The idea of learning styles usually refers to a preferred way of learning. It implies that each individual has a natural inclination toward learning of some kind and, that if that preference can be identified, teaching and learning experiences can be provided to help that person learn more effectively. Learning styles theory is not intended to pigeonhole or type people, but to understand better the ways they learn. Helping children to identify the ways that they learn best and providing them with opportunities to use all their senses and different intelligences is one of the key challenges for policy makers, teachers and parents alike.
