The Difference Between Visual and Auditory Learners

The Difference Between Visual and Auditory Learners: Get to Know Their Different Learning Strategies

People have two different learning preferences. Some are more inclined to learn things through reading while others absorb information better when this is explained to them verbally. Educators classify these two types of learning as visual and auditory.

Auditory learners deal best with information that they can hear. They are more engaged when they listen to music, other sounds, and discussions.

Visual learners are the opposite. They absorb information better when they are presented in diagrams, charts, pictures, and images. They connect the information through its visual representation and learn through this method.

The Different Learning Strategies by Visual and Auditory Learners

Auditory learners and visual learners have different learning strategies and strengths. As such, they are inclined to use different tools.

For example, since auditory learners understand things better through sound, they respond better to teaching strategies such as lectures, music through the use of beats, rhymes, or songs to reinforce information, and the use of mnemonic devices.

They ask questions during class and understand the answers better when they are delivered by their professor or classmates orally. They also thrive in group discussions.

Teachers who understand this usually spend time with auditory learners, providing them verbal summaries of lectures at the end of the class.

On the other hand, visual learners are those who take in information better when they see it. While auditory learners would like directions to be given them orally, visual learners would prefer seeing an actual map or pictures of the location to understand where they are headed.

Visual learners prefer the use of PowerPoint presentations, pictures, charts, diagrams, maps, and outlines when taking in information. They also learn when they watch people performing tasks such as fixing a leak or cooking a particular dish.

Visual learners usually take down notes during class and use these to review key points of the lecture later on. They are also more inclined toward learning through visual cues that are familiar to them. Audiovisuals, study cards, flashcards, movies, and other shows are important assets in their learning.

Help the Disadvantaged Achieve Their Dreams

Whether through visual or auditory learning, education certainly plays a huge role in achieving success in life.

Unfortunately, many impoverished and disadvantaged individuals in the country do not have access to educational tools that can help uplift their lives. As a result, they are mired in poverty.

The good news is that you can help them achieve their dreams without having to spend a single buck.
