Knowing your Learning Style can help you when it comes to finding ways to study and complete school work, leading you to be a more successful student.
The four main types of learning are:
- VISUAL - using images, diagrams, and written directions to better understand concepts; preferring to learn when topics are presented visually.
- AUDITORY - prefer to learn through hearing lectures, and when sound is used to reinforce learning; often read material aloud to themselves to assist in understanding.
- KINESTHETIC - learn best through physically engaging with the learning the material; learn through experience the topics, acting out the learning the material, and through touch.
- READING / WRITING - preferring to learn through written word; find expression through research, reading articles/ books, and writing assignments.
If you do not already know your learning style, you can take this short (2 minutes) quiz here!
