Abstract

Pictures, words, and patterns are the major tools of visual facilitation. Ever since, these powerful tools have been used live in discussions to support brainstorming, decision-making or teaching and learning processes. However, their utilization as a powerful instrument today is lacking of a theory that helps to understand conditions, possibilities and effects of visual interventions for effective communication. This article is a first step towards this direction by introducing the concept of four areas focusing craftsmanship, the corresponding intellectual process, the filter-effects and the impact on participants’ communication.
