Kinesthetic Learning


Definition: Kinesthetic Learning refers to one of the modalities that all learners use in order to approach and absorb new information. Every individual student has his or her own preferred learning style, and many people (children and adults) learn best when they are allowed to touch and physically manipulate tools that model or represent the lesson at hand. Kinesthetic learners assimilate new knowledge more efficiently through physical work (playing with manipulatives, building dioramas, working with scale models, or role-playing a situation) as opposed to simply hearing or seeing a lesson.
