Eidetics

Eidetics

Goal Concept:

Strengthening visual recall.

Access Prior Knowledge:

Imagination Triggers:
Visualize, Recall, Imagine

New Information:

People who use visual memory recall are termed eidetic.
They tend to produce memory images that are highly detailed and vivid.
The eidetic can ‘see’ images by simply closing their eyes.
Students often use eidetic powers to pass exams.
During the exam, students ‘mentally open’ their notes or textbook and ‘see’ notes and diagrams.
Eidetic recall, however, does not guarantee a creative intellect.
One must practice creative imaging (imagination) with visual recall.

Apply Knowledge and Skills:


Challenge:
  1. Study the images on the grid above for one minute
  2. Look away or hide the image grid
  3. On a piece of paper draw the grid and the images in their correct positions.
  4. With a group, create a visual recall exercise of your own.
  5. Share your recall exercise with the community.
