Throughout my first semester of college,I have learned much more than I anticipated.I gained a lot of knowledge about software development life cycles which will surely come in handy in developing my future career.

Leaning is a life long never ending process. Human being learns new things throughout its lifetime. There is no best way to learn. Everyone has a unique approach in learning, and because of this, the best way to deal with learn is the way you learn. A learning style is a certain way that the mind receives and sets new information. There are different approaches to manage adjusting, anyway the three essential styles are visual, auditory, and tactile. It is significant for the general progression of person. Simply the person who is sharp understudy can suffer and create in the present concentrated environment.We always continue to learn from the day we born till the day we die. A presence without learning looks like stagnating water. Human being learn everything that comes to him i.e. learn from its actions, its experience etc.
From a test I took it seems like I am well fitted to be called as an auditory and visual learner. I generally learn by hearing ,tuning in, examining or seeing pictures. I understand and review things I have heard. I try to store data by the means it sounds and that I have a neater time understanding spoken directions than written ones. I often learn by reading out loud because you have to hear it or speak it in order to know it.As an auditory visual learner, I in all likelihood mumble or banter with myself or others in case I become depleted. People may think I am not centering, regardless of the way that I may be hearing and understanding everything being said.
The Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory (ELLI) has demonstrated to be an integral asset for producing mindfulness, reflection and self-improvement arranging about learning throughout my first semester of college. It has been utilized viably over a scope of establishments, branches of knowledge and levels of concentrate to raise student mindfulness and to advance student improvement. Most as of late ELLI has given both helpful quantitative information and been an impetus for much important subjective information in the Dispositions to Stay and Succeed venture.A brief of the seven dimensions of learning power is discussed below.
- Changing and Learning: a feeling of yourself as somebody who learns and changes after some time; the inverse is being 'stuck and static'

- Resilience: the direction to continue on in the improvement of your own learning force and relish challenge; the inverse is being ‘fragile and dependent’
I see myself as a critically curious and creative learner.When I find something really interesting to I try to get beneath the surface and find things out.I can’t agree what I am told without a proper reason behind it.So, I always have a desire to find things out on my own.I always enjoy a challenge and trying to solve a problem on my own.Trying to take risks and being creative has always been my speciality.i see things differently on most of my projects and try to take a different approach to it than the other members.

5. HONEY AND MUMFORD:
Honey and Mumford learning styles were created by Peter Honey and Alan Mumford in 1986. Their work is motivated from and based upon Kolb’s learning styles model. In any case they delivered their very own Learning Styles Questionnaire (LSQ) in light of the fact that it was discovered that Kolb's LSI had low legitimacy with managers.Therefore as opposed to asking individuals straightforwardly how they learn, as Kolb's LSI does, Honey and Mumford gave a survey that tests general social propensities. The basis behind this is a great many people have never intentionally thought about how they truly learn. Also, to be a compelling student, people must think about their learning styles or inclinations and discover approaches to get the hang of utilizing those methods.To help with finding the right learning style or inclination, Honey and Mumford have built up a survey based on a continuum as the figure appears underneath. Realizing your learning style encourages people to settle on more intelligent choices in modifying the learning openings and your inclination of best learning, builds the range and assortment of encounters which are potential learning openings, improves learning abilities and mindfulness.
Since I learn by watching and thinking and lean toward tuning in to addresses ,watching exhibits, examining and bunch exchanges. So out all the four, Reflector suits me as my principle learning style.I like to consider my encounters and see from alternate points of view. I like to gather information legitimately and from others and investigate it completely before settling on a choice. This may lead me to defer arriving at a choice rapidly. I am mindful and like to be inactive in talks and watch others in real life. I am a decent audience and contemplate all focuses before offering my own perspectives.
Reflectors are the individuals that learn by watching and pondering what occurred. They may abstain from jumping in and want to observe as a passive spectator. Want to remain back and see encounters from various alternate points of view, gathering information and setting aside the effort to progress in the direction of a proper end.
