Do you know how you learn best? Knowing your style of learning is important as it relates to study strategies you can use to achieve better learning results.
People all learn in various styles. There are a number of models to understand the different ways that people learn best. The most common model is the VARK model with a sensory approach, identifying four primary types of learners.
V – visual learners: learn better via seeing.
A – auditory/aural learners: learn predominately by listening and talking.
R – read/write learners: learn via written words.
K – kinesthetic learners: learn by trying or hands on activities.
People may have one dominant learning style. Most people have a combination of the visual, auditory, reading/writing or kinesthetic style in the VARK model, which is multi-modal style.
