Transcript of Our Preferences - Our Leadership



How does it affect our teaching?
To know how you learn helps identify the different forms in others since it impacts the way you teach. You usally teach the way you learn.
So with all this information.....
To think about:
If no one is learning, then we are not teaching. For a teacher to be teaching there
be a learner learning, otherwise, nothing is happening.
If you can't think of something to "do"... ask a kinesthetic!
Kinesthetic Learners:
- Do best when they are actively involved
- Have high energy levels
- Prefer to do rather than listen
- Lose much of what is said in a lecture
- Do well with role play
- Are naturally good at sports and dance
- Do best with a hands on approach to learning
- Have a hard time sitting and listening
You best remember things you learn through physical activities.
Active – always touching base
Meeting/Classroom – to the point
Problems – want to solve ASAP
Trial and Error – Let’s try this-no problem if it doesn’t work

Want to act immediately
May want to solve immediate problems and not focus on larger long range ones
Kinesthetic Leader/Teacher:
- Is a doer
- Generates action in a group
- Rarely uses memos, written details
- Gets a lot done quickly
- Shines in “emergencies”
-Kinesthetic Leaders – “Just do it”
Prefer to lead/teach by “Doing”

-Tactual Leaders-“Climate is everything”
Prefer to lead/teach by “Feeling”

-Visual Leaders –“What does it look like”?
Prefer to lead/teach by “Looking, showing”

-Auditory Leaders – “I hear you” “Do you hear me”?
Prefer to lead/teach by “listening” and “telling”
OMG! He can't stay still!!!
Sensory Styles:
Kinesthetic Leaders – “Just do it”
Prefer to lead/teach by “Doing”

Tactual Leaders-“Climate is everything”
Prefer to lead/teach by “Feeling”

Visual Leaders –“What does it look like”?
Prefer to lead/teach by “Looking, showing”

Auditory Leaders – “I hear you” “Do you hear me”?
Prefer to lead/teach by “listening” and “telling”
OMG! She won't stop talking!!
You tend to store memories as sounds.
Auditory Leader/Teacher
- Depends on talking and listening to learn what is going on.
- Others feel they can talk to this person.
- Makes decisions by talking things through
- Teaches/Leads through words
-Talking pros and cons
-Asking others for opinions
-Being sure something “sounds right”

-All “talk” and no “action”, intrusive
-Nothing written down..only spoken
-Pays attention to “talkers”
-Meetings can be lengthy
Auditory Learners:
- Learn by listening and talking aloud
- Like verbal instructions and lectures
- Enjoy discussion
- Notice and remember sounds
- Are good with words and language
- Often read to themselves as they study
- Need to work where it is quiet
- Are good at remembering what they hear
- Enjoy acting and being on stage
- Are not afraid to speak in class
OMG!!he's so picky, he notices every single detail!!
You tend to store memories in picture form.
Visual Learners:
-Like for the teacher to give demonstrations
-Recognize words by sight
-Take detailed notes
-Learn from diagrams, maps, and videos
-Have well developed imaginations
-They enjoy doodling and drawing
-They think primarily in pictures
-They visualize words in order to spell them
You tend to store memories as feelings, how they made you feel, how you felt at the moment.
Tactile Learners
-Are often easily distracted
-Are unable to learn in a primarily auditory or visual learning environment
-Has a preference for touching
-Memory is stimulated by feeling objects
-They learn most effectively when the learning process activates the sense of touch
-Facts, impressions, and concepts are learned and remembered because the brain and senses can associate the new learning with something experiences and this “feels” right.
OMG! She cries too much!!
A few sugestions...
To wrap it all up...
Lets remember to consider ALL learning styles when we are planning our lesson activities.
Think out of the box!
A little practice:
In your teams pick a subjet and any standard you wish.
Think of two activities where all learning styles will be targeted.
Visual Leader/Teacher:
- Prefers seeing information
- Appearances – how things look
- Take cues from what they see
- Often dresses well/visual
- Makes decisions based on what is observed
“Seeing” and deciding
Quiet and patient
Looks around
Meetings brief – handouts
May seem distant and uninvolved
Hard to remember conversations
Prefers notes rather than conversations
Use “visuals” as tools
- Approachable and easy going
- Empathetic and insightful
- Close to some /cordial to others
- Welcomes expression of feelings
- May be unable to confront others about behavior/mistakes

What is your learning preference??
How does your brain organize information?
Tactual Leader/Teacher
- Sensitive to others and their environment
- Gets the “feel” of a situation
- Concerned about others being comfortable and productive
- Willing to bring up “feelings” in discussions/meetings
Kinesthetic adaptations:
Provide hands-on experiences that encourage others to “do”…to take “action”
Auditory adaptations:
Discuss, listen, read, write notes, listen, listen, listen
Visual adaptations:
Point, highlight, model and demonstrate
Tactual adaptations:
Hook staff emotionally….and mean it. Climate!
