WHAT IS LEARING STYLES?
• Learning styles are the way in which each individual learner begins to concentrate on, process, absorb, and retain new and difficult information. • The most important tool for us when we construct knowledge. • The right way of studying, however, does not exist. • Everybody learns in his individual way, but without knowing this way, i.e. without knowing your preferences, you can’t learn efficiently – sometimes you can’t learn at all.

A Discovery of Learning Styles • Which one are you? • Do you acknowledge the validity of the others? • Do you try to change others to be like you? • Do you appreciate others for what they are and for what you are not? • Can you be all things to all people? .
