“Learning styles” also known as our “representational systems” determine how we learn. Some of us take in more information through our eyes, we call them “Visual” while others are predominately “Kinesthetic.” Kinesthetic learners consume information more easily through physical exercises and need to wriggle or move to improve retention.
Less of our population is auditory. Auditory learners need to hear information delivered in entertaining ways and variable tones. Though due to the digital age, more children need to “think” and “process thoughts” and so are becoming “Auditory digital.”
