Entertainment Planet: Edutainment needs to be VARK

Entertainment Planet: Edutainment needs to be VARK

Did you know that the work of Visionary Artists Resources Including Other Unique Services (V.A.R.I.O.U.S. Media, 501c3) is ranked number 2 and 3 in a Google search for Edutainment Venue. Vark was #1. Vark describes the idea of using multimedia in ways supportive of the learning needs of people visiting the venue from different cultural and language background, not to mention some people learn better aurally and others,kinesthetically.

Something to take into consideration when building a Creativity Cafe edutainment venue in your part of the world! Most people either knowingly or not have a preference for the way by which they take in information and learn from it, some people will have a specific VARK category, whilst others are known as ‘multimodal’ which means that they may share preferences from two or more categories.

In order to appeal to all members of their audiences, edutainment venues need to provide information in all VARK formats. Otherwise the messages that the venues are trying to convey may be lost on certain members of their audience.
