Learning is a total human experience. Research rarely reaches the grounds of the inner world of how students experience learning. Conventional methods using language suffer from the fact that the power relationship is too much in favour of the adults when young people are confronted with verbal argumentation. We have to find other possibilities to look into the “inner world” of schools from the children’s perspective without falling into the traps set by language. We use visuals to enhance children’s thinking and reflecting about their learning experiences. They help looking at learning from an analogic perspective. Visuals can be used in a multi-faceted way. Pictures with different ways of instructions, for example, can be used to get to know their reations to varying teaching methods. Learners have a very precise understanding of what is going on in classrooms. Our aim is to give them a suitable voice. In our paper we want to give a visual insight into the “interconnectedness” between places, rooms, areas and feelings, emotions, associations, which usually receive little attention in education – and even less in schooling, where teaching is mainly based on cognitive aspects of the curriculum. By presenting different approaches to making use of visuals in research we offer tools and methods on how to capture learning from a more holistic perspective.
