how might knowing that i am a visual learner help me be a more effective college student?
Being a visual learner has its benefits. You learn best by seeing things, using pictures, images, or even graphs to fully understand what you are learning. You learn by seeing. [ Diagrams on overheads and on the board can really help you out when you are trying to learn visually. And 70% of what we learn is thru visuals! So you can take advantage of this ability of yours. Because pictures are
the best ways for visual learners to gain knowledge, you want to take that into consideration when sitting down to study. When you are working with terms that mean something, or words that describe something, take a minute and make up some flash cards that actually have pictures underneath the word on the front. Put the definitions or descriptions on the back, and try to learn them using that as a method. You will freely associate the picture with the word, and by doing so, it will make it easier for your brain to pick out the definition on command. By drawing out charts, and actually making graphs in order to memorize percentages, you can also help yourself to visually stimulate your brain. Color code your notes and you will better associate topics, and if you can print out diagrams of what you are studying, you will have an easier time remembering exactly what does what when learning something like human anatomy, geography, or even Chemistry Equations. ]
