The benefits of gaining knowledge about Learning Styles, and how to apply strategies that will enhance learning in many different capacities: Jaclyn K. Kaina INFT 101-B14 5/18/2013

While teaching a Father’s Day hula to ten women and three children, I noticed that each produced greater results when taught in a specific manner or learning style appropriate to them as individuals. The little ones learned best by copying each dance motion and repeating the verses until they could commit the dance to their memory. Two women decided to take a video of the dance and practice on their own; three women chose to write the steps down and practice against their notes, and the remaining women also chose to learn by copying and repeating the hula motions. Although each had their own unique way of learning the dance, the end result was an amazing worship hula performed in one specific way. It is evident that taking the time to gain knowledge about learning styles and how to apply strategies to enhance learning can greatly benefit individuals in many different learning capacities. In a recent study, I was able to determine which learning style category I fell into. Three learning style categories were discussed. Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic Learning Styles were presented. The first part of the assessment was to go through three different lists consisting of different habits often associated with learning and studying. I was to read through each list and check off all that applied to my personal study and learning habits. When I was done, I found that I am dominantly a Visual Learner. Some of the characteristics I possess in relation to being a Visual learner are 1) I often ask for instructions to be repeated 2) I like to use maps or note cards when I review my notes 3) The best way for me to remember something is to picture it in my head. These are some
