Today I would like to discuss the Kinesthetic learner. Kinesthetic learning is also known as tactile learning, or learning through some sort of physical activity. These learners need to ‘do something’ with information in order to learn and retain it. This style of learning makes us about 5% of the population. Tactile learners tend to be discovery learners and often tend to struggle when learning requires only reading and listening. In the general classroom, these learners may stand out because of their constant need to move, however, short and long-term memories are both strengthened through the use of movement.
