    • Tactile Learning Style
      By, Alexander De Vries
    • Tactile Learning Style
      Tactile learning is learning through feeling and movement. Their attention follows their hands. Learners of this style usually like to play sports, use molding clay, and build models.
    • Key people associated with the theory
      Neil D. Fleming, he designed the VARK model.
      VARK stands for, Visual, Auditory, Reading/Writing, and Kinesthetic/Tactile Learning.
    • Key points of Tactile Learning
      Tactile Learners are 30% of learners.
      Learn by doing, touching, or moving.
      Usually excel in Chemistry, Athletics, and/or Drama.
      Tactile Learners fidget during long lectures, they rather be doing something hands-on.
      While studying they like to take breaks and listen to loud music.
    • Classroom implications for the Teacher
      Shorter classes.
      Lab classes or more hands-on activities.
      Role-play the book or play.
      Have students break into groups.
      Play soft music during class time.
    • Classroom implications for the Student
      Using flash cards.
      Use memory games.
      Study with others or work with groups.
      Take short breaks.
      Sit near the front of the classroom and take notes.
      Record class lectures. Listen to them while walking or exercising.
    • What you think about the theory for your own teaching
      I would love to implement this into my classroom. It would be great if students can act out major events in our history or a scene from a book we just read. This learning style not only helps Tactile learners, it helps every learning style, just because the kids are moving doesn’t mean they aren’t reading, listening, or watching.
