Understanding the VARK Model: Visual, Auditory, Read/Write, and Kinesthetic Learning Styles

Overview of the VARK Learning Styles

The VARK model was designed by Neil Fleming in 1987. In this model, Fleming developed a way to help students learn more about their preferences. VARK learning styles are visual, auditory, read/write, and kinesthetic.

Students who have a visual learning style may often prefer sitting in the front of the classroom. They may prefer to highlight, or use a lot of connectors or diagrams, create graphic organizers, and may be seen taking more detailed notes which are very organized, often color coded or have other ways of making distinctions between the content.

For visual learners, we can try using sketchnotes. Sketchnotes are a combination of doodling and text that enables the processing of information to be quicker and that attaches more meaning to the content as students are creating and associating meaning with their own representation of it.

Auditory learners listen carefully and often focus on the tone or the rate of speech and may also benefit more by having supplemental resources like videos or audio components. If students working group, these learners benefit by more discussions and exchanging ideas, reading aloud and even repeating some content thinking out loud.

Some ideas that can help auditory learners are using Flipgrid to post a question and have students post responses, Synth to create a podcast to have the active listening component addressed, and even using strategies like “telephone” where you tell a story and then students have to retell it in their own words. Doing this type of activity leads students to focus on what you are saying but also processing it and summarizing it back to you in their own spoken words.

Read/write learners often prefer to have the text in some format. Whether they first write and then rewrite their notes, read over their notes each day for review and class preparation, they interact with written formats more often. Students may create diagrams and then convert them back into statements, making lists or arranging words in some type of hierarchy.

Students with this learning style may benefit more by creating presentations where they take a large quantity of information and then convert it into some presentation format. Some options could be using a blogging tool like Kidblog, or creating a presentation to tell a story such as Buncee, StoryboardThat or even PowerPoint. Students also can benefit from tools like Storybird or Book Creator where they can create their own digital book or create a print book that then could be used in the classroom.

Kinesthetic learners learn best through Hands-on learning opportunities. In classrooms today, students spend a lot of time sitting and more passively learning. There has been more discussion about the need for students to be more active in the classroom, even for teachers, who are getting rid of traditional desks and moving toward standing desks.  Students who have this learning style may become distracted because of the need to move or to be active in the classroom. As a law school student, I can recall prepping for the Bar exam and walking around and talking about different parts of the law or reading and moving around as I read a case. I've also noticed students doing this in the classroom.

Other possibilities are to give students opportunities to create with the content whether it is by making flashcards, creating some poster or other resource to use in the classroom. Providing graphic organizers are helpful so students can process the information and put it into a chart or some other format. Also with STEM and STEAM curriculum, makerspaces or project-based learning (PBL), giving students the opportunity to create a model of something promotes this hands-on learning.
