Today’s Daily Prompt is one I cannot resist. As a lifelong learner I should be able to recognise my strengths and weaknesses.
When it comes to learning, it seems to me that the more senses which are involved the better.
Having said that, I prefer radio to TV. However, in a lecture theatre or church building, a presentation involving speech, visual aids and the opportunity to take notes is best for me. If bullet points are used, so much the better. I might even remember without notes.
So I like to listen, look and write, which involves touch.
I enjoy private study, which mostly means surfing the internet or consulting reference books. I remember which of the books on my shelves have particular craft projects in them or particular recipes.
Read, learn and inwardly digest was a phrase I grew up with. How do you learn best?
What’s your learning style? Do you prefer learning in a group and in an interactive setting? Or one-on-one? Do you retain information best through lectures, or visuals, or simply by reading books?
