This literature review was undertaken to determine the use of VAK learning strategies within the classroom and how they have developed within education over the last forty years. Research was carried out and information was extracted from some of the more well-known figures in education theory as well as the inventors of learning style theories themselves. Since it is a literature review, both sides of the argument are presented with suggestions as to how and why learning styles are required to aid pupil progress or, as the case may be, not needed. Included alongside this research are my own findings and examples through personal experience and how they correlate to this investigation, as well as a reflection on what more could be done within the field to further improve research on a broader scale to incorporate all types of learner.
