words, pictures, imagination in education

Very interesting issue, the relation between pictures and words as ways of making sense of the world. See here, for example, and a distinction between narrative (words) and non-narrative (pictures?) stories here. And yep, "imagination might be an important factor in being successful in the sciences". Think one could say "is" rather than "might", and extend the argument to other realms as well, as per below. Maybe, for many people, imagination is better engaged with/through pictures?
