Different Types of Learners in the Classroom


There are several different models to classify learning styles, but all of them describe the different ways people process and internalize new information, how they prefer to structure their learning, and how they view themselves in relation to others and the world.

One of the most well-known and accepted models of classifying learning styles is the VARK model developed by Neil Fleming, a teacher from New Zealand, in 1987. The VARK model classifies learners into four types based on how they take in new material, highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of each and offering teaching strategies and study tips. The four types described by the VARK model are visual learners, auditory learners, reading/writing learners and kinesthetic learners (hence the name VARK).
