People around the world are differentiated by their preferred learning methods. There are those who learn best by listening (auditory learners) and those who need to see that which they are to remember (visual learners). There are also those whose thought processes depend on motor and sensory stimulation. The latter are called kinesthetic learners.
Young kinesthetic learners at school are usually perceived as fidgety and rude. However, an attentive teacher will notice that, for them, movement, sensations (touch, pressure, temperature) and action are a necessary component of the learning process.
