DifferentWays of Learning

Whatare different ways that people learned in these movies?

Afterwatching the montage video clips, it is clear that they are differentways of learning. For instance, in the first clip we see the teacherusing kinesthetic learning style to teach children to look at thingsin different ways. I can see boy learning to play chase throughobservation (visual learning) we see evidence of the boy laterplaying chase from what he saw. In the second video clip there is alot of talking. I would call this kind of learning auditory learningwhereby the information is retained through hearing and speaking.Another way that people learned in these movies is a teacher in classencouraging the student to learn by thinking for themselves. I wouldcall this kind of learning logical learning whereby the students arebeing encouraged to understand the facts behind the contents. Thiskind of learning helps one to capture the bigger picture. Still onthe third clip we see some ladies learning to spell through practice.I would still categorize this kind of learning under the logicallearning since they are doing system thinking thus gaining theability to understand the bigger picture. Aural learning and sociallearning and kinesthetic learning are the three kinds of learningtaking place in the last clips.

Whatevidence could you see in the movies that people were learning?

Theteacher demonstrates (evidence) to the student by stepping on thetable and asking the student to do the same (kinesthetic). Still onthe same clip I see a man connected to a computer and a fightingprogram is installed in his brain this is a kind of cognitivelearning whereby learning is done by visual from the computer.Evidence of auditory learning: we see the young boy listening to aman who holds a certificate of master’s of the chase as he explainsto him how to be the best chase player. Moving on to the next part wesee the students learning by listening to a fellow student readingout from the textbook.

Theevidence for aural, social and kinesthetic learning are as follows:kinesthetic here we see an instructor who is encouraging the studentto learn to dance through demonstrations. The student dance as heinstructs them what to do and how to it thus making the student learndancing fast. Aural learning can be seen by seeing how the studentdance movement responds to the music the children thus are learningby listening and visualizing which dance movement should go with themusic. Social learning also referred to as interpersonal wherebylearning is taking place in a group.

Metaphor:Learning is a journey this means that learning is full of newdiscoveries, for instance, the student in class discovers to see athing in a different perspective by standing on the table. Moreover,the young boy who wants to learn Chase discovers that Chase is aboutpatience and using a formula to attack.

Whatare factors that helped or hindered people from learning?

Factorsthat helped people to learn include demonstration whereby the studentin the class learned from the teacher’s demonstration. Anotherfactor that helped in learning was through participation whereby thelearners learned by taking part in the learning process. Forinstance, the boy appearing in first video clips learned to playchase by taking part in playing it.

Metaphor:Oneof the factors that hindered learning was learning irrelevant thingssuch as the introduction of a book and it’s author this was beatingaround the bush thus the reason the teacher in the video clips askedthe students to tear the introduction part out.

Tosum up, it is clear from the montage video clips that there noone-size-fits-all approach that can be used to learn. From theteacher in the first clips to the dance instructor in the last clipswe see that different learning styles work differently for differentpeople.
