Online interactive learning style quizzes

Different learning styles can be catered for in many ways and how wonderful would it be to start the new year with new students to get them to do some of these online quizzes.

Rather than only being equipped with previous teachers reports and comments on your new learners you could watch how they interact with others and technology plus you could both find out more about them and their learning style.

Of course they would have to have basic reading skills to complete the task so not sure if I would implement such a strategy in Prep or grade 1 but what a way to find out whom your students are.

I also enjoyed revisiting the Multiple Intelligences sites which I know more as the Smart Pizza theory. I was introduced to it during my early childhood years of study at TAFE and in the day care environment to boost self-esteem and confidence because we are all smart in at least one way or another!


P.S. The Thinkers Keys website is great for encouraging out of the box thinking. I use it when I am working at Vacation Care.
