Introduction

I am going to do a project about how we learn. This will include a definition of learning, different ways we learn, different ways of learning all over the world and factors that can affect our learning.

Definition of Learning

“Learning is a gain of knowledge or skills through study, experience or being taught”.

Ways of Learning

Many people recognize that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques. Learning styles group common ways that people learn. Everyone has a mix of learning styles. Some people may find that they have a dominant style of learning. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances. The best way for a person to learn depends on the person. Teachers should make students aware of the various learning styles and encourage them to consider their preferred style as they complete their studies and this is what we did through this project.
The Seven Learning Styles
