TIPS FOR STUDYING FOR VISUAL LEARNERS
Organize work and living space to avoid distractions.
Sit in the front of the room to avoid distraction and away from doors or windows where action takes place. Sit away from wall maps or bulletin boards.
Use neatly organized or typed material.
Use visual association, visual imagery, written repetition, flash cards, and clustering strategies for improved memory.
Reconstruct images in different ways - try different spatial arrangements and take advantage of blank spaces on the page.
Use note pads, Post-Its, to-do lists, and other forms of reminders.
Use organizational format outlining for recording notes. Use underlining, highlighting in different colors, symbols, flow charts, graphs or pictures in your notes.
Practice turning visual cues back into words as you prepare for exams.
Allow sufficient time for planning and recording thoughts when doing problem-solving tasks.
Use test preparation strategies that emphasize organization of information and visual encoding and recall.
