Excerpt from Document:

. Face to Face Interaction - This implies that the individual must become an integral part of the group by communicating effectively within that environment.

. Social Skill Building - Social skills include sharing, body language, learning to accept differences of opinion and work towards consensus, tact, time management, and empathy.

. Processing - Sometimes called feedback or reflection, processing allows students time to understand what they have learned, how they learned, and what they might do to improve the experience the next time (Gillies, 2007).

Types of Learning - We now know that there is not one mode of learning, nor does a single individual learn all types of material the same way. To be an effective teacher, it is important to try to adapt the lesson so that it reaches the largest amount of learning styles as apporpriate. There are, of course, no hard and fast rules regarding learning, and many of these styles are fluid within individuals. However, in general, there are at least three major types, visual, auditory, and kinesthetic/tactile learners, as well as individuals with multiple intelligences:

. Visual - Visual learning focuses on the way ideas, concepts and data are used by the student who sees the information in order to experience it. Graphs, maps, concepts, and ideas all flow from the eye into the brain, where they are organized. This type of cognition is representative - learners link ideas with symbols and add words or notes to be able to remember concepts (Perini, 2000)[continue]
