Learning StylesThe “Learning Styles Inventory”

There are three basic learning styles:




Kinds of visual learners
Kinds of visual learners…

  • The first are VISUAL LANGUAGE learners:

  • These people like to see words in books, on computer screens, on the board and in charts.

  • Often they learn better from books than they do in class.

  • Having information on paper is much more important than hearing it.

Kinds of visual learners1

  • The second kind are VISUAL NUMERICAL- they like to see numbers on the board, in a book, software & videos.

  • They want to see visible numbers, rather than hear them.

  • They like things printed on paper rather than oral explanations.

Kinds of auditory learners
Kinds of auditory learners

  • The first kind are AUDITORY LANGUAGE learners:

  • These students learn best from the spoken word.

  • You may hear these students vocalize words as they read, especially when dealing with something new.

  • They like to study with music and by talking to others about their subjects.

  • Second, AUDITORY NUMERICAL learners want to hear oral explanations of math problems.

  • They remember numbers easily and can usually work problems in their heads, often without needing paper and pencil.

  • You may hear them reading numbers and problems to themselves.

Tactile learners
Tactile learners

  • TACTILE CONCRETE learners seem to get knowledge best from direct physical experience.

  • They need to touch and manipulate what they are studying as well as see and hear it.

  • They often learn best when their hands are involved.

  • Their key word is “hands on!”

Social learning styles
Social Learning Styles

  • INDIVIDUAL LEARNERS get more work done alone.

  • They think best and remember more when they learn by themselves.

  • They keep their own counsel; they do not let other’s opinions influence them.

  • They usually socialize very little in class

  • GROUP LEARNERS value studying with others and don’t get as much done alone.

  • They want to hear other people’s opinions and ideas.

  • Group interaction increases their learning and knowledge.

  • Socializing is very important to group learners.

Expressing information
Expressing Information

  • Learners who are ORAL EXPRESSIVE like to tell what they know out loud.

  • They talk fluently & comfortably and are not shy about speaking in front of a group.

  • Organizing their thoughts to write on paper may be a slow, boring process for these oral students.

Expressing information1
Expressing Information

  • Students who are WRITTEN EXPRESSIVE generally write fluent essays and do well on written tests.

  • Their thoughts are better organized on paper and they may feel insecure having to give oral answers.

  • The written word is much important to them than the spoken one.

Remember important
Remember! Important!

  • No one learning style is better than any other.

  • It is quite possible that you have a combination of learning styles and they may be equally necessary to you.

  • Finding out what works best for you is what is important!

  • “KNOW THYSELF!” and be the most effective learner you can be…
