If your child is a strategic learner, you will see it,
and you will hear it!
Strategic learners are visible learners. They are loud learners, and they are collaborative learners. They are mobile and often play music. Strategic learners strive to experience new material through as many senses as possible while learning. A child that consistently practices the methods of strategic learning has as her primary goals, the activation, the achievement and the refinement of personal understanding. She actively engages in learning, striving to merge her thinking with sources of information to gain new insight and comprehension. Strategic learners are master learners because they know and activate strategies on demand, no matter the learning environment.
Strategic learners are in-tune with the ways their
minds work best.
A strategic learner is aware of her unique learning style, the way her brain was created to best receive, process, and remember new information. She is aware of the types of information with which she most easily connects and filters her learning through those connections.
Strategic learners do not rely on pre-packaged learning.
A strategic learner captures her thinking and transforms it into readily absorbed and processed memory packets, ones she can recall on-demand. She checks for personal understanding, repairs faulty comprehension, and reflects back to find gaps in her process.
