Gifs for learning

It hasn’t really until I have been on Instagram for a while now that I have realised just how powerful animated gifs are as teaching and learning aids. A well made animated gif can show you easily how to do something and it plays non stop until you get it. Repetition is part of brain based learning and so it should not be surprising that animated gifs are so effective in teaching someone how to do what you can do or understand what you understand. Little videos achieve the same thing. They are effective because they are targeted, concise, precise and visual. As a learner you can just keep playing them until you really understand the concept or skill. Educational gifs has a nice selection so you can get started. Mashable also has a good selection to show how powerful animated gifs can be in an educational context.
