Classical View of Learning Styles
  • Auditory
  • learn best through verbal lectures, discussions,
    talking things through and listening to what
    others have to say
  • Visual
  • tend to prefer sitting at the front of the
    classroom to avoid visual obstructions and
    respond best to graphics
  • Kinesthetic
  • learn best through a hands-on approach, actively
    exploring the physical world around them

Updated View of Learning Styles
  • iPod/iPad

  • YouTube
  • Watch humorous videos or music videos while
    studying

    weekends party pictures

What do I mean?

How to Tweak Your Approach
  • "Involving students in discussion fosters
    retention of information, application of
    knowledge to new situations, and development of
    higher-order thinking skills
  • -Higher Education Journal

17
  • Yet 70 to 90 percent of professors use the
    traditional lecture as their primary
    instructional strategy!!!

18
Auditory Learners
  • Prefer to pay attention instead of taking copious
    notes
  • Encourage tape recording
  • Use AV equipment in rooms to self record and
    create a podcast
  • Appreciate being able to hear lecture clearly
  • Mic yourself if in a large lecture hall
  • Enjoy audience polling
  • Ask the audience questions at end of class out
    loud with students responding
  • Post questions so they can listen and not write!

19
Visual Learners
  • The visual learners like to have a general idea
    about what they want to learn before they get the
    details
  • Write a lecture outline on the board so they can
    organize their thoughts
  • Tend to underline using different colors
  • On your board work/ power point use different
    colors to emphasize key things
  • Prefer to recall the pictures that they studied
    when preparing for the exam
  • DRAW! And use figures and videos

20
Kinesthetic Learners
  • Like to touch what they want to learn
  • Bring props whenever possible!
  • Technology that can help the kinesthetic students
    in learning is technology that allows them to
    manipulate tools in the classroom
  • Interactive websites
  • Enjoy teacher interaction
  • Step our from behind the podium and join your
    audience!
  • Ask for students to come to board and solve
    problems

21
iPod/iPad Style
  • The iPod/iPad style can support the three
    learning styles.
  • Allows the kinesthetic learners to touch the
    screen
  • Allows the auditory students to listen to audio
    files
  • Allows visual students to see and download
    pictures

22
YouTube Style
  • Can help auditory students by allowing them to
    hear other voices during the class
  • Allows kinesthetic students to manipulate tools
    in the class(watch video on their PC or handheld
    device)
  • Can help visual students by allowing for pictures
    and other visual aides to be used on the screen
  • Create YouTube video watching mini assignments

23
Facebook Style
  • Create a Facebook fan page for your class
  • Post practice questions before a test there
  • Allows for discussion to occur underneath a post
  • Allows you to send notifications to students
  • They will check this more often!

24
  • Discussion

25
  • What have you tried that has worked?

26
  • What could you try to incorporate/change into
    your teaching strategy?

27
Do all students learn the same way?
  1. Yes, all learn the same way
  2. Mostlearn in a similar manner
  3. Mostlearn in a different manner
  4. Unsure/I do not know

28
Take Away
  • Tweeking your approach is a consequence of
    teaching new generations of students
  • Use Bill Vilberg to help you come up with
    creative ways to update your teaching style or
    lesson plan
  • Poll your students, they give they best feedback
    for you to use in your classes

29
  • Dont be afraid to try something new!
