Unlocking effective communication

Have you ever noticed how some people doodle, some pace, and others listen attentively during conversations? As Kristen and I prepare for our upcoming Teen Decision Mastery class, we’ve been reflecting on an important aspect of teaching and communication: understanding different learning styles. 

There are primarily three types of learners:

Auditory Learners: They absorb information best through listening. They focus on what’s being said and can easily recall spoken instructions.

Visual Learners: They prefer visual aids like pictures and diagrams. They understand and remember information better when it’s presented visually.

Kinesthetic Learners: They need to move and engage physically with the material. They anchor learning in their bodies and learn best through hands-on activities.

Make all the difference!

As communicators, it’s crucial to recognize these learning styles, regardless of their age. Whether you’re talking to a teenager, a young child, or an older adult, noticing their learning preference and communicating in that style can significantly enhance your communication. We might have a preference for how we learn best, we use all of them in learning.

The more you engage in all three styles, the more memorable learning becomes and the easier it is to recall. Next time you’re conversing with someone, observe their learning style and adapt accordingly. It might just make all the difference!
