Learning Modalities

  1. 1. Learning Modalities
  2. 2. I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand Confucio
  3. 3. What is Learning Modality?
  4. 4. Learning Modalities are the ways we process information to memory and there are basicaly three ways.
  5. 5. Visual Way
  6. 6. People who experience the world primarily visually like to take in information through their eyes. Visual Way
  7. 7. They like to see things written down, read books, look at pictures, diagrams and so on. The take notes (usually neatly) in order to look at them again. Visual Way
  8. 8. Auditory way
  9. 9. People who experience the world primarily auditorily like to get information through their ears. Auditory Way
  10. 10. They like to hear things being said, listen to audio, perhaps even have a chance to repeat things in their own head. They would rather record a lecture than take notes. Auditory Way
  11. 11. Kinaesthetic way
  12. 12. People who experience the world primarily kinaesthetically like to get information through their hands or bodies or emotions. Kinaesthetic Way
  13. 13. They like to touch things, move their hands or feet, walk around the room. They also take notes, not necessarily to look at them again, but because the movement of their hand across the page helps them to absorb information. Kinaesthetic Way
  14. 14. Everyone uses all three learning modalities, but generally there is one modality that is more dominant or that fosters better concentration.
  15. 15. Knowing which is your dominant modality can help you to assimilate information and communicate information better.
  16. 16. It’s pretty common to see facilitators teach in a way that is convenient for them…
  17. 17. ...but not the most effective way for the participants to absorb it!
  18. 18. Think of a teacher trying to teach the alphabet through all three learning modalities. How it would be? Let’s try some options.
  19. 19. Shows pictures, or video of the alphabet Visual Way
  20. 20. Has the students sing the alphabet Auditory Way
  21. 21. Has the students act out the letters Kinaesthetic Way
  22. 22. On an average we remember….
