Learning modalities

Learning Modalities

Learning Modalities is defined as ways that people receive and process information. There are three main modalities:

  • Visual (learn by seeing or observing).

  • Auditory (learn by listening).

  • Kinesthetic/tactile (learn by doing).

Activity 1

Activity 1

  • Complete a Learning Styles Inventory (LSI).

  • Carefully study the LSI results for the class. What was the type of learner breakdown for the class?

  • How should LSI results be used in the classroom?

  • What effect could learning styles have on a classroom’s day-to-day routines and activities?
