Visual - Visual Learners prefer the use of images, maps, and graphic organizers to access and understand new information
Auditory - Auditory Learners best understand new information through listening and speaking in situations such as lectures and group discussions. Aural (Audiory) learners use repetition as a study technique and benefit from the use of mnemonic devices.
Kinesthetic - Kinesthetic Learners best understand information through tactile representation of information. These students are hands on learners who learn best through figuring out by hand (i.e. Understanding how a clock works by putting one together).
