Turning your favorite photo into puzzle pieces is a great way to “visualize the verbal”. Not only does it make short work of collecting or creating graphics for an ENTIRE training module, but there are a host of uses.
Use puzzle pieces as icons for bullet points. Then bring all your bullet points together in a single graphic! I took this eLearningStock.com image and let Big Huge Labs create the puzzle for free! Then, I clip the number of pieces I need, clean them up a little, and voila!
Or, make a quick and easy debriefing game with another freebie at flash-gear.com. This one creates a link to a neat little flash movie, where your learners can assemble the puzzle.
Here, give it a shot!
