Why is this Training Aid effective:
Participants can look at the photo/pictures an evaluate and form an opinion about if its appropriate or not. A picture tells a story just as well as words.
I’ve seen this used by another trainer, I would post several pictures and asked the group to write down what they saw in each picture, another group I would tell them to write a statement about the pictures.

Training aids are good but don’t over use because sometimes they can be less effective if you don’t balance.

Training aids allows participants to share situations, discuss and their experiences.

Participants can look back at their experiences in the classroom and see their mistakes in a photo or picture where they or having a problem.
The training aids are positive and negative photos /pictures to evaluate and discuss. It gives participants that are shy an opportunity to open up and share.
