Kinaesthetic Learning Style
Kinaesthetic Learning Style is one of the three different learning styles popularized by Neil D. Fleming in his VAK (visual - auditory - kinaesthetic) model of learning. Kinaesthetic learning represents the relative importance of some manner of physical activity to the learning process, which means that kinaesthetic learners need to be actively doing something while learning in order to truly understand the materials (Roell, 2017).
Kinaesthetic learners like to be actively involved in the learning process, and learn best through hands-on activities and movement (Baker, Kidspot). Therefore, kinaesthetic learners: want to actually do whatever is being talked about or learned, like to move around while listening or talking, touch things in order to learn about them, make things with their hands, and they remember best when they make things for their studies (Baker, Kidspot). In addition, kinaesthetic learners prefer making charts or posters for group projects to gathering the information, remember spelling words better if they write them several times, love to work with their hands, manipulate objects, and take a more active approach to learning in general (Houghton College). These learners, however, typically have a short attention span, so they sometimes can be misdiagnosed as or troublemakers because the more traditional visual or auditory learning styles do not work for them.
Kinaesthetic learners also have many strengths
