SECTION 1



LEARNING




Learning occurs in four major ways


transmission,

acquisition,

accretion

emergence.



Transmission is the process by which information, knowledge, ideas
and skills are taught to others through purposeful, conscious telling,
demonstration, and guidance. Over the course of a lifetime, this method
accounts for only about 10% of learning. Unfortunately, this is the most
traditional and, currently, the most predominate method of instruction.
However, we are finding out it is not very effective and moving toward
acquisition and emergence, and examining the lessons of accretion.

Acquisition is the conscious choice to learn. Material in this category
is relevant to the learner. This method includes exploring, experimenting,
self-instruction, inquiry, and general curiosity. Currently, acquisition
accounts for about 20% of what we learn.

Accretion is the gradual, often subconscious or subliminal, process by
which we learn things like language, culture, habits, prejudices, and
social rules and behaviors. We are usually unaware that the processes
involved in accretion are taking place, but this method accounts for
about 70% of what we know. Social learning certainly plays into this
type of learning, as does the hidden or covert curriculum.

Emergence is the result of patterning, structuring and the construction
of new ideas and meanings that did not exist before, but which emerge
from the brain through thoughtful reflection, insight and creative
expression or group interactions. This form of learning accounts for the
internal capacities of synthesis, creativity, intuition, wisdom, and
problem-solving. This method is greatly dependent on the allocation of
time, and opportunities to reflect and construct new knowledge. This
method plays an important role in inspiration and originality. In the
context of current educational practices, we learn only 1-2% by this
method.

THE FOUR DIFFERENT
TYPES OF LEARNERS




Remember when you were in school and you had to cram hundreds of
pages of textbook material into your head before every big test?

If you were like most students, you and your friends probably
developed all kinds of tactics to make the grade. Maybe you made
flashcards, or reviewed recordings of your professors’ lectures,
or came up with intricate mnemonic devices to memorize the material
at hand. You may have argued with your classmates about which method
was best—but the truth is that, when it comes to learning, one size
does not fit all.



Four primary types of learners:

visual

auditory

reading/writing

kinesthetic

LEARNING STYLES




Learning styles refer to a range of competing and contested theories
that aim to account for differences in individuals' learning. These
theories propose that all people can be classified according to their
'style' of learning, although the various theories present differing
views on how the styles should be defined and categorised. A common
concept is that individuals differ in how they learn.

TYPES OF
LEAENING STYLES




Learning styles are often categorized and explained in the
following way:



Visual:

You learn well when aided by images, pictures, and spatial
organization of elements



Auditory:

You learn well when aided by music, sound, rhyme, rhythm,
speaking or listening



Reading/Writing:

You learn well by reading or writing the material you want
to learn



Kinesthetic:

You learn well when you can move your body, and/or use your
hands and sense of touch. Writing or drawing diagrams are
physical activities that can fall into this category as well.

7 MAJOR
LEARNING STYLES




Everyone learns differently, that’s nothing new. However, over the
years the different styles of learning have usually been cut down
to visual, physical (learn-by-doing), or audible. Truth is, we could
probably dissect each of these learning three styles down even further
and arrive at a handful of sub-levels.

Learning is a complicated concept as everyone is unique in their own way,
and learns in their own way as well. That said, it is still very much
possible to classify a learning style into one of seven categories.
Perhaps you fall into one of the following:



1. Visual:

These people prefer to use pictures, images, diagrams, colors, and
mind maps.



2. Physical:

These are the “learn by doing” people that use their body to assist
in their learning. Drawing diagrams, using physical objects, or role
playing are all strategies of the Physical learner.



3. Aural:

People who prefer using sound (obviously), rhythms, music, recordings,
clever rhymes, and so on.


4. Verbal:

The verbal learner is someone who prefers using words, both in speech and
in writing to assist in their learning. They make the most of word based
techniques, scripting, and reading content aloud.



5. Logical:

The people who prefer using logic, reasoning, and “systems” to explain or
understand concepts. They aim to understand the reasons behind the learning,
and have a good ability to understand the bigger picture.



6. Social:

These people are the ones who enjoy learning in groups or with other people,
and aim to work with others as much as possible.



7. Solitary:

The solitary learner prefers to learn alone and through self-study.

THE 8 TYPES OF
LEARNING STYLES




Might think that there’s only one way to learn something - and you
would be wrong. You may not have known that you can boil down the
various ways of learning into 8 different styles, and new research
shows that these different learning styles may even be deduced from
fingerprints, of all things



The Linguistic Learner

The linguistic learner is one who learns best through linguistic
skills including reading, writing, listening, or speaking.

