Summary
COI synopsis: Visual aids can help all forms of learning, from teaching the right foods for a healthy diet to explaining the complicated structure of the oxygen atom. Miss Corredoira from Uruguay, on a special teachers’ course at London’s Overseas Visual Aids Centre, sees how stick-on figures in felt can simplify the teaching of languages. Films and filmstrips are popular instructional aids, and if there is no electricity to run a projector an oil lamp and a lens will do the job just as well. The training that the teachers receive at the Centre will be put to good use in classrooms in all corners of the world.
