After taking the VARK Learning Questionnaire, I figured out that I learn effectively through a couple of ways. One is aurally and the other is kinesthetically. I will explain in a couple of short paragraphs about these two strategic ways I use.
Hearing the material several times would be something helpful for me. This is why I love being in study groups where we all make sure we learn together verbally and enthusiastically. This also gives me a chance to be corrected if I am wrong and thus learn from my mistakes. Other ways where I retain the information for a long period of time is when it is being related to a story or an example. This increases my chances of remembering the material. Tip: Repeat the material at least two or three times!
Relating the material to a day-to-day example or maybe a special event would help me remember. Especially when it comes down to experiencing it through the senses. Saying the material in an energetic way with codes on how to retain that information would be helpful. Doing activities, experiments, or even acting it out (in certain cases) that link to the material would increase the likeliness of remembering it. Tip: Doing something active in the class which relates to the material is something I prefer to do!
