I would see if there are any jingles that I can use for students to remember searching strategies, or I might write my own. I might also create a treasure hunt for the online library for learners who are more naturalist. This helps create a sense of exploration towards the library homepage. Then I might have people discuss their thoughts on the treasure hunt for those who enjoy interpersonal learning. 

I like the idea of the chant or cheer to memorize procedure protocol. It can also help energize a class that has become distracted.

I always use the chant and cheer with my students it is extremely helpful. Its amazing when I do this how effective it is.


Creating cheers or raps are lots of fun, the students actually love making thing rhyme and it makes sense to them, helps when reviewing notes for test

i'm a student as well as an instructor and I agree with the benefits of mnd mapping


I think creating raps and cheers would be of great help for many of the students.  I also think that the visual learner must be better engaged in my teaching. Drawings I think wouuld be helpful.  I like the "mind map" idea as well I plan to incorporate this into class.

I feel as though I am a combination of all eight and as an instructor I like to add different learning modules because it also keeps me motivated. Looking for new ways to present content will also keep the instructor up to date on new teaching material. 


Very useful that I can understand the various types of learners including the musical one....


I can relate to mind mapping and teaching care maps in relation of nursing care plans.


Chant/cheer would be great to focus energy and I agree with Sarah with mind mapping and careplans

Relating what is taught with rhyming or some type of real connection aids in the learning process.

We have been exposed to four other kinds of learners: Friendzy twins, Nattie, Rainbow and Rapper. Catering to their characteristic learning styles would make us extremely effective teachers.


Again, as we meet our prospective future health care professionals it's going be important to observe their differences and adjust appropriately.
