She began with praising her work ‘Training’ and said she is passionate about it. She started the session with a question about the theme of the session ‘What’s Your Style’ and mentioned that everyone present in the session would be thinking about what style she is going to talk about? Would it be
Hairstyle, dressing style, living style or what style?
She unveiled that she is going to talk about the most important style which is ‘Learning Style’ and why it is important for everyone!
She stated that a human brain is a machine. What you order, what you practice…brain will follow. All information enters our brain in three main ways: Hearing, Seeing & Touch. The one which we use more becomes our style. How do you understand, how do you comprehend, how do you access and how do you retain information becomes your learning style. As no one is the same, hence so is the learning style. Our Learning Style depends upon cognitive factors, emotional factors and environmental factors and any experience of our life.
Did she toss a question to the audience, when exactly we started learning, which era? One of the participants answered that learning starts in the womb itself. She echoed with it and clarified that when we are in the womb, nobody trains us except God. Learning is an ongoing process, either one is a baby, toddler, pre-scholar, scholar, adolescent, teenager, youth and old aged. Every phase of our life teaches us new lessons and experience is the best teacher.
Next, she talked about different types of learning and displayed a slide which mentioned ‘Life Cycle of a Butterfly’ which includes a process called metamorphosis, which involves four stages namely ‘from eggs, larva, pupa & finally into a butterfly’ and asked which is your favourite part of all these stages to which our host answered ‘Butterfly’.
With this, she revealed that this is our first style of learning, known as ‘Visual Learning’. This learning style is followed by people who use maps, diagrams or pictures. She added that according to research, children in the age of 3-8 years begins to form. Children up to the age of 5 years create a blueprint in their minds. She added that although this is a great style as people feel the idea, create the story but this style has a weakness ‘Lack of visibility & vision’.
The next slide had some pictures which she asked what are these? She revealed that with this she was checking observation. She came with another slide with a tongue twister and was told that this is another style of learning known as ‘Verbal or Linguistic Learning’. This learning style is followed by people who take the use writing, speaking, linguistic skills. The weakness of verbal learners is a lack of visualization (mind mapping).
Next, she talked about ‘Kinaesthetic learning’. These are the people who are hyper learners. These people cannot sit at a place or stick to something for a longer duration as they want to feel, demonstrate rather than explain and may be a cause of distraction for others. She added that a learning style with the power of touch is more helpful in perceiving the information.
She added that ‘Social Learning’ is another aspect and this is vital as socializing makes a powerful impact and she gave the example of Dr Gaurav Sharma who is very good at making the connection. She told that this is only possible with great interpersonal skills and how you connect and approach others. These people are great connectors and transfer beneficial knowledge. The only thing to be remembered here is that the communication here should not be mere gossiping.
She highlighted that there are Solitary learners as well and they are the people who are independent, introspective and engage in self-learning.
Last but not the least, she told about the Auditory Learners who are known for learning by hearing. These people love listening, reading, understanding things and hear information and respond best to the spoken instructions. The weakness of them to is visualization.
While concluding the session, she asked the participants to reveal what kind of learner they are to which many participants responded. She also highlighted this session was dedicated to the ‘VAK’ model – Visual, Auditory & Kinaesthetic model. Learning is all about moving from ordinary to extraordinary.
At last, Dr Ina Singh gave the vote of thanks to Dr Supriya Kumaravelan for giving her precious time on Thunderbolts and shared her insights on this vital topic – ‘What’s Your Style??’.
Dr Sanjeev Kapoor, Chairperson of Positive Thoughts Family congratulated the entire group and mentioned that the leaders in this group have demonstrated the quality to grow and help others to grow along with. He also congratulated Dr Shanthi Saravanan for her world record in contemporary arts.
