Learning styles is one aspect of pedagogy that needs to be considered in the learning process. Understanding of material will be achieved if it is by the learning styles. Children do not have experience in the learning process, so identification of children learning styles is needed. The cognitive, psycho-motor and emotional abilities of children in each varying age range become a factor that determines learning styles. Learning styles tend to be recommended to children in the form of visual, audio, read/write and kinesthetic. Identification can be made towards learning styles that are by the child's preferences. The use of digital applications will be more accurate when compared to questionnaires in identifying learning styles. The presentation of interactive material and immersive in each learning styles can help identify children's learning styles. The assessment of material understanding was clarified in elicitation apps. The material evaluation was presented in the form of a set of questions related to the material presented. Interactions in the evaluation activities in the apps were presented according to the child's learning styles. Output produced by the application can be used by learning application developers, teachers, or parents in identifying children's learning styles.
