MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES CHECKPOINT Link 1 : http://www.visualspatial.org/what_is_a_vsl.htm Link 2 : http://www.gifteddevelopment.com/Visual_Spatial_Learner/vsl.htm Link 3 : http://giftedservices.com.au/visualthinking.html A visual-spatial learner learns by seeing images of things. They are very good at following written directions, as long as they are detailed correctly. A visual learner is good at building things, doing puzzles, and they are usually very creative individuals. They visualize what they are reading or hearing, so they can better absorb the information. Site one seems to hit visual-spatial learning right on the nose.

Visual-learners have a hard time comprehending words, which makes it hard to accomplish an assignment, or to follow spoken directions at work. These problems can lead to low grades in school, and less chance of promotions or being trusted with a difficult task at work. I definitely do not agree that all visual-spatial learners are highly intelligent....
