Visual-verbal integration: The process by which learners combine visual and verbal knowledge into a coherent, flexible knowledge representation.

For example, in geometry, students need to connect the conceptual definition of a geometry principle (e.g., a verbal understanding of "Vertical Angles") with the visual diagram features that correspond to the relevant verbal knowledge (e.g., the visual instantiation of "Vertical Angles" in a problem diagram).

See also integration and coordination.
