Humans are visual, kinesthetic and aural creatures. Those are the three main ways we collectively learn. Most people prefer to learn two of those three ways, even if they do not know it consciously. One way will be the primary learning method, and another will be a secondary way.
- Learn from seeing, such as through notes/ written word, slideshows, videos, etc.
- Learn from being shown a process, such as a walkthrough training or even videos.
- Learn from being told, such as through verbal instruction.
This is, of course, just a nutshell discussion of learning methods. I’ll expand upon this post in the future by covering tools that cater to each learning method.
