Why are DynEd’s graphics so simple?

You are here

In language learning, the most important input comes through your ears, not your eyes.  Visual input is supplemental to the auditory input your brain is primarily using to try to match patterns with known meaning.  DynEd uses simple, iconic graphics because they convey meaning more quickly using less cognitive load than other, more distracting types of images, such as photos, animations, or video, allowing more focus on the sound.
