What's Your Learning Style?

The theory of multiple intelligences has captured the attention of many educators who are interested in how students learn. While the theory hasn't been corroborated by research, many teachers find it helpful to better understand the abilities of their students.

I agree that integrating technology is no longer futuristic, but present. However, I also see the importance of maintaining some levels of direct learning. I'm concerned about losing the common touch, and losing the emotional and psychological benefits of personal (eye to eye) interaction between teacher and student. I am obviously of the old school, and see the value of maintaining old school values. However, I have begun integrating both teaching styles in my biblical studies curriculum and lesson plans.

Sorry, you editors and contributors (and users, too) but all is not well with the "What's Your Learning Style?" quiz. I had a "huh?" moment when my interpersonal score came up as high as my other areas. Then I reviewed the questions. Not one of them referrred to what is usually considered interpersonal intelligence, which involves placing value on and interest in conversation, exchanging information and confidences with others, feeling comfortable with others feelings and thoughts, enjoying activities more which involve others, and helping others. Whoops! No wonder some folks feel that multiple intelligences is not a very scientific approach to understanding personality and learning.

Alexis,
As a freshman, you should explore career opportunities, but you have some time to figure out what interests you. Knowing your learning styles will help as well, such as, if you're a naturalistic learner then perhaps an outdoor job, such as civil engineer, botanist,ior archeologists, might be of interest to you. If you love to move around, you might not want to consider a desk job. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities to talk to professionals and shadow workers throughout your high school years. I'm a broadcast journalist who didn't decided my career path until I was a junior in high school. I thought I would become a teacher, but changed my mind after I realized that television journalism was suited to my interests -- research, discovery, visuals, storytelling,curiosity and working indoors and outdoors. I enjoy it so much that it never feels like "work." It's nice to have an idea of what you want to do so you can focus on taking classes that improve your strengths .... as well as weaknesses. Take challenging courses with that in mind. I took speech as well as more writing classes. Hope this helps ... and good luck!

I'm trying to figure out my learning style. There are three learning style that I feel I can fall under, by the things I like to do. They are visual-spatial, intrapersonal and interpersonal. My question is can I be all three? Waiting on some advice

After taking the quiz i soon found out that i am a Intrapersonal learner. That means that I am intuitive and typically introverted.Which means I'm skillful at deciphering my own feelings and motivations. Those are the typical qualities of an intrapersonal learner. Due to the fact that I'm an intrapersonal learner I prefer to work alone. After researching the qualities of an intrapersonal worker; I felt as if I was staring my self in the face. It was a direct list of all my qualities. But all in all i enjoyed the test; it was very helpful.

Valerie had some very helpful commenst. Since Edutopia typically just focuses on K-12 education, we don't have a lot of college resources but here's a few I know of:

1) I did a quick Google search of quizzes that may be helpful: http://bit.ly/oHCjlr.

2) This year I met someone who worked for Campus Explorer, a website that lets you explore colleges and universities and has some pretty useful resources: http://www.campusexplorer.com/

Hope this helps and good luck in your search!

I am a bit confused. Could someone please tell me how to read the results of the "What is my Learning Style?" quiz?
Do we simply choose the Learning Style in which we scored the highest?
