Kinesthetics Learning

What is kinesthetics learning?

The kinesthetic learner is often characterized as a “hands-on” person, who learns best through physical activity. Kinesthetics Learning refers to the ability of one’s body to feel, receive, and respond. It is about using all five senses in order for a person to learn better.

Through kinesthetic learning experiences, you can distinguish physical objects by their shape or size as well as even identify an odor just from its texture on the skin! Kinesthetics learning is an instructional strategy that focuses on the student’s physical involvement in learning. It involves students moving their bodies around to learn, explore and create.

Kinesthetic learners are often visual or auditory learners who need hands-on activities in order to understand concepts learned in class which could otherwise be difficult for them to grasp using traditional methods of instruction like lectures or reading textbooks alone.
