Visual-Spatial Intelligence

Learning Strategies

How to Study:
” I can use my Spatial, imagination and artistic abilities to learn anything! I can organize my notes on the page in a clear design. I can use “mapping” to visually arrange new information. I can use different colored pens, markers, paper or notebooks. I will visualize real life” situations involving the information. I can do some drawing or building before reading to warm-up my brain. I can picture myself knowing how to use the new information very well on a test or project. I will look to see how the whole problem works from beginning to end and then break it down into chunks and pieces. I can use doodles, drawings or other symbols to help me to memorize things. I can make cartoons or a video tape to explain complicated stuff and practice skills. I can ask someone to show me how it works while I watch carefully.”
