Did you know that we have the ability to learn way more effectively when teaching is delivered via a dynamic approach designed beyond traditional course outcomes? Data from a recent study showed how well students respond to this highly specific style of education.
In a comparative study, a school that taught with a social and emotional learning (SEL) foundation integrated with normal teaching had a 57% improvement in skill development for its students compared to schools that didn’t. The benefits of teaching in a way that encourages students while supporting their individual learning needs is reflected in results that show a personalised study approach is essential for both students and their educators. Study International says, “Shifting the focus onto a wide range of skills such as SEL, rather than just broad academic abilities, the world of teaching has become multi-faceted and open to new ways of thinking.”
Despite popular belief, study that is truly effective and productive is not wholly based on inherent or assumed natural intelligence — the delivery and revision approach taken is fundamentally important. Regardless of experiences in formal learning environments, people aren’t simply academic nor non-academic. Real learning occurs in multifaceted ways that surpasses the information itself, with this fact of timeliness with many children and adults currently studying remotely via online learning modes. The truth is that there is extensive value in investigating and concluding your learning style – be it visual, auditory or kinesthetic (tactile) – for overall communication, learning new skills, and achieving goals. It can also help minimise frustrations, make you more adaptive when your default approach isn’t proving effective, and prioritise an environment that supports your social interpersonal or solitary intrapersonal style.
To assist learners everywhere, Study Medicine Europe developed this infographic, ‘How To Study Smarter By Discovering Your Learning Style’. They shared this as a strategic explainer to enlighten and explain the science of learning to help individuals achieve their best in order to progress in your qualifications and career. As a 101 on learning styles, better study methods, advice on getting your work done, and technical advice that supports the path to success, this is a great starter guide. Invest in understanding and exploring more about how you learn so that you can study smarter, not harder.
