3D Transition

VARK is a famous acronym in education. It describes learning styles for each and every student. “V” stands for visual, “A” is aural, “R” is reading/writing, and “K” is kinesthetic. No student will strictly fall under any of the four styles, but will likely be a mix of at least two. Aural (discussion/stories) and kinesthetic (senses) are often tied to active learning and always seem to be forgotten in classrooms. As a new teacher, one of the biggest challenges is creating lessons that hit every student’s learning styles. Can a classroom effectively incorporate these active learning styles to give the students a more wholistic learning experience? With demonstrations, or demos, entwined with successful driving questions, the students will be able to experience the lessons in new and very efficient ways.
