There are many different ways we can identify and describe our learning styles. The learning style you adopt has much to do with how best you grasp and understand whatever it is you intend to learn. The ways in which we learn best can easily be categorized into three:
1. Visual (Seeing)
A visual learner is someone who learns best by seeing a representation of what he or she is studying either in pictures, written words, or an actual demonstration. Good visual learners tend to:
– be strong readers (usually fast, but not always)
– be good spellers (usually because they can “see” the word)
– prefer after a certain age, to read for themselves rather than have stories read for them.
– find it easier to remember things they see rather than just hear (such as having instruction written down rather than spoken or using a map rather than listening to directions or having visual material presented on video CD)
2. Auditory (Hearing)
An auditory learner is someone who learns best by hearing things, such learners prefer hearing materials in a lecture or classroom setting. Good auditory learners tend to:
– prefer talking to writing when describing something
– prefer making a telephone call to sending a text message
– become more distracted by noise than visual learners
– have a stronger sense for music than for the visual arts such as painting
– remember what they hear more easily than what they see
3. Kinesthetic (Doing)
A kinesthetic learner is one who learns best by actually doing it. Moving, touching and experiencing something firsthand are often essential to this type of learner. Good kinesthetic learners tend to
– speak and write more slowly than the other modalities of learners
– use hand gesture more often
– prefer hands-on learning to just seeing or hearing about something
– memorize things better and more easily when being physically active (such as walking around the room when reciting something)
– understand things better when they are acted out
