I trained as a maths teacher and I thought I should share this important idea with you. One of the most widely used theories in education is that of learning styles developed by Fleming and is known by the VARK model – sometimes shortened and simplified to VAR. Fleming claimed that visual learners have a preference for seeing (think in pictures; visual aids such as overhead slides, diagrams, handouts, etc.). Auditory learners best learn through listening (lectures, discussions, tapes, etc.). Tactile/kinesthetic learners prefer to learn via experience—moving, touching, and doing (active exploration of the world; science projects; experiments, etc.).

The next time you have an important meeting and you need to get your ideas across think about Fleming’ VAR model. Think about how what you say, write and illustrate compliment one another.
