Have you ever asked yourself how you learn what you learn? Think about it. How do you process information to retain knowledge for later use? There are 4 main types of learning styles:
Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic, Reading and Writing
Personally, I’m a visual learner. I need to see how it’s done so I can imitate it. I watch videos for the “how to.” Visual learners prefer looking at things to absorb the information rather than listening to it (auditory) or using their hands (kinesthetic). For example, a visual learner would learn to how to bake an Oreo and peanut butter pie by watching a video and listening to verbal ingredient-by-ingredient instructions as opposed to trying to read follow a recipe in a cookbook.
If you are an auditory learner, you learn by hearing and listening. You understand and remember things you’ve heard. You store information based on what you’ve heard and you have an easier time understanding spoken instructions rather than written ones.
Kinesthetic learners process information best through touch and movement. You prefer to take an active role in the learning process, versus sitting back and listening to information being presented in a lecture hall or a video.
Reading and Writing learners learn primarily by reading and writing. You prefer to learn information by reading notes, handouts and textbooks. You learners make use of dictionaries and other reference materials. You also takes lots of notes to go back and refer to when necessary!
I’m inviting you to join me on Tuesday, June 14th via Zoom to discover what type of learner you are. This free session is open to the general public. Stay tuned to this blog for more details.
Come Zoom with Auntie Bev.
