Dylan Bishop-Berry Ski 220 Core Concepts Chapter Two: Discovering Your Students Sensory contribution to learning: Learning occurs as our body and mind experiences new feelings, sights and sounds, this is referred to as sensory contribution. There are three senses that contribute largely into ones learning, they are visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Being able to perceive objects correctly as they move through space is called vision. Young children often has very sharp vision, but they can’t breakdown movements as well as in older individual. This is something to keep in mind when teaching a young inexperienced group of students. Older people tend to lose depth perception, adaptation to light, focus closely, color distinction, peripheral vision, and glare toleration. This can make demonstration teaching ineffective with seniors. Sound allows us to pinpoint where something is. Auditory senses are typically perfect at birth, and deteriorate as individuals’ age. Younger children with excellent hearing can get easily distracted because background noises are easily audible to them, so they hearing a lot of different noises rather than focusing on one noise. At the age of 50 most people hearing become less acute then before, distinguishing between sounds, and separation background noise can become difficult. Kinesthetic learning is broken into two subgroups sense of motion, and feeling or touch. Sense of motion is part of the vestibular system which controls balance and the sense of movement. The primary function of the vestibular system is to sense the relationship between the head and the group. The proprioceptive system is also part of part of balance and provides our body with its orientation in space. 1

Dylan Bishop-Berry Development of Mental Processes: When a new experience occurs the brain produces a memory of that experience that allows the brain to think about the experience and understand it. Later in life the brains ability to perform this task effectively and efficiently decreases, ones reaction to changes in terrain, speed, and light may suffer greatly. Learning Styles and Preferences: Learning styles are created in a person based on how that person, receives, evaluates, and absorbs information. Knowing how your student learns greatly increases your ability to teach that students effectively. Jensen divided the learning process into four categories: Readiness- the environment the learning is taking place in; Reception- the sensory input mode that is most effective for the learner; Processing- the way an individual evaluates information given; Reaction- how the learner uses the information. David Kolb developed his own theory on learning styles in 1971; his theory has two broad categories: perception and processing. Perception is how one learns from the world by collecting information. This perception has two learners at each of end of the perception continuum, the big picture learners, and the parts learners. Processing is how we break down information in a way that helps us learn it. Some of
