Most Common Ways of Learning for Students

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review

Abstract

Objectives
The aim of the study was to identify the dominant ways of sensory perception in the acquisition of knowledge of students, future physiotherapists, and nutritionists.
Methods
242 students were participated in the research. The study was conducted in five study years from 2013/2014. to 2017/2018. Scientific research method – Survey with Testological Knowledge. The survey was conducted within the framework of a pedagogical course with two practical objectives: to identify the most characteristic and appropriate way for students to learn more easily; and help lecturers to include the content of knowledge: didactic principles, methods, tools. Today’s students are learning different. New technologies have a very strong impact on student education.
Results
The results show that the dominant form of perception is visual (78% confirmed it with the testological findings in the survey).
This means that most of the students in the survey understand the content of their knowledge better by looking at what they are learning, trying to visualize ideas and not expressing them in words.
The best way to learn is through imaginative scenes: using charts and images, observing subjects, preparations, people, viewing handouts, watching videos. The results strongly confirms the necessity of using the didactic principle of visibility and the related didactic means in the study process by
studying independently and in cooperation with the lecturer.
Conclusions
The most characteristic way of perception of knowledge for students is visual, followed by tactical, audible and last imaginary. The results of the research show tandems of dominant knowledge acquisition: visual + tactical, visual + auditory, visual + imaginary.
Comparing the data obtained with previous studies, we can assure that among the young people visuals are growing rapidly.
