Did you know that in 1987 New Zealand, teacher Neil Fleming developed the VARK model to help his students understand more about their individual learning styles? When students are unsure of their learning style, they can often become frustrated and lose motivation. The VARK Model is a great tool to help gauge a students learning style and helps them retain more information for their studies.
V.A.R.K. Stands for: Visual, Aural, Reading/Writing and Kinesthetic
If you are a Read/Write Learner then you are the type of learner who prefers to use lists, titles, notes and headings, as well as choosing to use bullet points and dictionaries. Lists, notes, handouts, printed documents, textbooks and any other text-based formats are the best option for you.
People with reading and writing preference like to use lists and organise their knowledge into categories, arrange words into an order or structure they can understand quickly and prefer the clarity that comes with things written down.
When studying as a Read/Write Learner use more text-based presentations and notes. Print out media found online and organise any written media or rewrite content to help you retain more information.
