My Preference for the Visual Learning Style, and Its Strengths for Growth in My Study Program.

Hi, need to submit a 1250 words paper on the topic My Preference for the Visual Learning Style, and Its Strengths for Growth in My Study Program. I am good at writing and enjoy conducting preliminary research. Visual learning is one of four learning styles is Fleming’s VARK model, which in turn is based on a Neuro-linguistic programming VAK model. The letters VARK stand for the four learning styles viz. visual, auditory, reading/writing and kinesthetic. My preference for the visual learning style means that I prefer seeing things for myself whether they are in the form of pictures, diagrams, charts, graphs, visual illustrations, photographs, slides, handouts, maps, etc. Furthermore, that I prefer this way of learning (that uses these means of teaching) over the other auditory means that focus on listening, reading/writing intensive means, and kinesthetic means that utilize physical experience.

For me, the visual representation of information is a great aid to assimilating information. As the ancient Chinese proverb says, “A picture is worth a thousand words”. When I researched this saying for this paper, I came to know that the original Chinese words meant something a bit different. The literal translation is “A picture’s meaning can express ten thousand words” (Lester). I cannot agree more. Visual representations are so extremely useful if not essential as an aid to learning that they can appropriately render the same ‘meaning’ that could take a lot of words to describe accurately. In practice, no doubt words are necessary, especially in a high-level academic course as Masters in Education, but pictures somehow have the ability to encapsulate those words in a way that can become fixated in the mind easily and visualized such that the information it contains can be recollected.&nbsp.The Chinese origin of the proverb also brought to mind how the Chinese writing system itself is based on pictograms thereby exhibiting a strong connection between writing and picturing.&nbsp.
