Revision tips and tricks for visual learners

April 7, 2017 STABILO


So, you’ve established that you are a visual learner. This is all well and good, but the most important part of this is knowing how to fully utilize this knowledge and apply it to your revision.

Here are a few handy tips to help you suit your revision to your learning style, helping you retain more information to make those dreaded exams a bit less daunting.

  • Underline, Highlight, or circle notes
    You sit looking blankly at a whole page of notes you’ve taken… what do you do? Highlighting key parts of text in your own notes will subconsciously gain attention from your brain and allow you to focus more on the key information. Our range of STABILO highlighters will do just the job!
  • Convert your notes into pictures, maps, diagrams, sketches
    Being a visual learner, converting your notes into visual cues is the easiest way of bringing your theories or facts to life! Consider creating your very own mind map. This will help you to connect all your notes together and see the relationship between all your information. Try using our STABILO pointMax to design your very own educational creations!
  • Study in a controlled environment
    Studies show that if you revise close to visual distractions such as paintings, windows, doors or posters, you’ll get distracted much easier and will not concentrate on visual aids that help with your revision. Make sure to still take a break every hour for five or ten minutes to recharge your mind!
  • Make your study area visually appealing
    Get your stationery station looking good! Little things like making sure your desk is tidy and organised can do wonders for your attitude to revision. You’ll be spending a lot of time there so you may as well spend a bit of time making it a nice place to be!

These are just a few tips and tricks to help all you visual learners have the best revision session you can. Best of luck with exam season, we’re sure you’ll BOSS it!
