Kinesthetic Learning

Kinesthetic learning is another form of obtaining and deriving information holistically. It is the learning where the student learns through the medium of simulations, presentations, and through the hands-on environment. Kinesthetic learning refers to learning with full-body movements. 

In the same way, as tactile learning goes, in which learning happens more through touching, drawing, and building in educational situations, the said learning happens through the movement of body parts. This learning involves a more comprehensive way of learning which follows real-life based and application-based situations. 

In kinesthetic learning, the learners exhibit great motor ability and memory power to respond to learning. It forms a part of VARK modalities, i.e. visual, aural, read/write, and kinesthetic way of learning. The learners with kinesthetic preferences learn through active movements and experiences. This type of learning is best practiced when any real-life examples or situations are used to impart knowledge. 

This type of learning matches perfectly in situations like field trips, hands-on learning, application-based competition, role plays, etc. Few examples of the said type of learning could be underlining notes while shaking legs or moving back and forth while memorizing any notes.
