1 Linking e-learning Project 2012 Debbie Whitehead

2 A learning style is the way in which an individual learner tries to learn. It includes how they approach learning, experience learning and use the information.

3 How information is presented is often as important as what is said. It may determine whether it is understood at all.

4 Some students have a preferred learning style that is:  Visual - they learn mainly through seeing  Auditory - they learn mainly through hearing;  Kinaesthetic - they learn through doing

5 Some students will have a combination of two or sometimes all three of the learning styles. Students learning styles can change and develop and do not necessarily stay the same.

6 Learning styleDescription Effective learning methods Visualseeing and reading Visual learning style involves the use of seen or observed things, including pictures, diagrams, demonstrations, displays, handouts, films, flip-chart, etc. Auditorylistening and speaking Auditory learning style involves the transfer of information through listening: to the spoken word, of self or others, of sounds and noises.
