Post #3 (Styles of Learning)

There are many different styles of learning. The main ones include: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. To learn visually is by looking at pictures, videos, or maps. To learn auditory is by learning through hearing sounds, lectures, and to read aloud and to learn kinesthetically involves hands on experiences, like touching or making things. Everyone has their own preferences on how they decide to learn, some students enjoy studying in the quiet scene of a library compared to other individuals who would rather have some background sound or music playing. It all depends on what helps you as a person learn better. As for myself I am definitely a visual learner, I like to be able to see the task I am trying to complete or learn through some type of picture, video, or slides. I was unaware that most learners are visual rather than auditory or kinesthetic.

  1. I am also a visual learner but I also do enjoy being hands on. I didn't know there was a specific name for hands on learning but going back now to dissections and just cooking it's something that is necessary in order for people to retain information. I also remember when Food Network used to have that show "Ace of Cakes" there was a baker who could SMELL the colors she sees or when she saw people "auras" she would invent cakes from what she might see from them. Your post kind of reminded me of that because everyone interprets everything very differently. So it wouldn't be to bizarre to know someone who is a more hands on learner.
