Free Guide: Use Brain Friendly Learning: Learning Pyramid

Use Brain Friendly Learning – comes from the Free Guide – ‘Are you frustrated by training that creates short term interest but not long term change?

One of the most commonly cited models when discussing Learner engagement (or using brain-friendly leaning) is the ‘Learning Pyramid’. Unfortunately, the origins of the research are unknown; however, instinctively, we all know that we learn very little from being lectured at, and much more from being involved. The challenge is to engage the Learner in a variety of ways. Appeal to all learning styles, and decide whether to adopt the ‘PART’ learning style model or the ‘VKA’ model. PART stands for Pragmatist, Activist, Reflector, and Theorist. And VKA stands for Visual, Kinaesthetic, and Auditory. Alternatively, you can appeal to the 5 senses of the brain (Sight, Hearing, Taste, Smell and Touch).

Action

Keep in mind that using brain-friendly learning is all about ‘mixing it up’ and going way beyond a simple PowerPoint presentation. By adding texture, variety, and interest, you will engage the Learner much more. A simple technique is to add a column next to your training plan. Also write one, or all of the models above. Then, using a checklist, see how many styles and senses engage during each session.
