Study Techniques For Your Learning Style Study Smarter! Not Harder!
Visual Learners • High Visual learners tend to learn information by seeing(i.e. reading or watching). • Reading textbooks, material on the board or on overhead projectors, as well as demonstrations and diagrams are helpful
Visual Learning Activities • Watch YouTube videos related to the subject • Use concept maps, graphs, timelines, and other visuals to see the big picture. • Illustrate your notes • Use highlighters to color code notes • Use symbols • Visualize the lecture • Write it out • Post-it Notes • Read!
Audio Learners • High Auditory learners benefit from listening – hearing the information and processing it accordingly. • Auditory learners focus easily on sounds and have good memory of what they have heard through lectures or on tape.
Audio Learning Activities • Think aloud and talk to yourself • Read text aloud • Jingles, rhymes, mnemonics • Study with a friend aloud • Recite information over and over again (close your eyes) • YouTube Videos • Talk you way through new information • LOL = Learn Out Loud!
Kinesthetic Learners • High Kinesthetic learners acquire knowledge best through manipulation – doing, touching, hands-on, and writing techniques.
Kinesthetic Learning Activities • Take frequent study breaks and vary your activities • Make studying more physical—work at a standing desk, chew gum, pace while memorizing, read while on an exercise bike, mold a piece of clay, squeeze a tennis ball • Use flashcards • Use the computer (ipad) to reinforce learning through touch • Make sample tests • Role Play
Learning Styles • Although you may prefer or find a specific learning style more useful that does NOT mean you should limit self. • Most people do not strictly fall into one learning style. • Incorporate different studying techniques from each style.
Try It Out! • Take out your homework, notes, or other assignments and try out these techniques based on your learning style.
