  4. 4. Learning StylesThe first factor involved in learning styles is informationprocessing. Information processing styles refer to theway in which the child concentrates, absorbs, and retainsinformation.There are two learning processing styles - • Analytic • Global Holland Codes Resource Center © 2002 - 2012
  5. 5. Analytic and Global Learners Analytic Learners prefer details. Global Learners prefer the big picture. Holland Codes Resource Center © 2002 - 2012
  6. 6. Analytic and Global Learners• Analytic learners prefer details, step by step approaches, fact by fact modes, focused approaches, consistency, as well as logical, objective, and organized presentations of the facts.• Global learners prefer seeing the broad view (the big picture), using intuition, seeing the interrelationship between things, doing group activities, and completing multiple tasks.

  8. 8. Auditory, Visual, Tactual, and Kinesthetic Learners• The next learning factor is perceptual ability.• Perception is the method we use to take in information to observe our world.• A perceptual factor of learning refers to the child’s preferred way of learning. Perceptual strength relates to auditory, visual, tactual, or kinesthetic learning. Holland Codes Resource Center © 2002 - 2012
  9. 9. Auditory, Visual, Tactual, and Kinesthetic Learners (2)• The auditory individuals learn as a result of hearing, verbalizing, and listening.• The visual children input information by reading, seeing, and watching.• Tactual learners acquire knowledge using feeling, touching, handling, or manipulation.• Kinesthetic learning comes through experience and involvement. Holland Codes Resource Center © 2002 - 2012
  10. 10. Concrete and Abstract LearnersThe third learning style model deals with the perceptual processes of knowing or cognitive abilities.The perceptual process deals with the way in which we view our environment.The two perceptual patterns are -• Concrete• Abstract Holland Codes Resource Center © 2002 - 2012
  11. 11. Concrete and Abstract Learners (2)• Concrete learners use information received from their five senses of sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing.• Concrete learners’ time orientation is in the present.• Concrete learners view things in a tangible, factual and literal way.• Abstract learners prefer studying relationships and unseen ideas.• Abstract learners use intuition and imagination. Holland Codes Resource Center © 2002 - 2012
  12. 12. Sequential and Random Learners • Cognitive abilities include ordering learning styles. • Ordering is understanding, using, and storing new information in accomplishing a goal or task. • Two types of ordering styles are - • Sequential • Random Holland Codes Resource Center © 2002 - 2012
  13. 13. Sequential and Random Learners (2) • Sequential learners organize information in a step by step manner. • Sequentials like logical and linear thinking. • Random learners are spontaneous. Holland Codes Resource Center © 2002 - 2012
  14. 14. Concrete, Abstract, Sequential, and Random Learners• Perceptual and ordering abilities are interrelated.• The relationship between the abilities results in four learning style combinations - • Concrete sequential • Abstract sequential • Concrete random • Abstract random Holland Codes Resource Center © 2002 - 2012
