When we are discovering our Learning Styles the importance of this is to understand the difference between the types of learners.
Where do we go from here?
We research …
- Every one of us is an individual …
- We have different Personalities and Learning Styles abilities.
- What may work for you may not work for someone else.
Books and websites are a start!
Your local library – you can use to research and ask the reference librarian
A guidance counsellor at your school or college for some information
During the month of July, we will acknowledge that there are seven (7) Learning Styles throughout this month! What you will realise is that we often associate with several of these styles.
- Why these questions?
- What does this mean?
- What are the values behind all these?
The logic behind this is to make you think about yourself and why we have these qualities within us.
