Key Question Lesson 11.My two preferred learning styles are auditory and kinesthetic. First of all, I prefer auditory learning style because I love music; I listen to music every day and whenever I’m not eating, sleeping, or in the bathroom. In fact, as I’m doing this work right now, I’m listening to music! Second, of all, I do very well in class when the teacher is speaking and explaining, insteadof making us read a book or any type of “text”, or show us a documentary, or a video clip. I like it when the teacher lets us listen to music in class, interact with other students and objects related to course material. The other learning style I prefer is kinesthetic (tactile). That is because I like to move around a lot, (literally, I can’t sit still for 5 mins!). I am outgoing by nature,I enjoy handling precious objects, (without breaking them) and I like to solve problems by physically working through them. I also love to try new things, (especially food). When the teacher gives me permission to move around the class at any time, I like that and when the teacher lets me change my seat every day.2.The most challenging learning style for me is visual. An example of a learning situation that is required to use the visual learning style can be – when the teacher shows a video clip or a documentary or graphs and pictures. This is difficult for me because I can’t visualize or picture words and concepts in my head, I am not a good observer or planner, I don’t like to read and I am easily distracted from a task. 3.If I could create a learning environment that would be the most effective for someone with my preferred learning style, it would be awesome! There would be iPads for every student, as well as a computer laptop, of course, the student couldn’t take it outside of the class. The iPads and laptop will encourage students to learn in my preferred learning style (auditory) because it will be unique, the student can use the technology for researching, asking questions, and clearing misconceptions. I would have a couch or two in the class for students, that can help them by relaxing and get rid of stress. I would have snacks for the students, that will encourage them to learn for a prize. I would have a mp3 player for each student, that way the students can record the teacher's lectures and advantage by taking notes later, or for example, the teacher says “Students, pay attention, what I’m about to say will be on the test.” The students can record that lesson and study it for the test. I would let the students listen to music while the work, that will not bore them out and keep them awake.
