According to multiple theories, our brains remember images much better than they remember text. We process images and text as a single entity, coding them together in a different place in the brain than where either images or words would be processed separately. Visual representations help you break down and understand complex information, increase your motivation to learn, and create more powerful and memorable learning experiences. Visual cues also help you stay more deeply engaged with the material.

Images can help simplify abstract concepts and make them easier to understand. They appeal to different learning styles and make the learning environment more interesting. Visuals also help you to connect information with your prior learning, which creates a foundation upon which you can build new knowledge.
