Types of Learning

Learning is the goal of teaching; the more a student learns, the more successful a teacher is in their work. Learning is a continuous process that begins with an individual’s birth and continues until death. We are all engaged in learning endeavours in order to develop our adaptive capabilities in response to the changing environment. Learning involves a behavioural change that can be positive or negative. This behavioural modification should occur as a result of practice and experience. The learning process is concerned with experience acquisition, retention of experiences, and experience development in a step-by-step manner, as well as the synthesis of both old and new experiences in order to create a new pattern. 

Types of learnings: 

  • Visual learning: You can learn by reading or looking at pictures. Things are understood and remembered visually.
  • Auditory learning: Hearing and listening help you learn. You comprehend and remember what you have heard.
  •  Kinesthetic learning: a learning style in which students learn by doing physical activities rather than listening to lectures or watching demonstrations.
  • Reading/writing learning: They would rather read notes, handouts, and textbooks to learn information. These students consult dictionaries and other reference materials. They can also benefit from silently rewriting and rereading notes.

In a classroom scenario, the teacher should incorporate different types of learning modes so that students can benefit from it
