In order to maximise the learning potential of your students you must first make sure that you are offering them an environment and a curriculum that allows them to learn in way that suits them.
If we only offer teacher at the front, desks facing the board, then we are unfortunately failing a large majority of our students. Leading to disconnected and uninspired students.
There are many ways we as teachers can provide these environments to our students. Here are the 7 ways in which our children learn and ways we can assist them.
• Visual (spatial):prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding. (Visual library flash cards)
• Aural (auditory-musical): prefer using sound and music. (Headphones linked to podcasts)
• Verbal (linguistic): prefer using words, both in speech and writing. (Library, group discussion/debate)
• Physical (kinesthetic): prefer using your body, hands and sense of touch. (Drama and theatre)
Logical (mathematical): prefer using logic, reasoning and systems. (Montessori maths materials)
Social (interpersonal): prefer to learn in groups or with other people. (Team projects)
Solitary (intrapersonal): prefer to work alone and use self-study. (Single desks available)
