Learning Styles
The Visual Modality

 The visual learner remembers 75% of what the read or see.

 Demonstrations from the blackboard, diagrams, graphs and charts are all valuable tools for the visual learner.

 Generally, analytic visual learners will process the printed word before iconic (pictorial) information.

 Generally, global visual learners will process iconic (pictorial) information before reading the printed text.


Learning Styles
The Auditory Modality

 The auditory learner MUST HEAR things for them to have the best chance of learning.

 Only 30% of the general school-age population is auditory.

 Generally, the auditory learner will remember 75% of what they hear in a lecture.

  Using the auditory modality is the most difficult way to learn new material.


Learning Styles
The Tactile - Kinaesthetic Modality

 The tactile-kinaesthetic learner must DO things for them to have the best chance of learning.

 The tactile-kinaesthetic learner remembers best the things they experience.

 Kinaesthetic learning involves use of the whole body rather than just hands-on.

 Getting information from written materials or by listening is not as easy as aforementioned methods.



Traits of the Analytical Thinker:

  • Tend toward the linear, step-wise processes of learning.
