The Visual Learner
If you are a visual learner, try these techniques:
•
Write key facts on different colour cards (e.g. grouped in to topics) – you can then lay
them out in front of yourself.
•
Aim to visualise what you are learning – sit back and try to see a picture of the ideas or
information.
•
Write down important facts on Post-it notes and stick them in key places! E.g. Mirror, TV
etc.
•
Use mind maps, pictures, cartoon story boards, photos & diagrams to summarise
information.
•
Use illustrated books from the library.
•
Search the internet for interactive learning sites that feature diagrams
and pictures.
Key Stage 4 Information Evening 2014
Learning How to Revise
Auditory Learner.
If you are an auditory learner, try these techniques:
• Summarise the topic in your own words, talking through the key themes as you do so.
• Read notes out loud as you go through them – rehearse delivering your notes as a speech.
• Make mp3 files or cds of the information and play them back to yourself.
• Explain the subject to other people.
• Put the information to a famous tune and sing it back yourself.
Or search for these on youtube!

Kinaesthetic Learners
If you are a kinaesthetic learner, try these techniques:
• Move around as you learn. This could be something simple like pacing up and down in your
room.
• Retype the information on a computer into a colour, font and print size that you like.
• Write down the facts on to key facts cards. You can shuffle them like a pack of cards and
keep reading them, lay them down in order etc.
• When you are working at home give yourself ‘kinaesthetic breaks’,
e.g. jogging, cooking.
• Create big bold mind maps that allow you to express the information freely.

Learning How to Revise
The Rounded Learner
It may help to choose techniques for revision according to
your learning style.
