Learning Styles

  1. 1. Learning Styles Stacey Meister University of Phoenix
  2. 2. The 3 Learning Styles <ul><li>Visual Learners  learn through seeing . They prefer to create pictures in their heads to help them remember information. They like charts, graphs, and hand-outs.   </li></ul><ul><li>Auditory Learners learn through listening . They like talking things out and listening to what others have to say. </li></ul><ul><li>Tactile/Kinesthetic Learners learn through moving, doing and touching. They like hands on activities and don’t like to sit still for long periods of time.           </li></ul>
  3. 3. My Personal Learning Style <ul><li>I am a visual learner. </li></ul><ul><li>I like to picture the information as I learn. </li></ul><ul><li>It is hard for me to listen to a lecture and not take notes. </li></ul><ul><li>I am very organized and like teachers and students to be as well. </li></ul>
  4. 4. My Strengths <ul><li>I provide my students with very organized notes. </li></ul><ul><li>I often use fun charts and diagrams to present my information. </li></ul><ul><li>I try to help my students to improve on organization. </li></ul>
  5. 5. My Weaknesses <ul><li>I have a hard time remembering things when I don’t write them down. </li></ul><ul><li>It is hard for me to process information unless it is presented in a neat, logical way. </li></ul><ul><li>I don’t learn well by doing – I prefer to fully understand the task before physically doing something with the information. </li></ul>
  6. 6. How my learning style effects my teaching <ul><li>As a visual learner I love to give my students hand – outs. </li></ul><ul><li>I always organize my information into charts and diagrams. </li></ul><ul><li>I love using pictures to help illustrate my ideas. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>I try to help my students visualize the information we are learning. I help them to form pictures in their heads. </li></ul><ul><li>I love using color. I highlight important information and color code notes for my students. </li></ul><ul><li>I give my students detailed notes, but I highlight the important information so they don’t get overwhelmed. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>In the past I haven’t incorporated a lot of kinesthetic activities into my lessons. </li></ul><ul><li>I don’t give my students as much of an opportunity to move around as I should. </li></ul><ul><li>Now that I understand the importance of incorporating all learning styles, I be able to incorporate more auditory and kinesthetic activities into my lessons. </li></ul>
  9. 9. The Importance of Understanding Learning Styles: <ul><li>Now that I fully understand learning styles and how I learn, I can better incorporate all learning styles into my classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>I have given my students the opportunity to take learning inventory tests so they can better understand how they learn. </li></ul>
  10. 10. In Conclusion… <ul><li>I am a better teacher for understanding how I learn. This allows me to play up my strengths and improve on areas of weakness. </li></ul><ul><li>By knowing how my students learn, I can gear my lessons towards their learning styles. </li></ul>
