Learning Styles

These are some different types of learners.


Not all students learn in the same way. Visual learners learn best when they can see the content. Auditory learners learn best when they can hear the content. Kinesthetic learners learn best when they can actively do something to help them learn the content. Learners often have a preference for one or more of these types of learning. 

However, when planning lessons the best practice is to think about the content and determine whether a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learning activity would be best. For example, students learning geography will all benefit from looking at a map, even if their overall learning preference tends toward auditory or kinesthetic. Students learning a new language will all benefit from hearing the vocabulary words spoken aloud so they can mimic the pronunciation, even if their learning preference tends toward visual or kinesthetic.
