Research Shows That"What Are the 4 VARK Learning Styles?"About. N.p., n.d. Web. 06 Nov. 2014.Learning styles help identify how a person learns.The learning style concept became popular in the 1970s.There isnt a lot of evidence that shows a persons learning style influences their learning results.Learning styles are ways to categorize groups of learners. VARK is the most popular learning style model.VARK categorizes learners into four groups, visual, auditory, reading and writing and kinesthetic learners.Visual learners learn more with pictures, movies, and diagrams. Third paragraph.Auditory learners learn better with music, discussion, and lectures. Third paragraph.Reading and writing learners tend to understand more when they make lists, read textbooks, and take notes. Third paragraph.Kinesthetic learners are able to learn easier when they are able to move around and do more hands-on activity. Research Shows That"Different Learning Styles in Education." Education.com. N.p., n.d. Web. 24 Oct. 2014.Everyone learns differently and has their own learning style.Neil Fleming developed a learning style model in 1987 called VAK. VAK stands for the first letters of the different styles which are visual, auditory and kinesthetic. After more research Fleming updated VAK by adding another learning style read/write so now his model is called VARK. No one has just one learning style. People who have the visual learning style can see something and store that information. Visual learners like to deal in the details and usually are good readers and organizers. They can be distracted easily and remember a face more that a name. They also need eye contact to focus on what a person is talking about. People who are auditory learners like to be told things rather than read them. People who are kinesthetic learners learn by actually doing the task or physically touching what they are learning about. A kinesthetic learner usually are good in the outdoors, are good in sports or drama, they show their feeling through physical action, and they like to figure things out for themselves. They sometimes get labeled as difficult or have ADHD.
