Prepare for School by Knowing Your Learning Style

More than likely, you've heard of different "learning styles" at some point in your life. Some of us learn in different ways more effectively than others. That's not to say that it's impossible to learn a concept outside of our preferred method, but it's good to know how to translate this year's virtual learning into more digestible formats.

Let's give an overview of each learning style today, and later in the week we'll dive more in depth!

1. Auditory Learning

Auditory learning is based in what the learner can hear and understand. Socratic discussions and asking questions, or listening to a lecture helps the auditory learner understand the most in a subject. Because many people are blended learners, an auditory learner may also benefit from musically based lessons or reading material.

2. Kinesthetic Learning

This means to learn by using movement. This can translate to crafting or building models, or taking apart items to see how they work. In a blend, a kinesthetic learner might enjoy dancing and singing, or creating graphs and charts to express data.

3. Visual Learning

Generally, visual learners like to view concepts in a compact format. This can mean a graph or model, and blended learners might enjoy creating them. Writing might be beneficial to a visual-auditory learner, and creating art could appeal to a visual-kinesthetic learner.
