Everybody learns differently, and a few years ago we had the VAK - Visual Auditory and Kinetic model of learning.
I like the model as it is quite simple
and most students fit quite easily into one of the categories.
The schooling system in most places
in the world is based on a visual system. The teacher and blackboard at
the front and everybody looks at the teacher. As they say ‘One picture
is worth a thousand words.’ And that is very true of visual people.
Next in line is ‘A’ for auditory. These students learn predominately by listening, so they listen to the teacher as opposed to looking at her or him. Now we have a bit of a paradox here, as learning to read is a listening skill not a looking skill. Even though we are reading by looking at words we are actually reading in our ears. We have to start by hearing the words to match them with words we have heard when we speak.

One problem we have with people having trouble with reading is actually a hearing problem. The child cannot hear the words properly so she is jumbling them up. So if you suspect there is something wrong with the kid’s hearing get their ears checked. That might be the root of the problem, but it doesn’t end there.
You still have to teach
them to read.
The last one is K for Kinetic, which in a
nutshell means the kid likes to do things using hands or body. They love
to make things so this group would love to make the book
as opposed to read it. These are the people who can easily get left behind
in the education system of today as they like to move around and they have
lots of trouble sitting still behind desks while watching somebody writing
on a blackboard.
These kids excel at kindergarten
but as soon as they end up in a classroom, problems start to rise. They
just don’t like to sit still. When kids that belong to this group have
problems, it is usually movement problems so walk around reading the book.
I think this group might learn better on a computer as they have a mouse
to play with.
aloud uses all these three learning styles. For Visual you are looking
at the words, for Auditory you are listening to the words and Kinetic you
are doing something by speaking the words. So it doesn’t matter which
style you a dominate in you are still learning according to the style that
The main reason I introduced the VAK
model is because if you can work out which learning style your kid is, you
can teach to it and according to the experts the kids should learn faster
and retain more.
