Prezentacja programu PowerPoint : Understand the basis of learning styles Overview of Learning Styles Halina Ostańkowicz - Bazan February 2015

Prezentacja programu PowerPoint : 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, with far less use of the other styles. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances.

Prezentacja programu PowerPoint : Seven Learning Styles Visual (spatial) :You prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding . Aural (auditory-musical): You prefer using sound and music . Verbal (linguistic): You prefer using words, both in speech and writing . Physical (kinesthetic): You prefer using your body, hands and sense of touch . Logical (mathematical): You prefer using logic, reasoning and systems. Social (interpersonal): You prefer to learn in groups or with other people. Solitary (intrapersonal): You prefer to work alone and use self-study.

Prezentacja programu PowerPoint : There is no right mix. Nor are your styles fixed. You can develop ability in less dominant styles, as well as further develop styles that you already use well.

Prezentacja programu PowerPoint : Why Learning Styles? Your learning styles have more influence than you may realize. Your preferred styles guide the way you learn. They also change the way you internally represent experiences, the way you recall information, and even the words you choose. Research shows us that each learning style uses different parts of the brain. By involving more of the brain during learning, we remember more of what we learn. Researchers using brain-imaging technologies have been able to find out the key areas of the brain responsible for each learning style. http://learning-styles-online.com/overview/

Explore the links between various systems, and note them down.

Prezentacja programu PowerPoint : Social (interpersonal): You prefer to learn in groups or with other people. If you have a strong social style, you communicate well with people, both verbally and non-verbally. People listen to you or come to you for advice, and you are sensitive to their motivations, feelings or moods. You listen well and understand other's views. You may enjoy mentoring or counseling others.

Prezentacja programu PowerPoint : Solitary (intrapersonal): You prefer to work alone and use self-study. If you have a solitary style, you are more private, introspective and independent. You can concentrate well, focusing your thoughts and feelings on your current topic. You are aware of your own thinking, and you may analyze the different ways you think and feel.

Prezentacja programu PowerPoint : The learning styles inventory provides you with a guide to your own personal learning styles. By asking a series of questions and then scoring the results, it will illustrate your dominant and secondary learning styles. The learning styles inventory (quiz, questionnaire, test) is free and available on this site. You can do the test now. http:// learning-styles online.com/inventory/ questions.php?cookieset =y http://learning-styles-online.com/inventory/ Do the quiz and have fun .
