From watching both videos, Toledo Museum of Art. Visual Literacy and Critical Thinking and Martin Scorsese on the importance of Visual Literacy, Uploaded by Edutopia. Filmaker, I found that I the video with Martin Scorsese provided a good perspective on visual literacy. From his experience and success in the film industry as a director, producer and screen writer, it has a more profound effect on the viewers of this video. I found many parts of the video interesting such as him emphasizing the importance on teaching visual literacy and critical thinking to young people. It is how we look at the movies we watch “through how ideas and emotions are expressed through a visual form” (Scorsese 3.30). I would recommend this to others because Scorsese not only discusses the importance in visual literacy and storytelling in films but also gives some interesting insight into the concepts behind his movies.
