Description This research aims to identify the implementation of multisensory learning at elementary schools in Jakarta. The method used through surveys to 50 elementary schools’ teachers in 5 schools. Data was collected by using questionnaire that revealed the implementation of multisensory learning. The result of this study showed that the use of multisensory learning could be more effective in maximizing learning. Through multisensory learning, teacher can in-volve students actively in the learning process and facilitate all students with different learning styles. Multisensory learning can be used in all lesson that integrated with curriculum and has significant implications in the real-life learning. The obstacle in implementing this learning model is founded about the lack of using of audiovisual technology and many schools do not implemented the multisensory learning.
