What is a visual-spatial learner? Well...

Step by step learner vs whole to part learner

Auditory-Sequential vs. Visual-Spatial


Just in case you think and learn in words, though:

Visual-spatial learners remember what they see, but forget what they hear.

Visual-spatial learners are attracted to puzzles, mazes and building with blocks, LEGO, K'Nex, and even just a roll of tape!

Visual-spatial learners have a wonderful sense of space, but not necessarily a very good sense of time.

Visual-spatial learners have a wild imagination, are "outside-the-box thinkers" and can think of numerous solutions to a single problem.

Visual-spatial learners excel in spatial tasks but may have difficulty with spelling, math facts and organizational skills.

Still curious? Take a look at these quizes - for parents, teachers and kids, too!

I've met and worked with visual-spatial learners all over the world. So plan to stay awhile and browse through the articles and resources you'll find here. I hope you'll find the answers you're seeking.

  Illustration of left and right hemispheric abilities      

From L.V. Williams, (1983). Teaching for the Two-Sided Mind.

Where our left hemisphere sees the parts to the whole,our right hemisphere understands the whole, big picture. Neither perspective is wrong or of less importance but only the left has been rewarded in classrooms and on standardized tests.
