We each learn and route information in different ways. Most teachers talked to us, and we answered their questions. Schools taught one way and didn't assist or encourage us to learn our unique styles.There are many different techniques to classify learning styles such as perceptual modality, information processing, and personality patterns. Perceptual modalities define biologically based reactions to our physical environment and represent the way we most efficiently adopt data. We should learn our perception style so we can seek out information in the format that we process most directly. Information processing distinguishes between the way we sense, think, solve problems, and remember

Introduction.When learning anything as an adult, a person can start to question themselves as to whether they can still learn. The adult learner is different because they participate actively, using past experiences and pool resources between mentor and apprentice. Knowing how each individual learns will be the key to their success when returning to school or learning a new task at work. There are three basic types of learning styles, visual learners, tactile learners, and auditory learners.Tactile learners have certain character traits that can be recognized by others. They are found holding or twirling a pen in a classroom setting. They often communicate through body movements. Tactile

Learning Styles: Know and Use Your Personal Learning Style
By Grace Fleming, About.com
Your learning style may be the single most important key to improving your grades.
Students learn in many ways, like seeing, hearing, and experiencing things first hand. But for most students, one of these methods stands out.
Why is this important? Research has shown that students can perform better on tests if they change study habits to fit their own personal learning styles.
For example, visual-learning students will sometimes struggle during essay exams, because they can’t recall test material that was “heard” in a lecture.
However, if the visual learner uses a visual aid when studying, like a

However, it should be considered that learning styles are different for everyone. To exemplify the point most people learn using a combination of these styles. Learning styles include reading, videos (visual), practical learning (Kinaesthetic), sound recording (Aural), words in speech and written (Verbal) (Gravells 2008). Furthermore, it can be argued that individuals whom have learning difficulties such as dyslexia or a hearing impairment to name a few

However, they may be useful to language learning and teaching institutes and educators in the development of new language learning approaches in line with student preferences.IntroductionToday, the number of international students studying at English language schools in Australia is increasing rapidly month by month. For effective English learning, both learner skills and attitudes should be considered. Students should be provided with the opportunity to assess their English learning preferences.During the past decade, several studies have been conducted on language learning styles.

The foundation of learning process is the learning orientation, which defines his or hers educational realization (Dunn et al., 1977). One of the most common definitions of “learning styles” defines the term as diverse form of behaviour made of cognitive, effective and psychological factors that present the appropriate indicators of the learners’ observation, collaboration and reaction to the learning environment (Curry, 1981).

As stated in the quote when using technology, learning is much more self directed which help students obtain information more effectively. Students are able to expand on what their learning rather than sticking to what must be learnt in a classroom, through technology they are able to research more and gather more information.

Parenting Styles and How It Affects Academics
There are various types of parenting styles. Authoritative, neglectful, permissive, authoritarian, or a mix of both. Either way, the type of discipline parents choose, will affect a child’s development greatly. This will continue throughout adulthood, influencing mood and behavior. Each of the different parenting styles have different techniques that help them differentiate from each other.
“Because I said so.” This phrase best summarizes authoritarian parenting. These types of parents expect children to follow the rules and not to question (Morin, 2016, para. 5). They enforce very strict rules and children

Summary: A research study that was conducted by researchers from Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Tsinghua University in China to demonstrate that online classes are on par with classes that are taught in the classroom. The methodology in this study was to take an existing class that is offered at MIT and have one group of students take it in a traditional classroom setting while another group take it fully online. To identify the effectiveness between the two learning styles, researchers analyzed test results, homework, and responses to

them. Some of these different types of learning include: visual, hands on , auditory, written, and kinesthetic. The great thing about Problem-Based Learning is that its gives the student the opportunity to learn regardless of what type of learner they are by it covering all of the basic learning styles to fit everyone's needs. "Active, interactive, and collaborative learning on which Problem-Based Learning is based, allows an instructor the rare opportunity to observe students learning process." (De Gallow, Grant 2000) These three types of learning are used in schools all over the world to help prepare students for their health care careers.

It is important that practitioners provide different forms of play, such as symbolic play, object play or role play, to create different culture environments for learning.
