...To most of us, learning means an attempt to create a memory that lasts. Like learning new dance steps, foreign language, or remembering people’s names require our brains to store new information. "Learning is...... knowledge or skills acquired through study or by being taught. As cited in the English Oxford Dictionary. 23/10/09 How we all learn depends on our own personal learning style which will be discussed further on. Learning never stops, and is done on a daily basis. Learning on a personal level helps you to gain self confidence allowing you to become more knowledgeable and competent at doing new things. You gain a wider sense of the world and how things work and why. It also gives you the drive and ambition to set yourself new challenges in your life, such as me doing my foundation degree! Learning at a professional level differs from that of a personal learning as you must be open to learning and willing to engage in new learning opportunities. We reflect on our practices, by having staff meetings, appraisals, and analyse where we need to gain a better understanding and do this by attending training courses to enhance our professional knowledge, skills, and attitudes and by keeping us up to date with current frameworks such as EYFS. Within this essay the following will be explained; the relevance of personal and professional learning to myself, what a learning style is, a comparison of Honey & Mumford and Kolb, validity of......

Describe Your Learning Style

...Running head: How Do I Learn Best How Do I Learn Best Kelli Powell Grand Canyon University: NRS 429V September 30, 2012 What is a learning style? Well a learning style is the way a person tends to learn best. It involves your preferred method of taking in, organizing, and making sense of information, Lake Washington Institute of Technology (2012). Some people prefer to learn by doing and touching, others prefer to learn by seeing, or by hearing the information. Still others learn using more than one learning style. If a person was interested in finding out what their particular learning style is would be to take the VARK questionnaire for learning styles. The most common learning style is the multimodal, but the learner can switch from one type of learning style to another depending on what the subject is being learned and or their mood, Fleming (2011). After taking the VARK questionnaire, Multimodal learning styles was assessed as the learning style of choice. The multimodal learning environments allow instructional elements to be presented in more than one sensory mode (visual, aural, written, and kinesthetic), Sankey, Birch & Gardiner (2010). In this particular case visual and kinesthetic were the dominate methods of learning. Strategies of learning that this person uses are highlighting and underlining notes, grouping subjects together with a certain color highlighter, use of charts, graphs and images to help them learn the subject matter.......

...My Learning Style? What's my learning style? Why is it important? Every day we interact with the world around us, and as we do we are constantly learning. Recently I have begun to pursue my Bachelors Degree. Our first college course is designed to help us achieve that goal by providing us insight to the type of student we are and how we learn best. We have been focusing on learning styles and our motivation to learn. Using examples in the next few paragraphs I will attempt to show what I have identified to be my motivation and learning style for pursuing my degree. First lets cover motivation. "Motivation is the force that draws us to move towards something" (Connor 2004). Motivation can play a very large part on how we learn. If you are motivated, you are more likely to learn faster because you find the subject fun or interesting. There are many reasons on why someone might be motivated to learn. For example my motivation to learn is to change my life and the type of work I do, while still providing for my family. Recently I have come to the realization that I am bored in my current career. My parents always taught me that since we have to work most of our lives, choose something you enjoy and if you no longer enjoy it make changes because doing what you enjoy leads to a more happy fulfilling life. So I have decided to change career fields. In order to enter my new chosen field I must have the basic knowledge and understanding of that field, therefore I must learn.......

...What are learning styles? Do learning styles exist? Since 1920, researchers have been studying these experiments for over 50 years. According to the Washington Post, there is a lack of evidence of theories being proposed but, learning styles might exist in the near future. Your learning styles are the different ways you develop, process, and receive the information. Achieving goals can increase your motivation, better your understanding of materials, apply yourself more, evaluate yourself, and shows you how to understand the material. Researchers have found when you recognize your strengths and weaknesses, you can fix your learning habits and it can help you improve your grades. Discovering your learning style and what type you have, you will begin to transform and you will have the tools needed to make important decisions about learning. A teacher or a parent has their own unique style that makes their learning process much easier but can be challenging sometimes. However, environmental factors can affect how you learn material and process information. Students can only determine what their learning style really is if they can retain information best by seeing the material, hearing information, or a hands-on experience. There are three major categories or types of individual learning styles that can recognize your learning patterns and how this can help you in the future. The three learning styles are auditory, tactile (kinesthetic), and visual. If you gain more knowledge......

