Histories of Art II: Week 1 Journal, How do you learn best?

Hi, Alfred here! ūüôā

So to introduce my learning style, this is something that I have not really taken noticed of, but from reviewing my techniques, I think I’m more of a visual learner!

If you are a visual learner, you learn by reading or seeing pictures. You understand and remember things by sight. You can picture what you are learning in your head, and you learn best by using methods that are primarily visual. You like to see what you are learning.

Here are some things that visual learners like me can do to learn better:

  • Sit near the front of the classroom.¬†
  • Use flashcards to learn new information.
  • Try to visualise things that you hear or things that are read to you.
  • Write down key words, ideas, or instructions.
  • Draw pictures to help explain new concepts and then explain the pictures.
  • Colour code things.
  • Avoid distractions during study times.

Being able to see things, and not just hearing them helps me learn well and absorb the knowledge better.

intelligence type capability and perception
Linguistic¬†‚ąö words and language¬†‚ąö
Logical-Mathematical logic and numbers
Musical music, sound, rhythm
Kinaesthetic¬†‚ąö body movement control¬†‚ąö
Visual / Spatial¬†‚ąö images and space¬†‚ąö
Interpersonal¬†‚ąö other people’s feelings¬†‚ąö
Intrapersonal¬†‚ąö self-awareness¬†‚ąö

The above is a test I took online to have a little insight on my multiple intelligence, I took the test over here.

The chart box has a little summarisation¬†of what each intelligence means and as much as I wasn’t surprise of the answer, it serves as a confirmation and could help me in future analysis of myself and use it in my study techniques.
