Introduction

In this assignment I will be discussing what my learning process is, in order to achieve his I will be explaining what influences by learning, theories of learning, skills for learning and what learning opportunities I have. The factors that influence my learning are; time constraints, learning style, learning environment, learning resources, attitude and self-discipline. Time Constraints This influences my learning as time is valuable when at work or college especially when deadlines are involved. In order to achieve and aspire to what I want to do I try to attend lessons on time and try to be very punctual so that I do not miss any valid information that may be beneficial to me. A barrier which can occur that will cause a barrier to my learning would be if I do not organise my time correctly and as a repercussion of this is will miss deadlines and hand in late work. Relationships This can influence my learning and can create barriers to my learning as relationships i.e. friends, family, peers can peer pressure me into not doing my work and to go out and socialise with them which can make me late ...read more.

However, if I don't feel motivated I will not get on with work and wont enjoy it and if this happens no work will get done and I will fall behind on my work. When trying to achieve I remove distraction from where I am working or I will move myself if not able to move the distraction. If I self-discipline myself I will achieve what I am targeting for as well as meet deadlines. To self-discipline myself, I normally get rid of my valuables so that I can't distract myself. Theories of Learning There are two theories of learning and the people who created them are; David A Kolb and Honey and Mumford. Kolb said that in order to learn properly there are four different stages that you encounter and these stages are; Concrete experience, Observation and reflection, The formation of abstract concepts and Testing in new situations. This theory can benefit and influence the way I learn as if I use this theory then it will help me to organise my work and help to analyse what I'm doing in order to make sure I am doing it right. ...read more.

Conclusion

However, being a theorist may have a negative side as over thinking into work can lead to doing more than what needs to be done or might over complicate things which can cause a barrier as I can get very stressed over it. Skills for learning The skills that I have developed for learning are organisation as this will help my learning as I will organise my work as in what needs to be in first which will help me to meet my deadlines and targets. Planning my work also is a skill that I have developed as I can now create a plan or what I should do within one day and how long I think I can do to complete it which helps to motivate me as I have a bit of competition to compete against. In addition, interpersonal skills are helping me to learn and improve the way I deal with people and the way I react to them which will also help to enhance my placement and let me get the most experience out of it. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
