What are the different learning styles and why are paper resources useful?

  • We learn using one or more of the following styles, either by watching (visual learners), by listening (auditory learners) or by doing (kinesthetic learners). 
  • With more & more online learning occurring, the learning styles are focused more on watching and listening, rather than doing.
  • Using a paper resource requires a student to first read what they are being asked to do, follow some instructions, and show some working or write down an answer.
  • Research shows that the act of writing (doing), engages the brain in the learning process, by stimulating your brain to be more actively involved in the learning process.  Typing or using touch on an ipad, on the other hand, involves just pressing or selecting identical looking keys.
  • When using online resources, it if often difficult for anyone to go back and check the work to determine why answers were incorrect.  With a paper based resource, you have a permanent record that can be reviewed anytime.
  • So ….. let’s get back to basics and use good old fashioned pen & paper … as well as the modern devices available!!
