- Sequential learners gain an understanding in linear steps whereas global learners tend to learn in large jumps and then suddenly “getting it”.
- Sequential learners tend to follow logical stepwise paths in finding solutions whereas global learners may be able to solve complex problems quickly but may not be able to explain how they did it.
How sequential learners can help themselves
- Most school/college courses are taught sequentially, however if your teacher often jumps around from topic to topic then you should ask your teacher to fill in the gaps so that you gain a better understanding of the subject.
- When you are revising, do so in a logical, structured manner so that you will find it easier to understand and remember the information.
