      Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic - VAK

      VAK, or Visual, Auditory and Kinesthetic, refers to one model of learning styles. The VAK model is comprised of three different learning styles, or preferred ways of learning. In some accounts, another style, tactile, is included.

      Example
      Dunn and Dunn's model of learning styles, which is frequently used in the American school system, is a VAK model.

      In the classroom
      Learners can be encouraged to think about their learning style and how it affects their work by trying a quiz to identify their preferences. If they understand how they prefer to think then they can learn how to optimise their work in the classroom, and also try alternative ways.

      This is nice , but the question is how to combine the three styles in teaching or learning one activity. Thanks
