Learning Style vs. Preference LEARNING STYLE: the method of learning that allows the student to learn best LEARNING PREFERENCE: Students have preferences regarding time of study, place of study, working in groups, and other similar aspects ALL of these elements put together determine a student’s individual style of learning.
V-A-K-T V-Visual—(seeing) A-Auditory(hearing) K-Kinesthetic(moving) T-Tactile(touching)
Kinesthetic/Tactile Student actually carrying out a physical activity, rather than listening to a lecture or watching a demonstration Prefer to touch objects Prefer doing over hearing or reading
Auditory Learning A student learns most effectively by listening to information delivered orally, in lectures, speeches, or class discussion Prefers to listen instead of read
Visual Learning Students associate ideas, concepts, data, and other information with images and represent them through pictures or graphs Pictures or maps Prefer looking at a diagram before putting something together
