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.
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.
