Learning happens in different ways and at different times for everyone. Think of a time when you were at school. A time when you enjoyed immensely learning something and a time when it was a struggle. Try to remember for both situations as many facts as possible. For example:
What was that that you were learning? Was it Math, English, cooking, music, etc.
What was the learning setting? Were you in a classroom with a teacher providing lectures, were you in a laboratory following the steps written in the blackboard? Did you learn on your own by reading a book to then present to the class?
What did you do during class? Did you take notes, use a voice recorder, just listen, or had to do what you were told? Did your teacher tell what activities to complete, when assignments were due, what questions could be included in the test?
What materials did you have available? Textbooks, computers, pen and paper, videos, etc.?
Finally, how did you feel in each situation? Empowered, confident, curious, involved, calm when you enjoyed learning? Frustrated, confused, less involved when you struggled to learn something?
