  3. 3. Brain Gym<br />
  4. 4. Learning styles can be classified in many different ways:<br />They are the overall patterns that provide direction to learning and teaching.<br />A set of factors, behaviours and attitudes that facilitate learning for an individual in a given situation. <br />The process by which people perceive and process information.<br />It is individual.<br />Styles influence:<br />How students learn<br />How teachers teach<br />How the two interact<br />
  5. 5. Definition of learning styles<br />How do you like to learn something new?<br />Learn by listening to somebody explain?<br />Learn by reading?<br />Learn by seeing a demonstration?<br />
  6. 6.

  9. 9. You have two minutes ……<br />Write down all the words you can remember<br />And<br />A definition<br />
  10. 10. Origami<br />You have five minutes to make your model<br />
  11. 11. How did you find the activities ?<br />
  12. 12. We all learn in different ways ..<br />Some of us are visual and remember what we see<br />- learn by looking so remember pictures, words and what we see <br />Some of us are auditory and remember what we hear<br />– learn by listening so remember sounds, discussion and what we hear<br />Some of us are kinesthetic and remember what we touch and feel well <br />– learn by doing so remember action/hands on learning activities<br />
  13. 13. Left brained? <br />Right brained ?<br />Words, reading, language<br />Numbers<br />Logical, ordered<br />Makes plans<br />Likes facts<br />Follows rules<br />Tidy, organised<br />On time<br />Prefers black and white statistics <br />Art and being creative<br />Needs big picture<br />Takes risks<br />Music rhyme and rhythm, movement<br />Has ideas<br />Imagines, role-play<br />Disorganised<br />Prefers pictures<br />Some prefer to use the left side when learning, some prefer to use the right<br />
  14. 14. Each person has certain tendencies towards a particular style. <br />These can be influenced by culture, personal experiences, maturity level and development.<br />
  15. 15. BUT <br />although we tend to have a ‘fast lane’<br />– a sense we prefer to use <br />- we learn best when all three are engaged.<br />
  16. 16. Brain Gym<br />These exercises are designed to synthesize the visual, auditory and motor skills<br />In other words get the right side and the left side of the brain working together<br />
  17. 17. Questionnaire<br />What sort of learner are you?<br />(go to corners of room , aesthetic, visual, kinaesthetic, discuss why chose that learning style. Given questionnaire at tables. Group discussion are you surprised by the results?)<br />Gemma’s bit<br />
  18. 18. Learning styles in the last twenty years(Naomi )<br />
  19. 19. To learn we also need :<br />To be in a happy, safe, secure environment<br />To drink water<br />To have breakfast and a healthy diet<br />To have enough sleep<br />To have oxygen<br />To have no worries/stress/baggage<br />
  20. 20. Just a thought, should we hand out some biscuits at this point …. And have a couple of bottles of water ??? Ready for the group discussion ……<br />
  21. 21. Group discussion<br />Based on the learning styles you have just used, how would you integrate these into the classroom in different subject areas?<br />(A3 sheet paper, marker pens, brainstorm ideas. Give each group one subject area)<br />(Gemma)<br />
  22. 22. Feedback.<br />
  23. 23. Plenary!<br />Not sure what we will do here …<br />
  24. 24. Learning and the Senses <br />Effective teaching usually combines several approaches, or multi-sensory instruction, so the child uses more than one sense at a time while learning. <br />Multi-sensory approaches work well because of the way our brain is organized. <br />When we learn, information takes one path into our brain when we use our eyes, another when we use our ears, and a yet a third when we use our hands. <br />By using more than one sense we bombard our brain with the new information in multiple ways. <br />As a result we learn better. <br />Rief(1993) says that students retain: <br />10% of what they read <br />20% of what they hear <br />30% of what they see <br />50% of what they see and hear <br />70% of what they say <br />90% of what they say and do <br />
  25. 25. History (handout possibly?)<br />1904 Alfred Binet (French psychologist) developed first intelligence test.<br />1907 Dr Maria Montessori invented the Montessori method of education. She began using materials to enhance the learning styles of her students. Believed that students demonstrate mastery through their actions.<br />1950 – 1970 The study of learning styles declined for around fifty years due to the emphasis on IQ and academic achievement.<br />1956 Blooms Taxonomy (Benjamin Bloom) a step towards defining learning style differences.<br />1962 Isabel Myers-Briggs and Katherine Briggs developed Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)<br />1976 Dunn and Dunn learning style model was introduced, generating diagnostic instruments for evaluation.<br />1984 David Kolb developed learning style that believed learning skills are closely related to cognitive skills.<br />1990’s Emphasis placed on teachers addressing learning styles through curriculum adjustments that include each style. Allowing each student equal chance to learn.<br />Stuff that tonia has put together for handout <br />
