Learning to learn

In our inquiry this term we are learning about what it means to learn and how we can be great learners. We have found out about SWITCH ONs and SWITCH OFFs.  We used a survey to get some advice some expert learners (our parents):

Over the last two weeks have been exploring different styles of learning – VISUAL (words & pictures), AUDITORY (listening) & KINESTHETIC (moving & doing). When we want to learn something new we can use these styles to help us.

Today we focussed on learning how to tie shoelaces. We had some written instructions that had illustrations, we had some experts (people who already knew how to) and we watched some YouTube clips where we could watch someone doing it.

We discovered that there are lots of different ways to tie shoelaces.

Who taught you?

If you still can’t do it by yourself – what will you do to try and learn?
