Resources for Adult Students with a Kinesethetic Learning Style

It can take a long time to sort through the pages and pages of Internet sites regarding learning styles. We wanted a quicker way to find helpful information, so we put together this list of resources regarding the tactile-kinesthetic learning style.

What is a learning style? People learn in different ways. Some like to see something done before trying it on their own. They are visual learners. Others want to listen to information, to hear instructions. These students are considered auditory learners. Some students want to do a task while they are learning it. They want to touch the material involved, walk through the paces. These are tactile-kinesthetic learners.

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, kinesthesia is the sensation felt in your muscles and joints when you move your body. You don't really need a test to tell you what your learning style is, although they are available. Most people know from experience how they prefer to learn. Are you a tactile-kinesthetic learner? These resources are for you.
