Visual Learners Take numerous detailed notes Tend to sit in the front Are usually neat and clean Often close their eyes to visualize or remember something Find something to watch if they are bored
Visual Learners Like to see what they are learning Benefit from illustrations and presentations that use color Are attracted to written or spoken language rich in imagery Prefer stimuli to be isolated from auditory and kinesthetic distraction Find passive surroundings ideal STRATEGIES: Diagrams, sketches, schematics, photographs, flow charts, or any other visual representation of course material Prepare a concept map by listing key points, enclosing them in boxes or circles, and drawing lines with arrows between concepts to show connections. Color-code your notes with a highlighter so that everything relating to one topic is the same color.
Auditory Learners Sit where they can hear but neednt pay attention to what is happening in front Repeat what they hear or read and explain in their own words to solidify understanding Hum or talk to themselves or others when bored Acquire knowledge by reading aloud Remembers by verbalizing lessons to themselves (if they dont they have difficulty reading maps or diagrams or handling conceptual assignments like mathematics).
Auditory Learners STRATEGIES Write summaries or outlines of course material in your own words. Working in groups can be particularly effective: you gain understanding of material by hearing classmates explanations and you learn even more when you do the explaining.
Kinesthetic Learners Need to be active and take frequent breaks Speak with their hands and with gestures Remember what was done, but have difficulty recalling what was said or seen Find reasons to tinker or move when bored Rely on what they can directly experience or perform
Kinesthetic Learners Activities such as cooking, construction, engineering and art help them perceive and learn Enjoy field trips and tasks that involve manipulating materials Sit near the door or someplace else where they can easily get up and move around Are uncomfortable in classrooms where they lack opportunities for hands- on experience Communicate by touching and appreciate physically expressed encouragement, such as a pat on the back
Kinesthetic Learners STRATEGIES: If you are an active learner in a class that allows little or no class time for discussion or problem-solving activities, you should try to compensate for these lacks when you study. Study in a group in which the members take turns explaining different topics to each other. Work with others to guess what you will be asked on the next test and figure out how you will answer. You will always retain information better if you find ways to do something with it.
