Introduction

P1 & M1 Explain key influences on the personal learning processes of individuals. Assess the impact of key influences on the personal learning processes on own learning. There are many different factors that influence a person?s learning; these can be negative or positive, stimuli?s or barriers. Visual learning styles are called kinaesthetic and auditory. A visual learner is someone who learns by watching something, such as a video and watching someone demonstrating something, watching them do something, for example a person may learn to drive by watching someone regularly driving. Kinaesthetic learning mean a person learn by doing something, such as a practical activate. Auditory learning is learning by listening, for example listening to a teaching during a lesson. An example of another stimulus would be inspiration from a former teacher because that teacher has had an influence a person and influenced them in a positive way, they now may practice or carried on learning what they were taught by that teach through their life growing up. TV programs that have educational influences can teach people something without them realising they are been taught, because what they are watching they are interested in, they are paying a lot of attention to it, and if it is said in a fun way, or a way they can relate to it, it will stick in their minds. Theses learn are normally auditory or visual. Barriers of learning include setting; noise and lighting are important factors whilst learning, for example, in a very noisy environment someone would find it hard to concentrate. Personal problems are also barriers of learning, people with personal problem will find it hard to consecrate and think about anything else, they will be concentrating and thinking of their problems, or they may have to take time out of education they are in, to deal with what is happening in their life, this would have a significant effort on their learning. ...read more.

Active experimentation (exploring/ revising approaches) - this is the last stage in the cycle, this is the planning stage, what you will do next time differently, the person learns to deal with the different aspects differently from what they have learnt. Kolb?s learning cycle is useful for people to recognise looking over what they have learnt and thinking about it in detail involves a series of stages, this will help peoples development and learning because they will think over what they have learnt in more detail which will provide them to make a full understanding of the information.

Conclusion

was able to realise this and it made me discover and look at new career opportunities I may want to go into. I learnt over the two years that I work better under pressure and I get much more done when I have pressure on me, given this, too much pressure makes me fall apart completely. I enjoyed one of the units I did in the course a lot more than the rest, this was the course I completed to distinction straight away, I learnt that what I did enjoyed I got on with and wanted to learn, what I didn?t enjoy it took me a long time to complete. This helped me a lot with my development because, at the beginning of the course I was mind-set that it is compulsory to have a degree if you want to have a career, however I was never sure to what I would study at University, it made me realise that if I applied to university to study something I am not completely set on and wont enjoy I won?t be able to study that subject and I won?t be able to get a degree. The course taught me that work experience is very important, which is what I am going to focus on when the course is over. A social worker works with people who are experiencing crisis in their life or have recently experienced something traumatising and people who have been excluded from their family. A social workers role is to provide support. They maintain professional relationships with service users, acting as guides, advocates or critical friends. Social workers work in a variety of settings within a framework of relevant legislation and procedures, supporting individuals, families and groups within the community. Settings may include the service user's home or schools, hospitals or the premises of other public sector and voluntary organisations. Qualified social work professionals are often supported by social work assistants. They also work closely with other health and social care staff. ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

This essay contains a lot of information about learning and learning styles. The writer has discussed three theories and evaluated their own development.

It is a little descriptive at times though the discussion of theories is quite sound. It could be enhanced by trying to build up explanations and by developing the evaluation.
