May Knowledge Translation Theme: Learning Styles

Chinese philosopher and reformer Confucius (551-479 BCE) is credited with
stating “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” It’s
important to remember that this quote names all three types of learning. It’s not just the
doing that brings understanding. We all have different strengths in how we learn. It is
often stated that there are three learning styles- auditory, visual and kinesthetic. That’s
why we show activities, we verbally explain them and we get children or families or
assistants to trial activities.

Our ability to learn is affected by our emotional and mental well-being. This is true both
for the families we serve, and for ourselves. Stress, anxiety and emotional instability can
affect concentration and hinder learning. Effective education needs to take these things
into consideration.
