Learning Styles

Everyone has a style of learning that best suits them. Our Gooroos get to know you or your child’s styles in order to create tailored learning experiences. Learn more about each style below.

    Instruction

    The student learns the best when the teacher provides step-by-step instructions.

    Learning step-by-step means that the Gooroo will demonstrate each step of the problem-solving technique while the learner observes. Step-by-step learners process and assimilate information simultaneously.

    Discovery

    The student prefers to learn a concept by experimenting and doing hands-on work.

    Discoverers like to learn by doing things. They prefer to use all their sensory channels - sight, sound, smell, and touch. They learn well with augmented reality and virtual reality. They are active learners who reflect on the tasks presented to them through exploration.

    Storytelling

    The student learns best when a concept is explained through stories.

    These learners love absorbing concepts interwoven in a story or case study. They are people who assimilate information by attaching the information with a certain set of events.

    Analogy

    The student learns best when a concept is explained through examples and real-life analogies.

    These learners do well by recalling a base knowledge of theoretical information previously provided to them and processing through concepts by comparing different examples to each other. They prefer to digest all of the information at once.

    Theory

    The student learns best when the teacher explains the theory first, followed by examples to enhance understanding.

    These learners prefer to add new information onto the foundation of existing information, before fully assimilating it into their long term memory. They tend to learn well by observing worked out examples in areas like computation and physics. During observation, they tend to observe the general theory, the similarities between the examples, and how concepts are applied.
