As part of his senior project Park Changhwi is holding a Korean College meeting to help students get a chance to hear from the college students who are actually from the schools you dream of. It will be held on Monday, the 15th during c.c. in the New Cafeteria. There will be three college students each from Yonsei University, KAIST, and lastly Seoul National University. Hope you can come and build up your dream.
*Please look at the poster for further information.
On Thursday this week Musselquire introduced a little background to the Dalton in CDS. I'm not sure who enjoys these videos more. Them making them or us watching them! Whatever, we are lucky to have so many dedicated teachers who go above and beyond the call of duty. Enjoy the video
It is widely agreed that there are three general types of learning styles that we utilize to acquire new information. Visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning styles (sometimes referred to as VAK) is nothing new and has been around for many decades. Although we use all three styles in some way when we consume knowledge, we rely on one style more than the other. By understanding which way a student learns best, parents and teachers can adapt and differentiate instruction to help children learn and absorb new material at a higher and more comprehensible rate. The following is a brief description of each style. If you are interested in learning more about VAK or would like your child to take a quiz to see which way they learn the best please follow one of the links that I have added. You may even want to take the quiz yourself!
Visual Learner- This type of learner will best learn new material by seeing pictures, exploring graphs, and utilizing any type of visual representation of the content being proposed. This type of learner may best express themselves by giving presentations and showing rather than telling,
Auditory learner- This type of learner will best learn new material by listening to lectures and verbal repetition of new material. They will thrive in setting that are heavy with discussion and will prefer to express themselves by telling and not showing.
Kinesthetic learner - This type of learner will best learn when they are able to do and experience new information through hands on activities. These students will typically prefer to express what they have learned by having a tangible finished product.
