My learning ability solely depends on hands on activity. I know this information through experience and also have confirmed it from a recent online quiz on Brainboxx.
Being a Kinaesthetic learner, the joy of learning comes when I can practice what has been taught on pages. I would say I’m more of a converging learner. ” People with a converging learning style can solve problems and will use their learning to find solutions to practical issues. “( Kolb, Learning styles). In my case, I love to take my music books out, read and play along, work in my home studio and recreate the techniques I learn on YouTube and also go to the studio and practice what has been taught in class. By doing this all the information and guidelines are registered well in my mind. If there is a piece of paper in front of me, it just doesn’t make any sense to me unless I can see the reality of it.
The practicality of knowledge is what I need to learn and practice. It makes me a better learner.
