John and the Spatial Style of Learning


Proverbs 22:6 (NIV) - "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it."

Some students think in images and pictures. They are strong in visual and spatial organization when it comes to learning techniques. They love to visualize, draw, and design. They will become the artists and architects that we need. They are the Spatial learners.

Scripturally we see these learners in the Prophets and particularly John the Apostle. The book of Revelation is vivid with visual images. One cannot read this Apocraphal writing and not be visually affected. The points that John makes come from the images that he vividly paints.

Jesus often taught in visual images. He used parables to paint word pictures for His followers to see. His took Spiritual truths and painted upon the canvas of life images that would help us to come away seeing much more clearly the truths that He taught.

Consider your Spatial learners, and seek ways to include them in your instructional plans in the coming days.
