Blog post #3: Learning Styles

When I was a freshman in high school, we had to take a questionnaire assessing our learning styles, as a diversion from English class. I honestly do not believe the results were correct, with myself being scored as a high visual learner, a low auditory learner, a low kinesthetic learner, and a moderate tactile learner. The results were supposed to give me an idea about my strengths and weaknesses. At 14 years old, the brain is still changing, so the results shouldn't be taken as gospel. I could see the concept of learning styles meaning something if the students in question have autism or auditory processing disorder. For me, if the information being presented is stimulating, whether it's being taught in any learning style, it would work for me. If the information is not stimulating, it doesn't matter if it's being presented through words or pictures, because I won't remember it.

  1. I agree with your post because you pointed out the auditory processing disorder. I personally have hearing deficits so I tell myself that I'm more a visual learner. But in reality, if I'm shut out from excess noise and just hear what I'm trying to learn, I can learn it very well. However, most times I'm not presented with the opportunity of learning via audio without any outside noise interfering (e.g. people talking, fan noise, etc) so I opt to learn most things visually. But I think you're right. People will learn something if it piques their interest no matter the medium.
