Introduction

Learning Styles Implementation In this task I am going to show how different people vary according to their specific styles of learning. No two people learn in the same way. These developments can be enhanced by the identification of the persons learning style. These learning styles can show different properties such as a person being able to learn at different paces than someone else. Other properties such as being able to demonstrate performing certain actions may be carried out by others differently. There are different ways to help identify why people learn in different ways, how to encourage these learning techniques, categories of learning and how these learning techniques can be developed by learning styles. In addition to this many informal questioning techniques and various studies have been used to identify certain learners. The breakdown to these learners is as follows; * Active learners * Reflective learners * Sensory learners * Intuitive learners * Visual learners * Verbal learners * Sequential learners * Global learners Active Learners These types of learners learn to understand information by taking part in a practical experiment etc. These learners are keen to try different activities which enable them to join in group work and perform better. Sitting through different lectures can be complicated for an active learner to become involved. ...read more.

Examples of these characteristics include; Information shown through pictures, charts, diagrams etc. can be easily remembered. They have very strong visualisation skills, meaning they can preview drawings or text in their mind. Visual-spatial skills, such as shapes, sizes, textures, angles, and three-dimensional depths are strong. They will often also have a strong sense of body language. Auditory Learners Auditory learners are those who learn best by listening to information which is being explained. They may not understand a topic after reading it from a book, piece of text etc. however when it is read to them in a class lecture it will likely make more sense. Many of these learners can remember data quite accurately e.g. they could hear a phone number and then remember the tone to repeat it. These learners will also have gained strong language skills which would help to develop vocabulary. Other advantages of having strong auditory skills mean learning foreign languages will be normally easier. The learner will also have strong musical talents. Kinaesthetic Learners Most Kinaesthetic learners learn best by moving their bodies, by operating their large and small muscles when learning. They are classified as more 'hands on learners'. This learning makes concentration and learning easier by the involvement of movement. ...read more.

Conclusion

Impact of Learning Styles on Teamwork Different individuals will behave differently due to their individual learning style. By working in a team these learning styles can have a positive and negative balance. This can be a complex matter as different learners may not understand as quickly as there other colleagues. Their may be different members of the team that show different sets of characteristics, these are as follows; * Manager - This will be an individual who takes charge and manages the colleague's within the team. * Listener - This type of person will gain information by listening to other team member's ideas. * Organiser - Someone who will organise the tasks and activities that the team are performing. If members of the team do not have awareness of different people's learning styles, then some members may feel resented from the task that has been organised. However in some situations this can be an advantage to the team as; a mixture of learning skills will motivate the employees to work together, everyone will be able to contribute individual ideas. Problems may occur when all individuals have the same learning style as this would cause conflict especially in single role responsibilities. As long as each individual understands what is expected of them in the team and their responsibilities within certain tasks then the overall outcome of teamwork will be successful. ?? ?? ?? ??
