Great Memory Technique for Kinesthetic Learners

I found a great memory technique for kinesthetic learners.  Are you a kinesthetic learner?  If you are, it means that you learn best when you are doing or moving — actually carrying out a physical activity, rather than listening to a lecture or simply watching a demonstration. You like to act, participate in a sport, play an instrument — use your hands or your entire body in some way.

In order to use this system, you must learn the 20 “body-pegs” shown on the diagram. [see article reference below]

This may take about 10 minutes but will prove to be really useful.

You will notice that points numbered 1 to 9 start at the fingers of one hand, go up the arm, over the head and down to the fingers of the other hand. Points 10 to 20 start at the eyes and move down the body to the feet. You should practice until you are able to point to all 20 “body-pegs” without hesitation.

The principle of the system is that you “attach” one key-word to each body-peg in turn (preferably with a memorable action). When you need to recall your list of key-words, your body (and the actions you have associated with each key-word) acts as a memory-aid.

Here are the detailed instructions on how to use this technique.

Moving the body is a big part of this learning style. A great memory technique for kinesthetic learners that uses the body and imaginary actions is a natural and easy way to memorize and recall information. Give it a try and let us know how it works for you. Click share and pass it along too.
