What Kind of Learner am I?
My learning profile
I have been a student for a long time so I have an understanding of what it is like to sit in a variety of classes with a variety of teaching styles. I can bring in techniques from teachers that I enjoyed and learn what not to do from teachers I did not enjoy. As someone with ADHD I get distracted easy so I can understand how much students need to be stimulated so that will pay attention and get the information they need from a lecture. I will use my understanding of the varied types of learners to help my students by presenting information in different ways for my students. I will make sure that I speak to others that have a different learning profile than myself before I do my lessons to get their input on my lessons so that I do not present my lessons in a way that is reflective of the way I learn. I will use various styles of diagnostics to evaluate whether or not my students are benefiting from the way I am teaching. I can use my interest in water related activities to mix in various practical examples for my students. I can also use things like orienteering from Scouting as an example for linear relationships.
