Visual Learners

Visual learners:

  • Learn best by looking at images, graphics, mind maps, or watching demonstrations.
  • May find it easier to look at colors, layouts, and maps rather than to listen to explanations.

Tips for Visual Learners

• Turn notes into pictures, charts, or maps
• Avoid distractions (windows, doorways, etc.)
• Learn the big picture first and then focus on the details
• Make mind and concept maps instead of outlines
• Color code parts of new concepts in your notes
• Use flash cards when trying to study vocabulary
