A Multi-sensory Approach can lead to ‘Accelerated Learning’

 

Accelerated learning is the most advanced teaching and learning method in use today. It is a 'total system' for speeding up and enhancing the learning process, whereby results improve significantly and the time taken to learn is dramatically reduced. Based on brain research, it has been proven time and again to increase learning effectiveness.

 

As individuals, we receive and process information in different ways, depending on our personality and our cognition. We all have our own preferred style of learning, a way of learning that suits us best and we also prefer using one or more of our senses, requiring different stimuli - be it visual, auditory or tactile. 

For example, some of us will understand concepts simply through listening. Some of us, on the other hand, may prefer tracking or taking in information through our eyes (watching a video or play), whilst some of us may prefer a more ‘hands on’ approach ie. physically acting out the play.

However, although we may respond well when using just a couple of our senses, we may not be processing information as well as we could be. 

A multi-sensory approach, ensures that regardless of our learning preference, we are provided with a means of understanding the information. It allows us to hone in to our preferred learning style and when we do this, learning becomes more natural and because it is natural, it automatically makes learning easier and in turn, speeds up the learning process – Accelerated Learning. 

Multi-sensory teaching techniques stimulate the brain in a variety of ways. Each sensory system is enhanced and therefore higher functioning. Hence, this improves essential functions of the brain such as vision, listening, movement and tactile recognition.

Additionally, when the brain is stimulated in several different ways at the same time ie. Visually, auditory and tactile/physically, as with a multi-sensory approach, we tend to be more attentive, as there is less time for distraction. 

Multi-sensory teaching forces several of our senses to work simultaneously and together, focusing attention, helping understanding and increasing retention of information but in a more relaxed and enjoyable way.

This is why KAZ’s Touch Typing program is so effective. Its proven accelerated learning teaching method integrates music, imagery, spoken and written language, along with interactive instruction. Using a multi-sensory approach throughout, it enables the student to hone in to their preferred way of learning, engaging the major senses of sight, sound and touch simultaneously, radically enhancing memory retention and recall. Followers of Nero Linguistic Programming will recognise this.