Sometimes, it’s a combination of these methods. So, for example,
if a linguistic learner wanted to tackle a new skill, their best
method of learning would be to read about it, then listen to an
audio recording and take notes on it. Finally, concretizing it
would require speaking about it and, possibly, writing about it
extensively.

Not surprisingly, some of the best teachers and professors are
linguistic learners. It’s in the nature of the profession.



The Naturalist

The naturalist learns by working with, and experiencing, nature.


The Musical or Rhythmic Learner

The musical or rhythmic learner is one who learns using melody
or rhythm.



The Kinesthetic Learner

The Kinesthetic learner is a person that learns best by actually
doing something.



The Visual or Spatial Learner

A visual or spatial learner is a person who learns best if there
are visual aids around to guide the learning process.



The Logical or Mathematical Learner

The logical or mathematical learner must classify or categorize
things.



The Interpersonal Learner

The interpersonal learner is someone who learns by relating
to others.



The Intrapersonal Learner

The intrapersonal, as opposed to interpersonal, learner is
someone who works and learns best when they are alone.

HOW TO IDENTIFY
YOUR CHILD'S LEARNING STYLE




Parents and educators have, at least anecdotally, identified three
main types of learning — kinesthetic, visual, and auditory. Usually,
children will show a balance among all three, but there may be a
particular style that allows them to thrive.

If you know your child's learning style, you'll have a stronger grasp
of how to help her study, and you can be a better advocate for her at
school. Knowing her learning style can also better inform your choices
as you consider after-school activities, camps, and extracurricular
classes.

There are several quizzes you can take to help you identify a learning
style that works for your child. But you'll also get a good idea of
which one applies just by considering what she already likes or by
thinking about the kinds of activities she is drawn to.

Use the information below to learn more about each style and to identify
which your child might prefer.



Kinesthetic Learners

Kinesthetic learners are physical. You'll know if your child has this
strength if she is great at sports or a natural dancer. These learners
usually have a strong sense of balance, and they learn best by touching
or doing things themselves. For example, this kind of learner tends to
use a lot of gestures, or she may count on her fingers or clap along
while she is counting.

Kinesthetic learners may have even exhibited some of these characteristics
as babies or toddlers by being early crawlers and walkers, or especially
physical babies. If so, these strengths have probably stayed with her as
she’s grown older.



Indications your child is a kinesthetic learner:

•Aptitude in sports, dance, or other physical activities

•Tendency to fidget while in her seat — she may need to move
while processing information

•Frequent use of gestures when speaking or explaining things

•A love of hands-on activities and play-acting

•Enjoyment of writing, drawing, or handwriting exercises

•Early physical development, such as walking, crawling, or
sitting early

•Sharp hand-eye coordination



Auditory Learners

Auditory learners are drawn to sound. They may be especially musical
and show an aptitude for playing instruments or singing. They are
good listeners and often have verbal strengths. They follow oral
directions well.

As a baby, did your child perk up when conversations were going on
around her? Did she notice the sound of the rain when other children
were oblivious to it? Does your child better understand when she reads
aloud to herself? If so, then you probably have a child who learns best
by listening.



Indications your child is an auditory learner:

•Aptitude in music, instruments, or vocal ability

•Tendency to sing along to songs or to create her own songs as she plays

•Strong verbal ability, especially through repetition of words or phrases
she’s heard before

•Ability to listen well and follow verbal directions

•A love for talking and discussions

•Sharp ability to notice sounds that others don't recognize

•Perking up when she hears music or dialog



Visual Learners

Visual learners are observant of the world around them and are drawn to art.
You may notice this kind of learner looking at paintings, lingering over
illustrations in books, and showing keen interest in photographs. Visual
learners tend to enjoy screens — whether computers, televisions, or movies,
and they retain the information they find there.

These kinds of learners also have vivid memories. If your child is a visual
learner, she may be especially skilled at remembering names, places, and
people. She may have even exhibited these skills from a young age, by
recognizing the places you’ve returned to together.



Indications your child is a visual learner:

•A vivid imagination

•An interest in art: painting, drawing, or crafts

•A strong memory that relays visually-observed information

•A good sense of direction and an understanding of maps

•An aptitude in reading and a love of books

•Recognition of people, faces, and places

•A keen interest in observing the world around her



Your child probably has some aptitude in each of the three learning
styles, but if you look closely, you might see that one of them is
particularly strong. This recognition can help you tailor your child's
learning process and build on her innate strengths in the future.
