Since the 1 990s, more women than men have enrolled in college, earned higher grades, and majored in science or technology fields…
There are three basic types of classroom learning styles: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. These learning styles describe the most common ways that people learn. Individuals tend to instinctively prefer one style over the others; thus each person has a learning style that is dorninant even though he or she may also rely somewhat on the other approaches at different times and in different circumstances.
