NLP - Neuro Linguistic Programming
And how it can improve learning

It's now fairly common knowledge that each one of us learns in a different way. Some of us are strongly visual: we learn best by "seeing" color pictures, videotapes or graphics. Others of us like to hear information and we might be able to learn best while listening to music. And a large percentage of the population is kinesthetic. They learn best through physical movement
Some researchers write this in shorthand VAK for visual, auditory, kinesthetic and say that good teachers will incorporate all those "modalities" in all classroom activities. Those researchers include Richard Bandler and John Grindler, who have led the research into Neuro Linguistic Programming, or NLP.

NLP practitioners also say most learning is subconscious; and it is therefore vital for teachers to consciously orchestrate subconscious learning in their classrooms.

At its simplest this could mean placing "peripherals", such as posters, paintings and graphics, around a classroom to emphasize main points on any subject; and then to organize games so that students will sit in different positions during the day. In this way they will absorb key information subconsciously from the "peripherals".

In the latest edition of the world's best-selling book, The Learning Revolution, co-authors Gordon Dryden and Dr. Jeannette Vos include a summary of the main principles of NLP in their chapter on learning styles and multiple intelligences. Their entire book is also designed with a unique format to enable teachers to create their own posters. Each left-hand page of the book is a "poster page". Teachers, and students, can reprint any page on a color printer reversing the type for printing on colored backgrounds.

But the authors have gone even further. They have summarized the entire book in a series of Powerpoint color-slide presentations, and produced these on a full CD-ROM, for both Windows and Apple Mac computer systems. And teachers can also reprint these full-color slides on any inkjet or laser color printer and use them for NLP classroom posters.
