Learning Styles

Sharing
I recently shared an article about The Learning Pyramid through Google Buzz.  Based on the interest in the article, I thought some people might be interested in filling out a questionnaire to figure out how they learn best.  My results showed I was VARK multimodal, which pretty much means I have no specific learning input preference.  From my point of view, I learn best by doing, so I’m a kinesthetic learner.

Tim got the Kindle cover I made him in the mail today.  Here’s how it looks on his Kindle:

Edit (forgot to mention):
I’m going to the Steve Martin concert (Performing with The Steep Canyon Rangers – An Evening of Bluegrass & Banjo) on April 24 with Kes and Jason!  We have 3 balcony seats together, and I’m pretty excited.  I can’t believe tickets sold out so fast.  I think we got the last 3 together in the balcony when we purchased ours.

Sewing

Much of my day has been occupied wrestling with a sewing project.  I had been working on it by hand, but the frustration led me to try to figure out how to work the sewing machine my mom is letting me use.

Singer Sewing Machine

It introduced some different difficulties such as refilling the bobbin, but with Kes’ help, I was able to figure out the sewing machine, and finish my project:  a Kindle cover for my friend Tim based off a tutorial from One Pearl Button.

Here’s what it ended up looking like:

Honestly, it’s a bit rough, but I definitely enjoyed making something myself, and hopefully Tim enjoys the gift 🙂
