How can you develop your learning style?
Everyone processes and learns new information in different ways. Learning styles are different approaches or ways of learning.
For visual learners
For Auditory learners
Study with a friend so you can talk about the information and HEAR it, too.
Recite out loud the information you want to remember several times.
Make your own tapes of important points you want to remember and listen to it repeatedly. This is especially useful for learning material for tests.
Set a goal for your assignments and verbalise them. Say your goals out loud each time you begin work on that particular assignment.
Write down things that you want to remember. You will remember them better that way.
When studying, take many notes and write down lots of details.
Use colour to highlight main ideas.
Where possible, use charts, maps, posters, films, videos, computer software, OHPs both to study from and to present your work (where appropriate).
For kinesthetic learners
To memorise, pace or walk around while reciting to yourself or using flashcards or notes.
When reading a short story or chapter in a book, try a whole-to-part approach. This means you should first scan the pictures, then read headings, then read the first and last paragraphs and try to get a feel for the book. You could also try skim-reading the chapter or short story backwards, paragraph-by-paragraph.
You might not study best while at a desk. Try lying on your stomach or back. Try studying while sitting in a comfortable lounge chair or on cushions or a bean bag.
Use coloured contruction paper to cover your desk or even decorate your area. Choose your favourite colour as this will help you focus. This technique is called colour grounding.
When learning new information, make task cards, flashcards, electro-boards, card games, floor games, etc. This will help you process the information.
Provide lots of interesting visual material in a variety of formats.
Make sure visual presentations are well-organized.
Make handouts and all other written work as visually appealing as possible, and easily read.
Make full use of a variety of technologies: computer, OHP, video camera, live video feeds/close circuit TV, photography, internet, etc.
Give your visual learners tasks related to visualizing things and ideas: making lists, posters,presentations, drawing pictures.
Allow tactile-kinesthetic students to take breaks during lessons and move around.
Encourage tactile-kinesthetic students to write down their own notes.
Encourage tactile-kinesthetic students to stand or move while reciting information or learning new material.
Incorporate multimedia resources (computer, video camera, OHP transparencies, photography camera, etc.) into programmes (teacher presentations and student presentations).
Include active forms of group work into your classes: running dictations, mime games, dance minute competition, etc.
Re-phrase points, questions. Vary speed, volume, pitch, as appropriate, to help create interesting aural textures.
Write down key points
or key words to help avoid confusion due to pronunciation.
ry learners are in a
n to hear well.
Incorporate multimedia applications utilizing sounds, music, or speech (use tape recorders, computer sound cards/recording applications, musical
If you use the visual style, you prefer using images, pictures, colors, and maps to organize information and communicate with others.
You can easily visualize objects, plans and outcomes in your mind's eye.
You also have a good spatial sense, which gives you a good sense of direction.
You can easily find your way around using maps, and you rarely get lost.
When you walk out of an elevator, you instinctively know which way to turn.
The visual learners remember 75% of what they read or see.
Demonstrations from the blackboard, diagrams, graphs and charts are all valuable tools for the visual learner.
visual learners will process the printed word before iconic (pictorial) information.
visual learners will process iconic (pictorial) information before reading the printed text.
The auditory learner MUST HEAR things for them to have the best chance of learning.
Only 30% of the general school-age population is auditory.
Generally, the auditory learner will remember 75% of what they hear in a lecture.
Using the auditory modality is the most difficult way to learn new material.
Learn best through a hands-on approach
Actively explore the physical world around them.
They may find it hard to sit still for long periods
They may become distracted by their need for activity and exploration.
