VARK Learning Styles


In this paper, we are evaluating the different learning styles of VARK model in a holistic context. Several sites assess learning styles. VARK has the advantage of an interactive questionnaire suitable for teenagers, and another for sports. The analysis covers four learning styles: auditory, visual, kinesthetic and read-write. Like any good online test, analysis of results leads to an explanation of the dominant style, as well as strategies to promote learning.

Multimodal Learning Style

The concept of multimodality comes from the finding in cognitive neuropsychology, brain function that are finely separated, comprehension and expression does not activate the same cortical areas (which language teachers are well aware when they evoke the notion of vocabulary called "active" or "passive" and that everyone can experience in finding that it can perfectly understand a foreign language and be unable to speak).

Preferably, the display of information in the form of drawings, diagrams, flowcharts, and all the symbolic lines, circles, trees and other elements that use the words teachers to provide information.

Aural (A)

This mode of perception describes a preference for information "by ear". Students with this modality are better taught through lectures, seminars, listening to recorded lessons, group discussions, web-chat, just talk about the subject.

Read / Write (R)

Preferably, the information displayed in the form of words. It's no secret that many academic methods exclusively focused on this mode. Mode of perception shifted to a text-output - reading and writing information in all its forms.

Kinesthetic (K)

By definition, this modality refers to the "preference perceptive use the experience ...
