Types of learning styles:
that have learning disabilities have one thing in common and that is a
processing deficit that gets in the way of their learning. However, every
individual learns differently. Roughly 20-30% of the school aged population can
recall more of what is heard, 40% remembers things visually or things that are
seen or read. However the remaining percentage must write or take notes, or
even use their fingers in order to get an understanding.
Auditory learning style:
learners usually benefit most from traditional teaching techniques, many
teachers teach in a lecture style, presenting the information by talking to
their students. Things such as a regulating tone of voice, inflection and
change of body language will help to keep the students interested and keep
their attention. These type of learners tend to succeed when information is
read aloud, hence why lectures are very beneficial to them.
Visual learning style:
type of learning style relies on visual learning meaning reading or
presentations. These learners benefit most from diagrams, charts, pictures,
films or any information that can be gathered through sight. Visual learners
tend to write lists, assignment logs and notes, as well as these techniques
helping visual learners, a lot of these can also benefit a kinaesthetic
Kinaesthetic learning style:
majority of the school population excels through learning kinaesthetically this
means through touching, feeling and experiencing things at hand. These learners
succeed most when they are totally engaged with learning activity. When
performing in physical learning activities such as: Science lab work, drama
performance, school trips etc. Due to the fact that there are a high number of
these learners in education, the education system is shifting towards a more
hands on approach.
Personal learning technique:
I understand which learning style I
use most due to participating in a questionnaire that helps individuals
discover what kind of learner each individual is. It does this by giving you
three options to choose from, your learning style depends on the choices you
After choosing out of all the options
it shows you a key at the bottom of the page showing what the coloured boxes
mean. Pink represents Kinaesthetic learning, blue represents visual learning
and green represents auditory learning.
I has completed all of it for myself I found out that I am a kinaesthetic
learner and work best through doing physical learning activity and much prefer
to get on with the task at hand without half as much verbal or auditory
learning than that of any other learning style.
learn best through kinaesthetic learning, this is due to the fact I learn more
effectively by getting hands on experiences such as practical activities. I
prefer a kinaesthetic learning approach because I think that getting more
physically involved in a task enables me to be more involved in the activity
therefore making my learning more effective. This will help my development
because I am able to be more practical in the activity and improve my knowledge
for the future.
