Gregorc's Learning Styles
Anthony Gregorc's "Style Delineator Approach" is based on studies into the functions of the left and right brain hemispheres. His system of learning takes into account the different ways of perceiving and ordering information. We either perceive things in methods that are concrete-oriented (from our physical senses) or abstract-oriented (from logical, deductive reasoning). Ordering is making sense out of what we perceive. Ordering can either be sequential (organized, systematic) or random (unorganized).
These different means of perceiving and ordering information form Gregorc's four categories of learning styles:
|Gregorc's Learning Styles
||How We Learn
||Learning is linear and sequential.
||Learning is concrete and intuitive, and the person thrives on problem-solving.
||Learning is abstract and analytical, and the person thrives on a mentally challenging but ordered learning environment.
||The person is emotional and imaginative, and prefers an active, interesting, and informal learning environment.
