Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic Learners

Posted on January 19, 2011 at 3:36 AM

Individuals differ in their learning styles. Below you will find descriptions of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners. However, remember that they are just categories and things are not always so cut and dry. Individuals can have a predominant learning style and yet display characteristics of the other learning styles.

Your learning style may be the single most important key to improving your grades.

Students learn in many ways, like seeing, hearing, and experiencing things first hand. But for most students, one of these methods stands out.
Why is this important? Research has shown that students can perform better on tests if they change study habits to fit their own personal learning styles.
For example, visual-learning students will sometimes struggle during essay exams, because they can't recall test material that was "heard" in a lecture.
However, if the visual learner uses a visual aid when studying, like a colorful outline of test materials, he or she may retain more information. For this type of learner, visual tools improve the ability to recall information more completely.
A simple explanation of learning styles is this: Some students remember best materials they've seen, some remember things they've heard, while others remember things they've experienced.

You may recognize your own style quickly, once you look over the characteristics. If any of the traits and characteristics below sound familiar, you may have identified your own style.

I do love the way you have presented this specific issue and it does offer me personally a lot of fodder for thought. On the other hand, because of just what I have seen, I just simply wish as the remarks stack on that men and women keep on point and don't start upon a tirade associated with some other news of the day. Still, thank you for this outstanding point and whilst I do not necessarily agree with it in totality, I regard your viewpoint.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd certainly appreciate it.
