The Power of Image

As a publisher I have been facing a growing reality about the future. As a Baby Boomer, I have and will live the rest of my life in a text-driven world. “Reading is fundamental” is a phrase I have heard all my life. But as I observe the next generation’s behavior, I am stunned by the power of images and their impact on their learning processes. The evidence is growing that the next generation starts with an image and then moves to reading text.

Consider this: Children and young adults are bombarded with an overwhelming number of images everyday, and technology supports this image-dominant reality. We can connect to images from our mobile phones, TVs, computers.The power of image is a reality. A picture is now worth more than a thousand words.

Here is an example of the power of images: NavPress is excited about these innovative image-based resources. There will be more to come–hope you will stay tuned.

Thanks Mike for your foresight on the power of images!! Bringing the good news of Jesus and His kingdom must include images that reach into and deeply touch the soul of the next generations.

interesting that I just wrote about how we communicate visually by what we wear before we even say a word. Again, people are making judgment calls on visual content before we have a chance to begin a formal conversation.
