This essay examines the relationships between teaching and visual media over the last several hundred years, particularly the concept of illusion. The teacher as magician or shaman is explored and compared to contemporary theories of instruction and the use of media such as television, films, and slides. The teacher as artist and alchemist is also discussed with reference to the visual heritage that characterizes their thinking on man and the universe. Revolutionary changes brought by the 20th Century to the sciences and the arts are considered in relation to the role of educators, and visual literacy is discussed in the context of art education and the role of corporations.
