Learn Your Way
Everyone has a predominant learning style, or even a mix of styles. Decide which type of learning is most effective for you:
You find it easier to learn from graphics, videos, cartoons, diagrams, webinars or infographics.
You’ll pick an MP3 file or a podcast over a webinar or article any day!
You need to learn “hands on”—by doing things, touching them; jumping right into a new platform or software
You prefer the written word—transcripts, written instructions, articles—in fact, you can read an article faster than you can watch a video.
Once you have determined your best learning style or styles, honour it. Get rid of that written “To do” list if verbal learning is last on your preferences list. Dictate that article, if you’re an aural learner. Draw little icon-pictures instead of writing things down or use a mind-map, if you’re a visual learner.
If you cater to your preferred learning style(s) you will find that tasks flow easier and you remember things better, leaving you with more time, focus and energy.
