The link to the video worked and took other students straight to the source. I asked three short questions; prompting readers to share experiences and ideas in their responses. I had three responses from fellow students that indicate my post was engaging: Fellow student response 1: “l think we all suffer with Procrastination. I recall when I gave up working full- time, that it was going to be a time of being able to do everything that I didn’t have time to do… Well Result… I don’t think I have done one thing I intended to do… N fact when was working full-time I seemed to achieve more because I ad deadlines to meet and a limited time to do things.

Task 2 (Section 3): Learning styles – Study plan covering three weeks including eateries. I have always been the girl in class who was told off for drawing in her books and not listening properly. Having now completed the VS. Learning Style quiz, I know I am a visual learner and my drawing in class was quite possibly my way of taking in what the teacher was saying. Visual learners will gain a stronger understanding of information they have seen rather than information they have heard.
They will need a clear overview of a task before being able to focus their attention on completing it. A visual learner may tune out when their teacher is speaking for a long period of time and may quickly forget verbal instructions.
