What is Your Learning Style?

Hi everyone, As we all know there are lots of learning styles. What is the most effective overall? Some people like reading books as a different way of learning. I believe video and audio based training is the best way to learn because it is like having someone there teaching you. I hope schools will eventually become all online and interactive because it reduces car emissions, gas money, parking, and most importantly, getting up early! It may lead to better grades.

I think I learn best when I practice testing my abilities rather than just by reading the material...I guess you could say that being able to experience it firsthand is also a good way for me to have an instant recall. I find myself having more difficulty recalling things, I don't know if it's because of sensory overload of the just that I'm not interested in that area... =)

I once went to a school that was a mixture of online lessons and lessons in a classroom, and to me that was the perfect learning style. I enjoyed studying online, especially because of the flexibility. I also had a job, and when I worked during the day I could study at night, and when I worked at night I could study during the day, and that was very convenient for me. Every month we had 3 days at a real school, and I enjoyed that, too. If we had any questions we could ask the teachers, and some things are easier to understand when you listen to a teacher in a real classroom. We also had the chance to talk about any other problems we had during the online lessons, but the best part of the lessons in the classroom was the fact that we met our classmates in real life instead of just chatting with them.

I also believe the audio and video learning,because in that type of learning we get more ideas,somebody teaching we listen that so, that is the good learning.reading the books, listening others also way for the learning.

Hi knowledgeocity, Hmmm...u seem to like to learn...based on your id-name..haha. Studying at home is not a valid reason to cut cost or reduce emissions. Then why don't I suggest that all students must attend schools within their neighbourhood so that they are all within walking or cycling distances..haha. Why don't we suggest that all aircraft acrobatic flying training to stop or ban them...wouldn't that be a much better way to cut down on emmissions?? Do you know how much fuel an aircraft uses compared to cars? I don't think we need them anyway. They are more like liabilities than assets.

I agree to your apoint a little.You takes notes of the envrionment protection,but you are not notoce the lazy psycology,when a student learning through online at home alone,no one know wether he is studying,also no one urge him to study,this is negative .I am not reject the new things emerging,I think we should use a new learning style perfectly.
