  • What are learning styles? www.nhrdpune.org Copyright NHRD Pune Chapter
  • Learning Styles • Learning is reflected in the way we respond to environmental, social, emotional and physical stimuli, to understand new information. • Learning style is defined as the way that information is processed. www.nhrdpune.org Copyright NHRD Pune Chapter
  • AURAL/AUDITORY VISUAL TACTILE/KINESTHETIC www.nhrdpune.org Copyright NHRD Pune Chapter
  • Working out Learning Styles • Watch where the eyes move - Up = visual - Side to side = Aural - Down = Tactile • Listen to the words we use - VISUAL “look at me”, “I see what you mean”, “I can’t picture it” - AURAL “listen to me”, “I hear what you’re saying”, “Sounds good” - TACTILE “Come to me”, “I feel for you”, “how does that grab you” • Ask Directions - VISUAL (Uses maps, Draws maps) - AURAL (Just tells you) - TACTILE (Takes you there, reinacts the movements) • Seating in Cinema • VISUAL (Middle) • AURAL (Sides) • TACTILE (Back) www.nhrdpune.org Copyright NHRD Pune Chapter

  • Impact on Teaching VISUAL LEARNERS They can be identified because they like reading and watching television and enjoy looking at photos, plans or cartoons. Visual learners learn by watching. They call up images from the past when trying to remember. In addition to this, they picture the way things look in their heads. www.nhrdpune.org Copyright NHRD Pune Chapter
  • Impact on Teaching VISUAL LEARNERS Ways to support their learning… • Posters, charts and graphs • Visual displays • Booklets, brochures and handouts • Variety of colour and shape • Clear layout with headings and plenty of white space www.nhrdpune.org Copyright NHRD Pune Chapter
  • Impact on Teaching AURAL LEARNERS They be identified because they love to talk, are attracted to sound (and distracted by noise), and prefer to hear things rather than read them. They may read in a ‘talking’ style, hearing the text as they go and may appear to daydream whilst ‘talking’ inside their head. www.nhrdpune.org Copyright NHRD Pune Chapter
  • Impact on Teaching AURAL LEARNERS Ways to support their learning… • Question and answer • Lectures and stories • Audio tapes, Podcasts • Discussion pairs or groups • Variety in tone, rate, pitch and volume • Music or slogans www.nhrdpune.org Copyright NHRD Pune Chapter
  • Impact on Teaching TACTILE LEARNERS They can be identified because they move around a lot, tap pens or shift in their seat. They may want lots of breaks, enjoy games and do not really like reading. Tactile learners learn best through movement and manipulation. The tactile learner will remember most effectively through practice. www.nhrdpune.org Copyright NHRD Pune Chapter
  • Impact on Teaching TACTILE LEARNERS Ways to support their learning… • Team activities • Hands-on experience • Cutting and pasting activities • Role-plays • Note taking • Emotional discussions www.nhrdpune.org Copyright NHRD Pune Chapter
  • Impact on Training • Language/Literacy • Business studies • Mathematics • Art • Drama etc… Can all be enhanced with attention to… Learning Styles www.nhrdpune.org Copyright NHRD Pune Chapter
