Learning Styles

Understanding learning styles can help you provide personalized learning that best suits the needs of all of your students. Learning styles are the ways people process information. Students’ preferred learning styles have a significant influence on both their behavior and their learning. Information that is accessed when students use their preferred learning styles shows an increase in students' levels of comprehension, motivation, and metacognition.

  • Bodily–kinesthetic
  • Interpersonal
  • Intrapersonal
  • Naturalistic
