Running with the theme from earlier this week regarding study tips for auditory learners, I did not want to leave out our tactile/kinesthetic friends to! Below you can find some study strategies that are helpful for those learners who learn best with their hands and by “doing”:
● Hold the book/module/chapter in your hand while reading (instead of laying it on a table)
● Write while you are reading (or take notes after you read each section)
● Practice breathing slowly
● Write with fingers in sand
● Write lists repeatedly (great for learning vocabulary words!)
● Use a computer to reinforce learning by using the sense of touch (Our online Resource Center is perfect!)
● Use rhythm (beats) to memorize information
● Make flashcards for each step in a procedure. Put the cards in order until the sequence becomes automatic.
● And of course, any time a learner can physically implement what they are studying, the better!
While I am primarily a visual learner, I do need to be physically involved in the learning process if I am ever going to retain new information. This means I need to touch/hold the information I need to read and retain. Our Comprehensive Learning Modules are available online on our Resource Center to print either in their entirety or a chapter at a time through "Printable Resources". Note-taking, hi-lighting, and creating flashcards are also hands-on activities to aid in the learning process that I personally use and recommend.
