About the Author

Jesse Berg, MSIT, M.Ed. is an accomplished teacher, professional coach, instructional technologist, and educational speaker. Berg s mission is to improve teaching and learning through visual thinking strategies that make complex cognitive tasks, like reading, writing, and critical thinking, easier to do.
Throughout his career, Berg has explored how visual thinking such as mapping ideas and modeling mathematics helps learners to harness their creativity, gain deeper understanding, and reach their intellectual potential.
Berg s experience consulting for public, private, suburban, urban, parochial, and charter schools around the country, and as a teacher and sports coach, informs his high-energy, hands-on approach to professional learning in instructional technology that focuses on co-learning, collaboration, and practicality.
He lives with his wife and two children in Philadelphia."

Reviews

"Visual Leap" is truly brilliant! Jesse s innovative BOWL and LADLE technique to make SOUP, his ingenious Summary Man, and all of his practical strategies for visual inquiry and transformative note-taking, make the book irresistible. Linda Kreger Silverman, Ph.D., author of "Upside-Down Brilliance: The Visual-Spatial Learner," and director, Gifted Development Center
"Visual Leap" strategies can be a staple for any classroom teacher to help students learn to make connections and think critically. Jesse recently presented in my district and there were many aha moments as teachers saw how simple it could be to differentiate instruction and meet the challenges of the Common Core. Michael Coppotelli, Associate Superintendent of Schools, Archdiocese of New York
Since the day Jesse Berg walked into my classroom, his techniques and visual learning strategies have helped my students develop the confidence they needed to succeed. "Visual Leap" is innovative, intuitive, and courageous and will help many more students become fully invested as owners of their education. Desmond Kirton, School District of Philadelphia CTE teacher, recipient of the 2015 Lindback Award for Distinguished High School Teachers
Jesse Berg's book is a valuable addition to the much-needed topic of how to teach visual learners. It is excellently written and replete with great ideas and practical methods for teachers to use in class. Jeffrey Freed, M.A.T., author of "Right-Brained Children in a Left-Brained World: Unlocking the Potential of Your ADD Child"
These visual learning strategies are a genuinely revolutionary step forward for writing and thinking skills across the academic spectrum. I know this from personal experience because these methods helped me unsnarl a difficult paper I was working on. Now I use the mapping techniques Jesse Berg presents in "Visual Leap" to plan many of my lectures and articles. Michael Weingrad, PhD, Professor, Portland State University
Jesse played an integral part in my daughter's life. She has ADHD and auditory processing issues. Mr. Berg encouraged her when all others (including teachers) were telling her she would not go very far. She recently graduated from a top rated university is now working as a senior software engineer at a major corporation. "Visual Leap" will help many students realize that they too can put their minds to anything they want to do. Iris Roth, parent
I ve always had a hard time learning new things and concepts. But with mind mapping, and other techniques that I learned in the "Visual Leap" workshop, I can express the information I receive in a way that is natural for me. I always felt that I was slower than the other kids, that I was dumb. Now I feel like I can go to college. Thank you for teaching me how to learn. Karim Keita, high school student"
"Teacher and educational speaker Berg offers convincing evidence that the visual learning strategy of webbing is a useful pedagogical tool. Drawing upon his own struggles in school, Berg contends that visual learning is the best way to tap into the needs of both hemispheres of the brain so that substantial learning can happen."
