what is kinaesthetic?

Posted: 02-10-12 19:34 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

kinaesthetic learner is a person who learns by moving the body for example, tapping feet, walking when reading notes etc..

just did the test and apparently I'm auditory, I thought I learn more like a visual learner.

i guess you can make your results more accurate by doing several different quizzes

I always like to test myself whenever I can.

As I suspected, I am, according to that test, an auditory learner :P

Question for you guys:

Do you think that you need to know what kind of learner you are?

For those of you who have had to do a "learning styles" test at school, how was this information used and did you/do you find it useful?

In the teaching world it's something that's batted around but I'm never sure how helpful it is for my students.

 I have always thought it is a bit stupid putting labels on how you learn as they don't always fit, I did the test and my results were very mixed. I came out as a auditory learner but I don't find it easy to learn my sounds, I just like to write everything down, thats how I remember things and it worked for my gcse's.

If I'm honest that test which I did, I would have chosen options which weren't even on the vote.

I think it is better to find how you best revise on your own. I think teachers should encourage a diverse range of options and then once all of the main ways of revising are implemented into lessons, students should be able to find which one suits them.

For me, it is mostly writing things out over and over again, but can become quite tedious when doing long essays - something which has only recently become apparent in Year 10.

In 6 weeks we have done 2 English controlled assessments and are scheduled to do another next week, meaning we only have around 3 days to write our first draft of our controlled assessments - which is fine but when it is added to the abundance of homework that we recieve it becomes rather strenuous - I have actually got to write another controlled assessment by tomorrow which is 1k words, ugh!

Because of this, I feel I am forced to revert to another revision method due to time, reading out paragraphs over and over again until I remember it because it is quicker. I feel that will hinder my results when I have to take my exams, but I just have to do what I can and make do. :(

Windowswind just looked at your profile and i see that you want to be a teacher, me too although not maths or ict for me proberly geography or english

Posted: 15-10-12 19:48 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

I always considered History to be more interesting then Geography (although Geography is considerably easier in my opinion). English... although I am 1 of 5 boys in the top set, I still don't feel I would be qualified enough to teach it, and I find it very tedious, except for the creative aspect of it. Unfortunatley, a lot of the course seems to be either surrounding shakespeare or analyzing aspects of a multitude of texts. The only creative writing section of it is, to me, not creative writing as I percieve it to be story writing, rather than being forced to write withing a certain fixed range, and being told the target audience and plot of the 'story'. :P

I would much prefer to teach geography as I would be better at it cause I enjoy it, I always find that a good teacher enjoys teaching the subject as much as we enjoy learning it, I can tell this from some of my teachers I have.

Posted: 15-10-12 20:15 by Thegirlwhoknewtoomuch - Team GR

As can I, which is the primary reason why I've decided I would like to teach Maths and I.C.T :)

P.S I like Mika too :P

That's a good point as surely it should be about finding techniques that work for you rather than sticking you into a box? Have you tried playing music in the background whilst you're working?

When I did my GCSEs I started listening to the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack when I was working (the new version of the film had recently been released) and I did that all of the way through my A levels, undergrad degree, PGCE and I still do it now when I need to focus. I never listen to this soundtrack at any other time other than when I'm working and I think over the 10 years or so that I've been doing it, I've developed an association with this music and working. Most of my revision and the way I work is writing things out and condensing notes into smaller and smaller things, but I like the music side of auditory learning.
