For the visual learner

Visual learners thrive when they have images and colour cues they can remember.

Visual learners learn best when they have images to refer to while studying. We’re talking graphs, drawings, videos, presentations and charts! 

If you’re a visual learner, you can benefit from investing in a powerful laptop that you can use to create study guides, watch tutorial videos, and make PowerPoint presentations for class.

For the auditory learner

Let your ears do most of the heavy lifting.

If you tend to remember comments that your professors share during lectures, chances are you’re an auditory learner. Active listening is one of your biggest strengths as a student, so listening in class is a must for you. However, auditory learning can also extend to podcasts, audiobooks, or even having a group study session where you have a peer explain a concept to you. Listening to background music while you study can also help you!

If you want something more discreet, especially if you commute to school, the Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro is a pair of in-ear headphones with Personalized HearID Sound that creates the ideal sound profile for your ears and environment; it has active noise cancellation too.

For the kinesthetic learner

Rewriting notes can help kinesthetic learners retain more information.

Can’t sit still while studying and need to act things out to make them stick to your memory? Then you may be a kinesthetic learner. Kinesthetic learners remember information better by physically doing something — with their hands or body — while they’re studying. It can manifest in habits like walking around your room while reading your class notes out loud or rewriting your notes from paper to a digital notebook to better commit them to memory.

It has the features of a laptop condensed into a neat, travel-friendly package. It makes reading and annotating your notes easier, wherever you are.
