What kind of learner are you?

What+kind+of+learner+are+you%3F

Here at DCSOMA we learned about different types of learners. The three different types of learners are visual learners, auditory learners, and kinesthetic learners. A visual learner learns through seeing things, an auditory learner learns best by listening, and a kinesthetic learner learns through experiencing and doing things. I interviewed three students at Darnell Cookman to see what they type of learner they think they are.

Student number one is a visual learner. She said, “I am a visual learner because just listening to things makes me forget easily.” She believes that she can “comprehend and remember things better when she sees them.” It helps her when she takes notes while highlighting key details that she must remember. Visual learners learn better by watching videos, looking at PowerPoints, reading, etc. This student also explained how “flashcards are a big help when studying.” While in biology we sometimes create graphs to show data this student explained how when her class does graphs, she retains the information better and can remember it. This is why student number one believes she is a visual learner.

Student number two believes that she is a kinesthetic learner. She said, “Projects and experiments really help me comprehend the work.” She explained how “in science/biology class we do experiments, and those experiments help me remember all the information and learn how to classify data.” Kinesthetic learners learn better hands-on, this helps student number one collect information.

Student number three is an auditory learner. He said, “I learn better by hearing others explain information.” He explained that lectures also help him comprehend information. Auditory learners often learn better with study sessions, explaining concepts, repeating information, etc. He also stated, “When I hear my teachers say important information, I remember it better than when I write it down.” This is why student number three believes he is an auditory learner.

The three students I interviewed are all different types of learners. Everyone learns differently that’s why we don’t always score the same on every assignment. Every student has the things they are better at, and it mostly depends on the way they learn things. Visual learners learn by seeing pictures, PowerPoints, etc. Kinesthetic learners work better in groups, seeing projects, and doing experiments. Auditory learners learn best by hearing others explain things.
