We have ideas for other learning styles, too!
1. Do it!The most important way for a tactile, kinesthetic learner to learn is by doing! Whatever it is you're learning, do it if at all possible. Take it apart, hold it in your hands, go through the motions, do it. Whatever it is.
2. Attend eventsParticipating in events of any kind is a wonderful way for you to learn. If you can't find an event concerning your topic of study, consider creating one of your own. Talk about a learning experience!
3. Take field tripsA field trip can be anything from a visit to a museum to a hike in the woods. Many industries offer tours of their facilities. This is an excellent way to learn straight from the experts. Think outside the box here. Where could you go to learn something fascinating about your topic?
4. Express your learning with artCreate something artful that expresses what you're learning. This could be a drawing, a sculpture, a sand castle, a mosaic, anything. Create something with your hands, and you'll be sure to remember the experience.
5. Make a note of the environment in which you learnedWhen you make associations, you're most likely to remember whatever it is you're studying. Make a note of the environment in which you learned it--sight, sound, smells, taste, and, of course, touch.
6. FidgetFidgeting not only helps you lose weight, it can help you learn if you're a tactile learner. Change the ways in which you fidget, and the association will be an element of your memory. I'm not a huge fan of gum chewers, but chewing gum might be a technique you'll find helpful. Just don't annoy your neighbors with snapping and cracking.
7. DoodleI'm a little old-fashioned about drawing in books, but if it helps you learn, doodle in the margins of your books and notebooks. Draw pictures that help you remember the material.
8. Keep a worry rock in your pocketCultures around the world feature items their people hold in their hands to worry with--beads, rocks, talismans, all kinds of things. Keep something in your pocket or bag--a small, smooth rock maybe--that you can rub while you're learning.
9. Role play in a study groupStudy groups are great tools for tactile learners. If you can find the right group of people who are willing to learn with you, role playing can be an excellent way for you to help each other. Role playing can seem silly at first, but if you get great results, who cares?
