Veronica Yamileth Bonilla English Bachelorette degree Educational Teaching for Teaching English VARK Project 2014

Vark is a questionnaire that shows how my learning style is and helps me to know the best ways to get the information that I need to know. This is really helpful to know and identify the ways I am learning to determine the way I will teach my students and from that I can take methods and techniques that can help me in my lessons My scores were:

Visual: 4 Aural: 9 Read/Write: 5 Kinesthetic: 9

According to the results I got the highest level in Aural and Kinesthetic, Aural means that I prefer things to be explained rather than read them, because is more valuable for me to hear them.

The VARK Questionnaire Results : Visual: 4; Aural: 9; Read/Write: 5; Kinaesthetic: 9 INTAKE SWOT - Study without OUTPUT tears Visual= 4 attend classes Imagine talking describe the with the overheads, pictures Use pictures and examiner. and other visuals to photographs that Spend time in somebody who was quiet places illustrate an idea. not there recalling the Go back to the ideas. laboratory or your Practice writing laboratory manual. answers to old exam questions.

use a tape recorder attend discussions and tutorials discuss topics with others discuss topics with your teachers remember the interesting examples, stories, jokes... Your notes may be poor because you prefer to listen. You will need to expand your notes by talking with others and collecting notes from the textbook. Put your summarised notes onto tapes and listen to them. Ask others to 'hear' your understanding of a topic.

Put plenty of examples into your summary. Use case studies and applications to help with principles and abstract concepts

Listen to your voices and write them down

Read/ Write=5

leave spaces in your notes for later recall and 'filling' Read your summarised notes aloud. Explain your notes to another 'aural' person

You will remember the "real" things that happened. Your notes to help your learning may be poor because the topics were not 'concrete' or 'relevant'

trial and error collections of things - rock types, plants, shells, grasses, case studies... exhibits, samples, photographs... recipes solutions to problems, previous exam or test papers.

all your senses - sight, touch, taste, smell, hearing ... teachers, coaches and trainers who give real-life examples

Conclusion

With this questionnaire I can conclude that prefer things explained, written words are not as valuable as those I hear. I style of learning is basically hearing and visualizing things rather than read and analyze them, I will have to work in developing those areas where I have problems.
