Learning Styles and Preferences Figuring out how students learn best UNIT 1
Helping students to identify: Learning strengths Learning preferences Distinctive intelligence type
What do I need to know? The more you know about yourself and your abilities and the more you know about how you learn best, the better youll do in school. You must figure out what your teacher wants you to learn, and you must anticipate the questions that are likely to be asked on a test.
Personal Learning Modality What type of learner are you? What model of learning do you prefer?
Different Learning Modalities Auditory Visual Tactile Kinesthetic Experimental
Auditory Learners Assimilate information best by hearing it. Tips for studying and learning: Recite information aloud. Repeat information several times aloud. Focus on what teachers say during lectures and class discussions.
Visual Learners Assimilate information best by seeing it. Tips for studying and learning: Read and reread content written in texts and notes Use diagrams, illustrations, graphs, charts, and flashcards as study tools.
Tactile Learners Assimilate information best by touching and manipulating materials. Tips for studying and learning: Use hand-on manipulation of materials. Translate data into concrete representations (build or draw something that incorporates the information you need to learn).
Kinesthetic Learners Assimilate information best by linking the data with movement. Tips for studying and learning: Use physical movement to master academic content. Do walk-throughs and run-throughs to learn techniques, routines, and procedures.
Experimental Learners Assimilate information best through active participation. Tips for studying and learning: Use experimentation and trial and error. Take something apart to figure out how pieces fit together. Apply what you are learning (practice a foreign language by speaking with native speakers).
