Hi, guys. Welcome back. I'm Katherine McKeever, and this is your Cyberia creator on boarding. In this lesson, we're actually going to carry forward the idea of how to create a good online learning experience and pick up where we left off on learning style,
talking about learning modalities.
So in this lesson, specifically, we're gonna go over some effective learning modalities for each learning type. So what we know works based off of their learning style. And then I'm going to throw around some ideas as's faras recommendations for a variety of modalities you can have in each lesson. Certainly, please. By all means, be creative, engages students and as many different ways as you can, and certainly ways that are fun and novel. But I just wanted to get kind of your juices going as faras ways that you can present your information
so to set the basis a learning modality is simply a different way of presenting information. So if you think about whatever concept is you want to teach,
being able to teach it for a visual audience or his auditory audience will make you a more robust instructor and really deep in the experience that your students have within your course. So simply put, it's just how we per information out there for our students to consuming process. So we want to make sure that we touch on each of the different learning styles and think about the fact that they are adult learners.
So our first learning modality is are visual learners so quick? Reminder. These are people who learned by seed. When we think about visual learners, we and I instantly think of images thes. They're going to be people who respond to pictures and memes and jokes. Um,
comics also demonstrations, So if you can record your screen as you're doing something to show, this is how you do it. They're very responsive to videos. So any time that you can integrate animations of possible they this will really resonate for these students. They're also good at written instructions.
It's because their visual So these are going to be people who take in information through their eyes. Written instructions, works for them.
We talk about our auditory learners. We're gonna talk about people who take in their information through their ears thes they're going to be our hearers. They are people who respond really well to lectures discussion. So if you can start engaging them and having a back and forth, so maybe not necessarily as much in this course.
But we'll think about how you can use that. I know that one of our other courses, they actually had a debate between two instructors
to discuss some concepts around ethics. They respond. Really. Auditory learners respond really well to stories. So that that Orel tradition of where I can tell you about my experience and you can take it in and then you're going to synthesize it because you have some experiences of your own because you're an adult learner. They're also really good at verbal instructions. So this is kind of interesting because these were going to be the people that I can tell you. Go down to the street, take a left and then take a right. But conversely, if I'm talking about my visual learners, I need to draw on the map, go down, take a left, take a right. So think about that as you're going through how you can convey that information specifically,
if you're looking at very detailed instructions,
tactile learners, thes, they're gonna be our fine motor skills. So these were going to be our writers. These learners tend to respond best to taking notes. So anything that engages
their fingers typing, writing those two things also doodling and diagrams. So if you can have them draw a concept out for you. So say you're working on networking a network diagram. If one of your exercises for them is have them draw their own
Now you're engaging that fine motor skill. They're also very good at hands on activities. So labs exercises those sorts of things because they do have the do element in their learning style
anaesthetic learners. These were going to be the people who learn by doing so, these ones you're gonna lead with hands on activities. This is these will be labs. They're gonna be exercises on. This is having your students
actually engaging in the activity themselves. This is gonna be what's best for your kinesthetic learners as I can. Ischemic learner, I can tell you that it's something that's really rare for you to see and is really delightful when you get it. Like if you can tell me like how I can go off and learn this on my own
than the happiest student out there. The We also respond really well to follow along examples. So if you do a demonstration, having your students following along with their own tools will be really helpful for them. Role playing eso. Now we're engaging in the activity, even if we're not doing it really time. But we're still practicing also really good at experimenting. So these were going to be your trial and error students. They respond really well to that
now, as we're thinking about. So you have an idea of the different modalities, the different ways that you can display information. You will be doing a consul with creative services with the Cyberia Creative Services, where we have this vast group of people who are really good
at these different ways of thinking about information. So that's also exciting, something that's going to happen before you get too far into your content.
But when you're pulling together your different modalities, remember, you're working with Lerner adult learners, so you want to be able to answer the what's in it for me? Question, or why do I care? So when you think about ways to resonate or ways toe. Have your students really engaged with your information? You want to be them to be able to answer some of these questions. The what's in it for me. So why do I care? Why do I need this information? So, for example, in this learning modalities lecture,
you're going to need it because it's going to make your courses more robust. How will I benefit from this information? So what? What are the gains for me once I have it? How can I use this in a practical real or on the job way?
So I wanted to expand out from just on the job to thinking about practical Andrea La's well. So these are things that happen where I take your information and apply it somewhere. So thinking about Bloom's taxonomy, we're applying the information, Or how will this make me a better professional? So remember very self motivated students,
so they're really interested in How can they grow eso as you are developing your content and you are thinking about ways to display your information? Ask yourself. Will your students be able to answer some of these questions at the end of the lesson and
being able to answer that will help the contents of your lesson really stick
with your students.
So today we went over some learning modalities for your course on these air, effective as fit in there. Tried intrude, but they're by no means the only list that you can work from. So please be creative being novel. Push the envelope a little bit. We did talk about ways to incorporate those modalities. So how we can get some resonance where are in your students walk away saying this is the best class I've ever taken.
And then we also talked a little bit about adult learner motivation. So you know that
as an instructor, if your student can answer some of these questions at the end of the lesson, it's going to be more likely to stick with them. So from that we're actually gonna wrap up on our learning styles are learning lessons, and our next module is going to be about the cyber slide template. So moving into the documents that are available and how you can display that information,
so I will see you guys there
