Introduction

Assignment 2 Unit Title: Learning Styles Task 1: (1.1,2.1) When learning to drive a car, visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning styles are used. The visual learning style is helpful when learning to drive a car because being shown how to drive using diagrams and then in real life can help the learner develop a clear mental picture of exactly how it?s done. I consider this to be the easiest method when taking driving lessons. The auditory learning style is helpful when learning to drive a car because, if you listen to instructions first it can help get the information into the brain about what you need to do, and can help you to remember what you need to do, which allows you to repeat these instructions to yourself whilst driving to help you with where to go and what to do. ...read more.

The kinesthetic learning style is helpful when learning to drive a car, because to practice hands on is vital as this is how you will be examined in the driving test. To start with I found this learning style difficult as coordinating my mind and body was hard, but as I have progressed with my driving it became natural to me. For the theory exam you can practise for it using all of the methods above, for example kinesthetic is used as you can click on the screen where you think the hazards are on hazard perception practice. ...read more.

Conclusion

It was unsuccessful because it was a different learning style to the one I like. I would have preferred a combination of visual and auditory learning styles first, moving on to kinaesthetic once I had mastered the basics.   I could have coped with these learning styles if I remembered everything he was showing and telling me, and practiced very hard until I was successful in remembering how to read the music and play the piano. The strategy which I could have used to cope with this learning style would have been to practice at home on my own until my playing became better. This strategy would have made my learning more successful by making me more relaxed and helped me gain confidence in my own abilities. ...read more.
