Visual Learning

 

Visual3

Visual Learners absorb information the best through reading or seeing pictures

They tend to recall a picture or like to create a picture in their head when learning a new concept. Visual learners tend to keep their spaces neat and clean, close their eyes to visualize or remember something, and find it difficult to stay focused in a noisy environment. Vibrant colors, image-rich stories, and pictures help visual learners study.
