The center of new discoveries in learning is a way you can learn the style on how to reach your highest learning potential. Are you a visual, auditory or kinesthetic learner? Learning Styles affect everything you do, how you think, your work and even your relationship. The first secret to making learning faster and easier is to understand your personal learning style preferences.
Doing the personal evaluation was harder than I expected it to be. The most effective way for me to learn information is the Auditory Learning Style and Kinesthetic Learning Style. My score was 22% Visual, 50%Auditory and 28% Kinesthetic. As I read the tendencies for both the Auditory and Kinesthetic learning styles I checked each tendency that I do on a daily basis and realized that it’s split down the middle. As I was growing up I had a problem retaining information that I read. I would read a paragraph and forget half of what I read or just lose interest in it, then start over again. My first grade teacher caught on to this. When she would read out loud I wouldn’t have any problems remembering what she said. She gave me two things to try. One was to read out loud and see if I remember the information I just read. Two was to read it then write it down. At times I would write the same thing down up to five times. By doing this I was able to retain the information.
I have learned that reading out loud, just loud enough so that all I hear is me. Reading out loud is like being at a lecture. As I am reading I am listening to it and am able to retain the information without repeating it. As I read, I put what I read into a mental image of something that I have experienced or what someone told me they experienced before. Having that past experience, I do agree with my results...
