A tactile learner needs the stimulation of touch to learn best.
Tactile learners benefit from products that provide a hands-on approach to learning. The manipulation of objects through touch lets students interact and explore through multiple senses. Beading, pegging, lacing, and tracing are examples of products that can stimulate tactile learning while engaging cognition through physical movement.
A tactile learner needs the stimulation of touch to learn best. They may not understand a concept simply from hearing someone talk about it or by reading about it. Playing with manipulatives that they can move around engages tactile learners, while their fingers provide a direct conduit for transmitting information to their brain. They are likely to learn more from actually doing a hands-on experiment themselves than from watching a demonstration.
