  • The MAJORITY of tests and teaching seems geared more towards "memorizing" the correct answers, rather than "learning" WHY those are the correct answers. I got into amateur radio a few years back, which requires a test based on a pool of 423 to 454 questions for the two license levels and 622 questions for the 3rd top tier, of which you're randomly tested with 35 of those for the first two tests, or 50 questions for the 3rd level and needing a 74% grade to pass. Most people just memorize the correct answers without learning the "why" behind it and quickly forget, vs the people that LEARN the "why" which makes the topic more memorable in the long term.

  • I am a "connection learner". Like only learning the vocabulary didn't worked. We had vocabulary boxes with cards in it. On one side a word in the mothers language on the other side the translation from the second language you are learning. Our teachers said that is the only way to learn a language. But I couldn't get the words in my head. My teachers told me that I was lazy or dumb. It took me 5 years to understand that I need examples, connections. I learned english because I started to read Harry Potter in english. Now I didn't had single words but a whole scene that was connected with them.

  • I thought about this for a while. I think the quibble here is really a semantic one, more than ANYTHING else. If you really want to be rigorous in definition, it's learning PREFERENCE. And I say this as a so-called "visual learner". Can I learn things in other ways? Yes, I can. What do I find preferrable, and easy to digest? Information presented with visuals: text, colors, diagrams, etc. I found this very consistently through my teacher education training, looking at the preferences of my family (wife, kids) and I still believe the concept to be very sound. If anything, I concede the point that it's useful to learn information in a variety of ways, but still, many have a preference for the manner in which they best learn information FIRST.

  • I learn through visual communication exactly like the video I'm watching right now. More evidence to support this are faces and names. Visual information is hard to lie about, but words hold almost no value to me. Psychologically speaking, perhaps it's what stimulates my memory or perhaps it's just my perception of words in general. Either way, I can forget a name in 5 seconds and it'll take years to forget a face. Just thinking about it reminds me that I honestly don't even remember the host's name.

  • I was having a terrible time working with a customer where I could not seem to get my point across. Reflecting on our conversations, I realized he used "auditory" terms in his response like "I hear you" and "that sounds right". I switched up my language to focus on auditory cues and suddenly we "clicked" on what I was trying to convey. I'm a pointy-headed engineer who's never been very good at communication in general and I have studied a lot of techniques to augment my lack of talent as I am a customer-sales engineer, including an area called Neuro-Linquistic Programming (NLP) which does reflect the VARK concepts.

  • There are definitely different learning styles, I experienced that myself in my past. But it's not visual/auditory/etc divided. I for example learn best, when I have a lesson to attend and a teacher is explaining things while showing visual stuff and I take notes. Meanwhile a friend of mine was extremely bad at this. We would sit next to each other in class and he would have extreme trouble following the lesson and absorbing the information. BUT This friend of mine was the best student of the whole school at the end of education. He did this by learning stuff on his own at home. He is a 100% self educating person. Something I struggle a lot with. I don't learn from home work, most of what I learn is the things I absorb in class. I think that is something the school system should take note off and integrate in their teaching systems.

  • Each concept being taught will be best presented in one format or other. I have a personal hole in that theory. I am dyslexic. I have learned to use spell check to be able to pose comments like this. The way I don't learn is by being handed a book. I have to hear or see it first. Then I want the book to confirm what I heard or have seen to help remember it. The bottleneck is creating a place the store the information for recall later. How the compartment is created is the real issue. Once the compartment is created, then the info can start flowing. About age 10 I was looking for something to do. I was told to read a dictionary. I asked why would I want to do that. Without an answer to that question I did not.

  • There's a difference between learning and memorizing. Learning is using what you've memorized in a way that show understandability of it. Just like a computer memorize but doesn't learn. So yeah, you're not a visual learner but a visual memorizer.

  • It's weird that the idea of exactly FOUR learning styles would be considered part of the idea that everyone is unique and different. If so, there should be some 7 billion learning styles. Sure, in theory it is possible to share some aspects with someone else and still be different in other aspects, and thus have a smaller pool of learning styles and still have everyone be different and unique. But learning is such a complex topic, with different ways to learn different things... and since learning generally relies on linking things that are already memorized (e.g. learning a list of words relies on the fact that you already know those words, and would be much different if you tried to learn a list of meaningless random mumbo jumbo), and everyone has different memories, so it makes sense that everyone would learn in a different way than anyone else. Also, I've noticed that there are people who prefer studying on their own, and people who prefer communal learning, although of course some things might be hard to learn solo (say team sports). Still, that certainly sounds like one aspect that differentiates learning styles, yet schools seem to be quite oblivious to this fact :P Somehow the idea of someone learning much faster if they are not forced to go to school doesn't fit well with many teachers xD

  • That wasn't really learning, that was random memorization with no substance or meaning. For example you could've taught them how something works. Like the process of photosynthesis, how an engine works, etc. And then tried a simple 2 minute lecture (auditory) or a lecture with a diagram/animated video on your tablet (visual) etc. Then recalled the information to see how much the remembered.

They will choose to not learn, in other words, because they consciously perceive a mismatch. They've heard a judgment about themselves and taken it to heart.

I learn from experts on ideas and subjects that I am interested in.

