In your projects, do you find students treat idea development - the most creative step - like a job?
Do you experience many students producing versions of the same idea?
Have you ever tried to turn your art or design room into a studio?
Or do you simply find that Visual Diaries are going home mostly empty at the end of each term?
You are not alone!
The Visual Diary Guide is a guide for your students to eliminate these problems. It is a game-changer in idea generation and student engagement. In doing so, it allows teachers to triple Visual Diary use, stop ideas being simple, achieve unheard levels of diversity in projects and settle students at the start of lessons or when they finish early.
Covering Year 7 to 10, it develops student creativity at a steady pace, complies with Critical and Creative Thinking (CCT) requirements while allowing the same method to be used across Visual Arts, Media Arts, Design and Technology subjects.

Is it a Visual Diary with a guide or a guide with a Visual Diary? Click to find out.
We'd like to think that the Visual Diary added to the guide in this edition is an add-on to the class Visual Diary. Yet, it can be used as a Visual Diary in its own right, if needed.
"Good Afternoon, just a quick email to say how much we are enjoying implementing the Visual Diary Guides with our Year 7 and 8 cohorts. Feedback has been soundly positive and the activities have been well received by staff and students."
