Lessons which are planned in a way that suits the teacher's own preferred learning style can leave some pupils unable to understand the point of the lesson. Using an approach which embraces all three learning styles (visual, auditory, and kinaesthetic) provides opportunities for all pupils to learn. A lesson which has hands‐on activities and promotes discussion is one which suits all preferred learning styles. This is known as using a multi‐sensory approach to teaching, which encourages the use of a range of senses. It requires the use of more than one teaching strategy, which provides a balanced opportunity for pupils to learn through their own preferred style and for them to develop their ability to respond to other styles in the process.
