Some people are “visual learners,” meaning they learn best when some sort of imagery such as maps, flow charts and diagrams is used. When there’s too much text on a page, a visual learner is likely to lose interest quickly. To the contrary, others might learn best when there are more words than images. These people are categorized as “read/write learners,” and more words on a page is beneficial to these individuals. Other types of learners include aural/auditory learners, multimodal learners and kinesthetic learners, or people who need a hands-on experience and put theory into practice.
