Visual-spatial thinking in education

A tip of the hat to the Eide Neurolearning blog for an interesting post regarding visual-spatial (Gv) abilities in education, including a link to the National Academies Press, Learning to Think Spatially: GIS as a Support System in the K-12 Currriculum (2006).

I agree and would like to suggest that having the right tools in education are paramount to achieving the successful results desired. Critical life skills such as time management and goal setting are not taught enough in the K-12 Curriculum. To this end, I would like to recommend a new personal time management tool, the Bubble Planner. The non-linear/spatial design of the planner helps to manage life and time more effectively. The Bubble Planner is designed to capture tasks and ideas the same way that we think – in pictures. Please feel free to contact us at for additional information or visit our website at
