Visual/spatial intelligence is one of the many types of intelligence described in multiple intelligence theory. People with strong visual/spatial intelligence often have a strong visual memory and are artistic.

Example
A student with strong visual/spatial intelligence may respond well to organizing vocabulary using a mind-map or spidergram.

In the classroom
Teachers interested in developing visual/spatial intelligence try to use colours, pictures, diagrams and realia in their classes.
