VAK Questionnaire and Learning Style
There are many different methods and styles of learning that individuals use with varying degrees of preference and efficacy, and many different frameworks for identifying and understanding these different learning styles also exist. The VAK model, which stands for Visual, Aural, ead/Write, and Kinesthetic, describes four basic learning modes that can suggest specific learning strategies that are more effective for learners with different specific preferences in learning styles. The VAK questionnaire was developed specifically to help determine learning preferences; multiple choices (one corresponding to each learning style) are provided for different learning scenarios, and individuals that take the questionnaire choose one or more choice and are given scores based on the number of each they choose. Total scores demonstrate the learning style preference or preferences of the learner.
After taking the VAK questionnaire at the specifically designed website, my results indicate that I am a…

VAK examination shows higher preference to kinesthetic strategies with a score of six while all the others scored the same with a score of five. Kinesthetic approaches include learning with the sense, using examples, use of practical exercises, use of cases, and pure trial and error. From the VAK website, it explains the learning preference describes learning through experiences not just on screens or in pictures. It demands for a more hands-on type of experience. These kinds of learners are also better equipped to study practical application vs. theory. Some people can learn well from theory alone, and although the other strategies derived from the results scored slightly under from kinesthetic, it shows that hands-on experience develops better memory and retention at least for those that score highest on that section.
The preferred learning style for one who scores like this involves actual experience in whatever one learns and supplemental…

VAK Learning Styles and the Multimodal Learner
Students may learn in differing ways; while a class discussion may aid absorption, processing and assimilation of information for one student another may benefit from reading an article and another from watching a video clip. The work of Fleming and Baume (2006) identified four main learning styles; visual, aural or auditory, read/write and kinesthetic. These each refer to the dominant source of learning from which information will be most efficiently absorbed by the student. These four learning styles lead to a fifth style; multimodal, a style which may be observed when a student does not have a single dominant learning input, but two or more dominant input sources. To appreciate the way in which students learn, and to place each of the learning style in context a brief overview of each style will be presented. This can be used to perform a…

Personal Learning Styles
After completing the VAK questionnaire, I have learned that out of the four types of learners, I have strong tendencies for three out of the four types. I am mostly a visual and read/write learner with equal scores in both areas. Furthermore, with a score very close to the first two categories, I am also a kinesthetic learner. Lastly, with the lowest score, I am an aural learner. Compared to how I perceive my own learning styles outside of this questionnaire, I mostly agree. I think I am mostly a visual and kinesthetic learner.
I do learn by reading and writing, as well as aurally, but not as much. They are not so much my preference for learning, but I cannot deny that those aspects assist my understanding. Some people are not the best at public speaking or giving instructions, and that is why I…

3). Review the other learning styles: visual, aural, read/write, kinesthetic, and multimodel (listed on the VARK Questionnaire Result page). 4). Compare your preferred learning strategies to the identified srategies for your learning style. 5). Appraise how this will change your way of stuying, if any.

4. hat was your score from the readiness assessment?
I scored a 77 on the readiness assessment. According to the assessment, those scoring between 100 and 75 such as myself should be well-suited for taking courses online. Particular qualities such as my keen self-awareness should allow me to easily navigate courses taken at a distance.

The Web Accessibility Initiative (W3C) specifically concentrates on defining the intersection between usability for those who are handicapped, the elderly, and those that are faced with limitations in terms of being able to get online. The reliance on ISO Standard 9241-11 (Green, Pearson, 2006) defines the extent to which there are uniformity in the design of graphical interfaces and the use of consistently of navigational aids in the form of buttons, structure of menus, and accessibility of taxonomies including support for multiple entry points and roles-based access and use of the content on the website.

First, he states that teachers can learn, from their students, how to best affect their classes. Through talking with their students, teachers can learn in what those students are interested. Teachers can learn what teaching styles best affect them, what can engage them. This can help them better relate to their students as teachers, portraying their subjects in a way that students can understand. In addition, Corbett argues that teachers can learn from their students by re-learning what it is like to be a beginning learner. They can do this by taking a class themselves or by writing the papers that they assign to their students. Thus, they learn the pain and suffering that many students have to go through in order to learn. Thus, Corbett's major theory is that both students and teachers exist in a symbiotic relationship in which they learn from one another.

The importance of self-development in becoming a manager
Self-development is defined first and foremost as an overall holistic desire to find one's freedom and the desire to connect with one's self and own sense of worth, integrity and happiness so as to enjoy abundant happiness both at home and at work. Self-development in simpler terms is that amazing quest / journey that a person embarks on; a point of realization when all the pieces of a person's life fall together and they finally remove their own self limitations and inhibitions that hinder or stop any person more so a manager from achieving greatness. This definition…

(3) According to the Multiple Intelligences Survey, I have quite a bit of intrapersonal and interpersonal intellegence and a moderate amount of musical and kinesthetic intelligence. This makes sense because I enjoy analyzing people and situations; and, I decided to leave my old job because I was bored sitting still behind a desk and not talking to anyone for most of the day.
As I was enjoying the surveys so much, also I took Kolb's Learning Styles Inventory and discovered that my learning style consists of doing and feeling or what Kolb would abbreviate as "CE/AE." When these findings are placed on the two-by-two grid by Kolb, my learning style is accommodating. An accommodating learning style is often times referred to as a "hands-on" style and one that relies upon intuition over logic. In fact, these findings also did not surprise me because I have to do something at least…
