Visual Learners

People who are primarily visual (sight-based) learners process the world best through their eyes. They notice how things look, they remember how a word is spelled by “seeing it” in their mind’s eye. Visual learners love maps, charts, and diagrams, and they like to learn from reading books. They understand physical tasks better if someone shows them what to do. They like learning situations that include abundant visual aids.

Visual learners sometimes find lectures and discussions boring. Verbal directions often seem to “go in one ear and out the other.” They can find it frustrating to be asked to do a task without a demonstration first. Since not all learning situations are designed specifically for visual learning, there are some adaptive strategies that visual learners can use.