Learning to Flex Your Communication Style

...Learning to Flex Your Communication Style Communication styles are part of the foundation of building effective relationships. In order to build future positive relationships, we must learn to flex our styles. Robert and Dorothy Bolton (1996), co-authors of Peoples Styles at Work, state, “Strong relationships are built by being consistently honest, fair, and respectful of others” (p. 117). The combination of style flex, honesty, fairness and respect helps to achieve the goal of effective communication, which leads to better personal and professional relationships. As an amiable style communicator, I find it easier to relate to others. My style reflects my personality as being positive, helpful and warm. More than often, I tend to ask the question “why” to be able to understand my audience’s needs. Being emphatic and sensitive to the needs of others leads to pleasant relationships. I like being part of a team, assisting others with assignments and working in small groups. This allows me to build relationships that are more personal not just those of association. When meeting the needs of others, I often have to flex my communication style. As easy as it is to want to remain the soft spoken, well-liked, and respected person, sometimes this can have a negative on affect relationships. I have to become more aggressive and direct at various meetings and high alert situations. Style flexing helps me to achieve effective communication. When working...

...The Four Learning Styles When it comes to learning everyone learns differently. You might use one or all your senses to help you process and learn the information. There are four different types of learning style there is read/write, visual/graphic, auditory/verbal and lastly tactile/kinesthetic style. Read/write learning style prefers information to be presented in a written format. Learning new information comes easier to you if you’re able to read it yourself. Instead of someone else reading and explaining the information for you. You like taking notes so you are able to read and study from them later. When it comes to studying it is helpful for you to read over handouts, lecture notes and textbooks. Transferring mathematical problems, pictures, and diagrams into written words to make it easier to understand. People who has a Visual/ graphic learning style learn best when the information is presented visually in the form of a picture, symbols, graph or diagram. Watching and listening to video and film presentation help you better understand the material. You recall information by picturing it in your head. The best study environment for you is in a quiet room by yourself. Highlighting and underlining information is helpful because you can easily find it to study from. To help you memorize important and key information you may use flash cards. Auditory/verbal learning style learns by listening. When learning you might want to read and talk out loud so you’re able to...

...Intelligences to Enhance Studying and Learning Describe the major characteristics of your preferred learning style? Describe your learning style, based on the assessments and readings from this week's materials. I am an intrapersonal, visual, and interpersonal learner. Sometimes I like working in groups sharing information and sometimes I do not that is the major difference in interpersonal and intrapersonal learning. It does surprise me that I am both an interpersonal and a intrapersonal learner I didn’t know you could be both. I am also a visual learner and also hands on learner. I remember facts and details better when I can see pictures, graphs or tables. List at least three study strategies and techniques you have or will use during this course to increase your effectiveness? The three study strategies I would choose to increase my effectiveness are making studying an everyday routine, managing my study time wisely, and I think I may get a tutor. First I would choose making studying a daily routine because that will ensure me that I know the information. If I study everyday than I will never have those days where I don’t feel like studying. Second tip I chose was to manage my study time wisely so that I can study correctly and can hit those important key notes before my study time runs out. Third I choice to get a tutor because I never had one before and I think it may be good for me especially in math. What is the link between your learning style and effective......

...All people have a different learning style such as visual, auditory or kinesthetic, but everyone has a dominant one. When a person is learning he or she uses the learning style that is suitable for them. There is a tool called VARK- A guide to learning by Neil D. Fleming that can determine which learning style each person prefers. According to the VARK (Visual, Aural, Read/Write, Kinesthetic) system questionnaire I scored Visual: 9, Aural: 3, Read/Write: 7 and Kinesthetic 9 and was considered a multimodal learner which is someone who has multiple preferences. As stated in the VARK learning styles 60% of the population fits this category. The learning style I prefer is kinesthetic. Throughout my career in military law enforcement I was able to learn many different ways, but I learned faster and retained more for a longer period of time if I can see what I am doing and having the hands on approach. I believe being able to do it yourself or having the chance to be more hands on with the problem can help the person get a far better understanding. My other preferred style is Visual. This style will benefit me because it helps me to have a visual of what I need in order to understand. Andragogy is a model of adult learning and education developed by Malcolm Knowles. Knowles' theory of andragogy is an attempt to develop a theory specifically for adult learning. Knowles emphasizes that adults are self-directed and expect to take responsibility for decisions.......

