Learning Styles

Available to:  Students

The Learning Styles application allows you to find out your preferred learning style; Visual (seeing), Auditory (listening) or Kinaesthetic (hands on) based on your response to a series of questions. Once you have taken the test, your preferred learning style will then be visible to your teachers.
 image030
Learning Styles theory dictates that everyone has a preferred way of absorbing information. Some learn better by seeing, some by listening and others by actually doing. The Learning Styles application can help you to identify your preferred Learning Style. Once a learning style has been identified, your teachers can then maximize it to enhance your education. It is important to remember that no one learning style is better than the others; it is all about what works best for you.
