It retains aural but adds an important new element: that of verbalization.

Perceptual Learning Styles

  1. Print: A person who learns best through reading books, journals, or magazines, and writing assignments.
  2. Aural: A person who learns best through listening to lectures and audio tapes.
  3. Interactive: Individuals who learn best through verbalization in small group discussions, question-and-answer sessions, and debate activities.
  4. Visual: A person who learns best through observation of films, videotapes, pictures, slides, graphs, tables, and demonstrations.
  5. Haptic: Individuals who learn best through the sense of touch in a “hands on” approach to learning, such as project construction, drawing, and model building.
  6. Kinesthetic: A person who learns best while moving, by participating in simulations, physical motion activities, and physical games.
