This preference uses the printed word as the most important way to convey and receive information. I agree with this because I learn easier when I am taking notes and writing descriptively about what I have learnt. If I am learning in college I would prefer to read books/hand-outs and take my own notes. I learn more from writing my own notes as I'm taking in any information and rewriting them so I understand them in my own way. I learn more from taking my own notes as I can keep going over my notes taking in any information which I've wrote about. when you take your own notes your picking out which you think is the most important information, which will help you to study or progress in the course which you're doing.

Here is a list of ways I intake information;
  • lists
  • headings
  • dictionaries
  • glossaries
  • definitions
  • handouts
  • textbooks
  • readings – library
  • notes (often verbatim)
  • teachers who use words well and have lots of information in sentences and notes
  • essays
  • manuals (computing and laboratory)

    1. Congratulations on creating your blog and writing your first post, Georgia!

      I enjoyed reading what you have written, although it would have been easier to read if you had broken the text up into paragraphs. Try to keep the reader in mind when you publish any posts.

      I can only spot one grammatical error - at the start of the last sentence. Can you see what this is?

      As one of your preferred methods of learning is read/write, you will find it useful to read through the text books. There are text books for every unit in the library, including the books for this unit. They are: Developing Study Skills, Business and personal communication skills and Working Effectively in Finance.

      It might help your learning if you borrowed these books from the library. What do you think?
