  • Slide 6
  • Visual Learners : Use visual materials such as pictures, charts, maps, graphs, etc. Have a clear view of your teachers when they are speaking so you can see their body language and facial expression Use color to highlight important points in text Take notes or ask your teacher to provide handouts Illustrate your ideas as a picture or brainstorming bubble before writing them down Write a story and illustrate it Make outlines of everything! Study in a quiet place away from verbal disturbances Read illustrated books Visualize information as a picture to aid memorization Draw a map of events in history or draw scientific process. Copy what's on the board.

  • Tactile/Kinesthetic Learners: study in short blocks move around to learn new things (e.g. read while on an exercise bike, mold a piece of clay to learn a new concept) work at a standing position chew gum while studying use bright colors to highlight reading material dress up your work space with posters skim through reading material to get a rough idea what it is about before settling down to read it in detail. Role playing Studying with others Using memory games Using flash cards to memorize Tactile/Kinesthetic Learners: study in short blocks move around to learn new things (e.g. read while on an exercise bike, mold a piece of clay to learn a new concept) work at a standing position chew gum while studying use bright colors to highlight reading material dress up your work space with posters skim through reading material to get a rough idea what it is about before settling down to read it in detail.

  • Effects of Learning Style Awareness Nelson and colleagues (1993) examined the effects of a learning style intervention with more than 1,000 college students. This investigation revealed significantly higher grade-point-averages and improved attitudes for students made aware of their learning style preferences and then provided with suggestions for accommodating those preferences when studying and completing assignments. The findings of Cook (1989) and Nelson et al. (1993)were corroborated by Lenehan et al. (1994) who also reported significant increases in grade-point-averages and improved attitudes for students who had been provided homework/study prescriptions based on their individual learning style preferences.
