Jacob D. Hanson Prof. Wayne Reitz ME 189 9/19/10 There are generally three types of learning styles; visual, auditory, and Tactile/Kinesthetic. I learn through all these styles but the majority of the things I learn are through the Tactile/Kinesthetic style. I like using my hands or at least seeing someone else do something with their hands. I learn best doing, not by seeing or hearing. Tactile/Kinesthetic learners learn and comprehend best through hands on activities. They learn through doing, as opposed to hearing or seeing. Labs and other non-lecture based classes are the best way for tactile/kinesthetic based learners to fully understand the material. Once tactile/kinesthetic learners do something one time they generally know how to do it again the next time, but when they hear it or see it, however, they generally take longer to fully understand.

Unformatted text preview: Tactile/Kinesthetic learners learn differently than visual and auditory learners, therefore tactile/kinesthetic learners should use alternative study methods. To memorize tactile/kinesthetic learners should use flash cards, pictures, and charts. Pacing and fidgeting can also help to stay focused and to memorize. It is also recommended that tactile/kinesthetic learners take many breaks and that they study in more of a lounging or lying position. Tactile/Kinesthetic learners should sit near the front of the classroom to better fathom what is being taught.
