Teaching strategies for different learning types include color coding information to aid visual learners, reading study material aloud to cater to auditory learners, and teaching class outdoors for kinesthetic learning students. Encouraging students to read and write their own notes is another commonly used method.
The most widely used method of modeling learning styles is the VAK learning styles model; VAK stands for the three proposed learning types: visual, auditory and kinesthetic. By understanding how each category of learner absorbs information, a teacher can customize a learning plan based on her students' strengths and weaknesses. Some common ways to do this include using images and graphs, assigning oral reports and using games to reinforce concepts.
