                     VARK INVENTORY LEARNING STYLE

The purpose of this report is to show that people have a variety of different
approaches of learning and how people use information for effective learning,
communicate more effectively, and perform well in tests and examinations.

In order to be able to identify our learning style to understand the different
learning strategies that can we applied in our studies we will use a guide to
learning styles known as VARK . The acronym VARK stands for Visual, Aural,
Read/write, and Kinesthetic sensory modalities that are used for learning
information. There is some overlap between categories.

VARK is a questionnaire that provides users with a profile of their learning
preferences. These preferences are about the ways that they want to take-in and
give-out information

My scores were:

Visual: 1
Aural: 2
Read/Write: 6
Kinesthetic: 7

I have a multimodal (RK) learning prefence.

Multimodal Study Strategies
The multimodal style of learning means that I have a mixed combination of
potentialities of the learning styles and I can be more flexible about how I take in
and give out information.

The 1 in the VISUAL category means that I am lacking potential in that area as a
learning style. But I have a vary balance learning style. 60% of the population has
that particular style.

One advantage of being multimodal is that I can adapt to different teachers’
styles; so I am probably holistic rather than reductionist in my approach. And I
could be effective in different circumstances and environment. I prefer to draw in
order to be able to understand ideas.

According to my score, KINAESTHETIC category is the highest which means
that I need to do things to understand and for me the ideas are are only valuable
if they sound practical, real, and relevant to me.
The VARK Questionnaire Results : Visual: 1; Aural: 2; Read/Write: 6; Kinaesthetic: 7

                                             manual.


   In conclusion VARK can be a powerful tool to understand how to relate to others
   and, any understanding of ourselves can be beneficial. Since I was able to
   identify my own learning style, I could noticed that I have some weaknesses that
   I need to improve, especially in the visual and aural categories.

   The strength of the VARK questionnaire is that it provides strategies that can
   lead to success in any learning environment. It treats people as different, not
   dumb and suggests that some strategies may be helpful and some harmful. The
   answer is to use the modes we prefer and avoid those that we do not like.

2 vark inventory learning style

  • 1. Ana Mercedes García. English Major Year 2011 Management of Technological Resources for the Teaching and Administration of the English Language (Part III) VARK INVENTORY LEARNING STYLE The purpose of this report is to show that people have a variety of different approaches of learning and how people use information for effective learning, communicate more effectively, and perform well in tests and examinations. In order to be able to identify our learning style to understand the different learning strategies that can we applied in our studies we will use a guide to learning styles known as VARK . The acronym VARK stands for Visual, Aural, Read/write, and Kinesthetic sensory modalities that are used for learning information. There is some overlap between categories. VARK is a questionnaire that provides users with a profile of their learning preferences. These preferences are about the ways that they want to take-in and give-out information My scores were: Visual: 1 Aural: 2 Read/Write: 6 Kinesthetic: 7 I have a multimodal (RK) learning prefence. Multimodal Study Strategies The multimodal style of learning means that I have a mixed combination of potentialities of the learning styles and I can be more flexible about how I take in and give out information. The 1 in the VISUAL category means that I am lacking potential in that area as a learning style. But I have a vary balance learning style. 60% of the population has that particular style. One advantage of being multimodal is that I can adapt to different teachers’ styles; so I am probably holistic rather than reductionist in my approach. And I could be effective in different circumstances and environment. I prefer to draw in order to be able to understand ideas. According to my score, KINAESTHETIC category is the highest which means that I need to do things to understand and for me the ideas are are only valuable if they sound practical, real, and relevant to me.

In conclusion VARK can be a powerful tool to understand how to relate to others and, any understanding of ourselves can be beneficial. Since I was able to identify my own learning style, I could noticed that I have some weaknesses that I need to improve, especially in the visual and aural categories. The strength of the VARK questionnaire is that it provides strategies that can lead to success in any learning environment. It treats people as different, not dumb and suggests that some strategies may be helpful and some harmful. The answer is to use the modes we prefer and avoid those that we do not like.