...Learning Styles & Professors Both your professors and your learning styles are different and unique. By knowing your professor and his/her teaching style you will have a distinct advantage. Once you know how to properly use your learning style so that you can manipulate it to work with your professors teaching style, you will notice that lectures and studying will be come far more easier for you. You can no longer be a passive student, taking only what is spoon-fed to you; you must seek out your own education. This includes both the knowledge you have about your professors and the knowledge you have about yourself. The more you know about each of these the better prepared you will be for the class. I. Meeting A Professor Explain to your students that professors are not teachers and may never have had any classroom training. They are here because they are experts in their field. We are a learning institution as well as a teaching university, so most professors are here to do research to advance knowledge, as well as teach classes. Remember that your professors are people too; some people are nice and some people are not. Be polite and adult when interacting with your professors. Professors who obtain tenure have academic freedom. Having tenure basically means that the professor can form his or her own guideline for teaching. In order for a professor to receive tenure they must teach at the U of S for a minimum of three years and go through a......

...1. What do we mean by learning style? If you were asked to explain learning style to a fellow student, how would you define it? Be specific. Learning style is the approach or the way in which a learner can absorb and recollect information. 2. Determine your learning style by completing the LEAD survey in chapter 7. After completing the assessment, state your learning style. Based on your experience, is this assessment accurate? Explain why or why not by providing examples. My learning style is the tactile learning style, based on experience I do agree with the assessment but I also relate with part of the auditory learning style as well. 3.     In your own words, state the difference between learning style and learning strategy. What are some specific techniques you can use to help you understand and retain new concepts? Learning style is the natural way of learning (kind of a default pre-programmed way) while learning strategy is an adopted or chosen technique that would help the learner assimilate better. * Mind mapping is a concept I want to try out, I’m sure it will help me understand and retain new information * I also want to incorporate listening to music during study time. 4.     How do you put your learning style into practice in the classroom? If you are a visual learner, how do you use visual elements to help you learn material? If you are an auditory learner, how do you use this preference to improve comprehension? If you are a tactical......

What's Your Stuff Worth

...Binula Illukpitiya June 1st, 2016 V-Check:1.3 What’s your stuff worth? After Hurricane Katrina, Jamie’s friends had newfound knowledge on how to become financially prepared. Their main recommendations to become financially prepared were to save as much money as possible from your job, try not to live check to check and instead try to cut back on unnecessary expenses, do not live a life where disasters like Katrina can cause severe problems to you due to living too comfortably but instead be sensible with your budget and try to save up emergency money. All of the recommendations they proposed revolved around the central idea of being careful with what you have and do not carelessly spend. A recommendation that I would add would be having a plan beforehand as to what to do during a disaster. For example, understanding where the best place is to go and having money saved up in a bank account designated for a crisis like this. Jamie was able to use the money she had earned and saved by depositing most of her earnings in a bank account. This way, Jamie was able to keep some cash on hand which was designated for use in an emergency while being able to spend on food and other items during non-emergency situations through her debit card and all the while being wise about her spending. Before watching this video, I would not have used the money in the same way Jamie had. In the past, I have been prone to spending large amounts of money on unnecessary items and never......

Learning Styles

...LEARNING STYLES Students preferentially take in and process information in different ways: by seeing and hearing, reflecting and acting, reasoning logically and intuitively, analyzing and visualizing, steadily and in fits and starts. Teaching methods also vary. Some instructors lecture, others demonstrate or lead students to self-discovery; some focus on principles and others on applications; some emphasize memory and others understanding. When mismatches exist between learning styles of most students in a class and the teaching style of the professor, the students may become bored and inattentive in class, do poorly on tests, get discouraged about the courses, the curriculum, and themselves, and in some cases change to other curricula or drop out of school. Professors, confronted by low test grades, unresponsive or hostile classes, poor attendance and dropouts, know something is not working. They may become overly critical of their students (making things even worse) or begin to wonder if they are in the right profession. Most seriously, society loses potentially excellent professionals. To overcome these problems, professors should strive for a balance of instructional methods (as opposed to trying to teach each student exclusively according to his or her preferences.) If the balance is achieved, all students will be taught partly in a manner they prefer, which leads to an increased comfort level and willingness to learn, and partly in a less preferred manner, which......
