The different learning styles are split into three areas and these are visual, auditory and kinaesthetic.
Let’s explore the differences between each learning style and see how we can help…
Visual leaners prefer to use pictures and graphics to understand new information and help them learn. Their learning style works best with mind maps and lots of colour to help understand information.
EducationCity uses bright, engaging graphics and goes through concepts step-by-step with Learn Screens – great for helping students understand a topic!
Auditory learners have a learning style suited to listening and speaking in situations such as group discussions or presentations.
Most of EducationCity’s Activities use voiceover to explain concepts to help students understand what they need to do.
This is perfect for auditory learners who process information through listening. What’s brilliant is that students can also play back a lot of the voiceover, so they can take their time to learn and understand.
Kinaesthetic learners grasp their learning best through physical representations of concepts. These students have a learning style more suited to being hands-on with tasks.
To help you teach students with this type of learning style, the Activities on EducationCity come with Activity Sheets that can be printed out and used physically by students. There are also a number of Lesson Ideas which include physical tasks – perfect for this type of learner!
By understanding the different types of learners, you can gain a better perspective on how to address these learning styles in your lessons and help everyone learn to their full potential.