  • Interesting video! It leaves me with a question, though: what do we mean by "learning"? In particular, much learning in school is based on memorization of simple facts, formulas, or procedures (heuristics). But learning in the "real world" may favor deeper understanding, or the ability to transform information from one modality to another-and much more. By not clarifying the aspect of "learning" that you're talking about, in my opinion you muddy even further the already muddy waters! You didn't invent the "objective" bent in education: schools have long favored "objective" learning, at the expense of the ability to adapt to new situations, the ability to describe things in new ways, and so much more. But by implicitly accepting the existing ideas about "learning," you miss a chance to put the whole debate on firmer ground. Great scientists (and great writers of fiction or visual artists) don't specialize in memorizing facts or formulas. Instead, they create new ways to conceptualize, to transform, to apply things in new circumstances-and more. I'm an agnostic about "learning styles" as a strict determinant of different kinds of learning. But no results will be definitive until our ideas of "learning" expand beyond the gradable, the objective, and the already known. Instead, let's rework the idea of "learning" to include things worth learning because they advance understanding-not because they are simple or predictable enough to test "objectively." Only then will we be able to have meaningful discussions-and meaningful experiments-on what goes into applying human intelligence to the wider world.

  • The part you don't realize about visual learners is that we learn from facial expressions so if you were reading to them they were following from facial expressions also. And what I have found through time (Getting older) is we learn from all these ways but are better in some ways.. So basically I'm a visual learner and kinestetic and remember if I write it down. But my reading is terrible ,even though I still read a lot. so for reading certain factors make a difference of how well I learn or understand, Am I trying to solve a problem, do I care about the problem, what science is it, is it fictional, is it funny. I don't usually remember fictional since I'm not trying to solve a problem, I love science, but if it's "Flat earth science" even though it's fictional I remember it because it's funny. So emotions play a huge part in what we learn. So disproving these theories or proving them is hard since we all learn from these ways but our level is at different percentages for each learning style, so the test group method won't work. Also emotions are huge. I person who is confident may do better than someone will who has low self esteem, but those emotions can go e muck such as egotistical person or over confident will not learn, where someone who has low self esteem and angry about it and wants to change it they will learn more than the egomaniac. Then you got environment, if you asked me those questions on the streets as apposed to relaxing at home, which of course is emotions but it's still a different factor. Yet being out doors may make one more alert. I could talk about this for a long time, it's a science/psychology that has always interested me, mostly about improving my own learning. The regular scientific method does not always work well with psychology and that's the problem.

  • Learning something is putting you in an environment that is uncomfortable yet still fun to unknowingly learn material by essentially straining yourself whilst still doing something you enjoy, do you love reading? Great how about you try reading something in a different language with reminders of words the more you read a book with same words the more repetitive it is, the more it goes into the brain and you will certainly become bored to an excruciating amount but think about tying your shoes you at least once thought you had It down until you forgot and then shown again its the repetition that makes learning and memorizing the more you read a book with repetitive words like The, It, Is. The more you'll be able to read each day and if there's a word that is not understood look it up and make a reminder so every time you come across it you can always look at the reminder and soon enough it will be saved in your memory to keep reading and understand the language. It's complicated but repetition is the true key to learning instead of one thing for a week and then moving on it should be for as long as they can remember the material just like tying your shoes.

I am a visual student because information in visual format flows, I repeat, flows much faster towards the processing and memorization areas of the brain. I believe this is the information that was missing from the conclusion of your video. Perhaps reworking the brain's working model is needed to explain the brain's individual perceptions of each style. Excellent video! (sorry my english)

  • I really liked this video. I do (though) think that showing the same picture/word at every “round” of the experiment might be why it got easier to say all of the words. If I had to say a combination of words it would be hard the first time I tried.. though it would be easier the second time I tried. Unless the words are different the second time.. making the REAL conclusion of the experiment.. “practice is the best learning method”. Kinda like remembering flashcards.

  • You know what... some people just don't get any benefit from the process of taking notes. I've heard people say that the act of scribbling symbols on paper helps them remember the things that those symbols represent. That's not true for me. Some people do well with memorize/regurgitate. That's not true for me. For me, I understand many things intuitively that other people have to learn, but in order to remember that thing, I need to understand its function. For instance, spelling, for me, is functional. If you can read and understand a word, it doesn't matter to me how its spelled, because I understand how the letters work together to make sounds. In the same way, in math, I need to know how and why the formula works in order to remember it. Some people know things, and other people memorize things. Learning styles are just a nice way to talk about why some rich kids are stupid, and to make sure that teachers focus enough time and energy on making sure that rich stupid kids don't get any disadvantages in school just for being rich and stupid. Its a way to make sure that smart poor kids don't start to feel entitled. Everything is about maintaining the status quo.

  • Obviously every person needs all modes of learning, but couldn’t it be that each person leans a little more on certain modes?

  • Learning is not memorizing, and education is not just learning.

  • As a teacher I would say my ability to motivate pupils was very important, which came from a successful teacher / pupil relationship. Also I have only average intelligence and knew little of my subject when I started teaching. So I had to make great efforts to put across knowledge and I believe I was a much better teacher when my subject knowledge was not great.

  • A school inspector created this idea---but of course! Once again, cutting edge educational theory is devised by someone who never taught a student in their entire useless life!

  • I wonder if there's even more to learning than what is presented here. For example, people like me might want to learn in multiple ways simultaneously. If i hear something AND see it, I tend to remember it better than if I did if I tried either method on its own, and I bet that there are many people out there like me. Just showing me pictures, or only telling me, is not the way I want to learn, and from trial and error, it's not the best for me. And this falls into what many are saying about interest and psychology. If you force me to learn in some particular way, I may lose the interest and the desire to learn that particular subject or topic at that time. If someone is talking to me about something that I would like to learn, then it is better for me to either physically practice a procedure, take notes, or draw diagrams. Otherwise I will forget quickly. My physically doing it, note-taking or drawing it combined with hearing it will seal the deal.
