds. This can range from mild hearing loss to total deafness (March of Dimes, 2010). Humans are able to hear sounds through the brains relationship with the ear. The outer ear absorbs sound waves that travel through the eardrum. These sound waves are then transferred to the middle ear before entering the cochlea. The cochlea is the main receptor organ for hearing and works with inner ear canals that assist with balance to hear and register sounds to the brain. Before an educator can differentiate or modify lesson plans they......

... Discuss the role of pictures in the learning of speech or language skills among learners with a disability of your choice. What do you see as a limitation in the use of pictures in the learning of speech or language skills among learners in the classroom. Pictures and/or visual aid are and an important and commonly used method or technique used in the teaching of learners with communication disabilities especisally in the subgroup of speech and language skills. Most children with special educational needs tend to experiance difficulties and/or delays in the acquisition of these skills.One such group of learners with special educational needs affected are the individuals with Autism spectrum disorder. Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder which is characterized by impairments in communication and social interaction, and restricted, repetitive and stereotypic patterns of behaviour, interests, and activities (American Psychiatric Association (APA), 1994). It is a complex neurological disorder that affects the functioning of the brain. Often referred to as a spectrum disorder,meaning that the symptoms can be present in a variety of combinations, and can range from mild to severe, it usually affects multiple abilities while others remain in the norm (Bristol et al., 1996; Minshew, Sheeney, and Bauman, 1997) Expanding the communication skills of students with autism spectrum disorders is one of the greatest challenges for teachers and families.

Aids

...HIV/AIDS HIV/AIDS (Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) is a particular virus that can only infect humans. HIV weakens your immune system by destroying important cells that fight disease and infection. A deficient immune system does not have the ability to protect you without medication. The virus can only reproduce itself by taking over a cell in the body of its host. HIV is similar to other virus like the common cold or the flu; the big difference is that your body cannot rid the HIV virus like the flu. Once you have HIV, you have it for life. The virus invades yours cells, replicates itself and destroys the cell. Once you cells are destroyed it longer has the ability to defend itself. AIDS is the syndrome after you immune system has become deficient or basically stopped working. AIDS is a collection of symptoms and signs, rather than a single disease, because it is a complex illness with a wide range of complications and symptoms. Before addressing the virus, AIDS it is important to understand that HIV is the first stage of the disease and then as the disease becomes worse, it progresses into AIDS. HIV is not an airborne virus or a bacteria that can be transmitted in the water instead it is passed from person to person through bodily fluids. These bodily fluids can be anything from blood to vaginal secretions and there is currently not a vaccine to protect the public so being informed is key to protecting oneself from the virus.

Fink HSN/544 July 27, 2015 Kevin Hite Relationship Visual Aids An education process is more complex than talking to someone, telling them what you want them to learn about or learn how to do, and them knowing it or doing it.

Purpose The purpose or mission of the education is based upon the mission of the organization or institution in which the education is taking place. In a hospital setting, the educational purpose or mission is to assist the hospital staff in becoming the most knowledgeable staff to care for the patients in the organization.

...AIDS Introduction AIDS is growing by leaps and bounds in the United States. Millions of Americans have been affected by the virus from the ages of 25 and 45. AIDS is the fifth leading cause of death among persons between ages 25 and 44 in the United States, down from number one in 1995. To some people, AIDS is just another epidemic like the common cold and it will go away in time. The AIDS epidemic doesn’t affect everyone in society the same. AIDS is a global epidemic and has threatened the human health and development for many years. There are many ways to prevent the spread of AIDS such as abstinence, educating our youths and adults on AIDS prevention, and political support to find a cure. There are different views on the AIDS problem. One view is the Politicians who believe that people are responsible for their own sexuality; therefore, it’s their responsibility to educate themselves. Second are Christians who believe that religion acts as a deterrent to sexual activity which decreased pre-marital sex. Third are the group of Planned Parenthood and safe sex which believes that if they educate people on the use of contraceptives, it will help diminish pregnancy and the spread of AIDS. HIV and Aids in the United States by age and gender More than half a million people diagnosed with AIDS have died in the USA. Around two-thirds of these people did not live to the age of 45. In 2007, the age group 30-49 years accounted for an estimated 54% of HIV diagnoses, 63% of......

Visual Impairment

...Visual Impairment Introduction Vision challenge or impairment is when a person’s degree of seeing is very low and the affected person requires assistance in order to carry out daily routine. Significantly, for one to qualify as visually impaired there must be prove that a person cannot undertake duties by himself without necessary assistance. For a person to qualify as a visually challenged, there must be a prove that the affected eyes cannot be conventionally treated. Visual challenge cannot be corrected by surgery, refractive measures neither by medication and that is why it is termed as visual impairment. The most rampart causes of visual challenge are trauma, degenerative or congenital means and a variety of diseases. In the society, blindness is the term that is preferably used to describe a visually impaired per son. Low eyesight is generally revealed when the affected person cannot view a normal distance and walk by himself (Algozzine, 2006). The degree of impairment can also be revealed when a person cannot read some normal writings. This is to say that even with the assistance of contact magnifying glasses or even eyeglasses the victim cannot reveal the writings on a normal newspaper (Bailey & Hall, 1990). Hyperopic impairment is accrued with inability person to see objects in a close distance. Myopic impairment is quite the opposite of hyperopic whereby a victim cannot identify objects at close distance. All these vision challenges greatly obscure the affected......
