Learning Style "Learning style refers to a student's best way of working in terms of personal and enviromental factors. For example, some students need quiet when they work, while others prefer interaction or some noise. Some students work best while sitting up straight (at a table or desk); others learn best in a more relaxed position. Differentiation based on a student's learning is one facet of learning profile differentiation."  (Tomlinson & Strickland, p. 354).

(Learning Style research conducted by Howard Gardner, and Robert Sternberg, afford frameworks for educators to conceptualize student learning and to plan lessons that are respectful of various learning styles.)
