This class introduced me to the concept of the four learning patterns and how we use them. The Learning Connection Inventory Survey assessed our leaning tendencies how we use each pattern.

We use these patterns to different degrees and or combinations. Each pattern is give a value three ranges of use; use first (25-35) as needed (18-24) an avoid (7-17). With purposeful effort we can tailor the way we use a particular pattern. In week one I defined learning as “when information is stored in your brain as fact vice suggestion.” I believe now that the brain storing information is just the inevitable end to the learning process. My LCI sores, S23 P31 TR22 C25, reveal that I am classified as a dynamic learner. Dynamic learners are at least one use first with the others various combo of as needed and avoid. As a dynamic learner I purposely switch between patterns to so suite learning situations. I use sequence to keep order in
