There are three main learning styles that I’m focusing on in most of the videos here and whatnot and that is auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. I understand there are a lot of different learning styles, some that include purely intellectual or music and artistic but for the higher level meta approach to that are the visual, the audio, and the kinesthetic.
Now, if you’re a kinesthetic learner you have a preference for being involved and not watching, not just listening, but getting hands on or interacting with things with your body, your fingers, your feet, general senses besides just sight and sound.
Watch the video or read the transcription:

Or save the audio for later, if you’d prefer:

Really the best way you’re going to learn stuff if you fall into this category of learning preference is going to do things that involve you, it’s not applicable everywhere, but like group projects or exercises. That’s something that gets you out of the desk and working with objects or post it notes on a board or if you can and its relevant, adventure learning.
For instance, anyone that’s learning about nature and that’s a kinesthetic preference would probably get a much better appreciation out of a museum trip or hiking through a nature trail that’s marked and with a book or a guide that helps them learn firsthand or any number of props and tactile configurations that basically put the learning right there in front of you to where you can see all angles at your own pace.
Now, this isn’t always going to be possible but especially in the internet age but if you can find interactive training courses online that have quizzes or maybe video interfaces and team collaborations through WebEx or Google Hangouts or whatnot, those are going to be your best bet.
Yes, I understand it’s a combination of visual and audio but for this new virtual world where it’s about as hands off as you can get, interacting with quizzes or forums or pieces that you can put together with other people to make a finished product or approach to learning is going to be your best bet, at least online.
Offline, you’ve got old school seminars, get-togethers, meetups, outdoor stuff, and [00:03:02.6] stuff. Those are your options. You’ll find out what works best for you but those are good first places to start. Good luck and when you focus on what learning style fits best with your preferences it sticks better, you recall better, and it’s just more fun. So, look for it, align yourself with it, and get more good learning in your head. Okay? All right, I hope this helped. Peace out. Bye.
