Introduction

Explain how a person can use an understanding of their preferred learning style to help them be more effective in developing new skills. (Merit Criteria) Every person has a way that best helps them to digest information and use it appropriately. These so called learning styles are unique in the fact that not every person has the same style of learning. For some, revising online doesn't help them understand the respective subject because of the non-physicality of learning online. Rather, they prefer to write things down and go through it; which shows they like to physically involve themselves to learn something new. The above method of learning is known as kinaesthetic learning. Kinaesthetic learners prefer to be amidst activity and it's no wonder that they are known to excel in sport. ...read more.

Conclusion

When reading a book, auditory learners tend to whisper it quietly to themselves as reading it is not enough. One technique that an auditory learner would use is the participation in class discussions as well as volunteering and asking questions. Another popular technique is to tape the notes from the class and play it back. As I've discussed above, a learning style could be crucial to many people because it can heavily affect them in the way they digest and divulge information. Their best learning style can help them understand much better thus helping them develop new skills far easier and quicker. The more a person is taught in the learning style he best learns in, the more effective he can be in taking in the information and using it in day to day life. ?? ?? ?? ??
