Learning styles

This powerpoint goes through a lesson teaching learning styles. It containes the theory and examples and a really good way to bring the class together with discussions.

    That you very much for this. I have to disagree with Timdreid's review, and think that it was quite harsh to review a resource, which clearly took time and effort to create, in this way! True, learning cannot be simplified to 3 'styles' but this is very useful when it comes to revision of a topic. Many students do not know how to revise, and at least identifying a particular learning style will give them a good base point to then go on and revise. Thank you for this resource :)

    I found it very useful. Most people learn through a mix of styles, we know that. But most do have a preference and anything that encourage people to self reflect and think about what they are doing, taking ownership of their own learning is great.

    Encouraging children to label themselves as a certain learning style is an awful thing to do and counteracts the aims of a healthy growth mindset. Moreover, extensive research has shown it is entirely false to think that children learn better by any one particular style, and indeed some research even shows that children learn more when they step outside their comfort zone. I've lost count of the number of times kids have said to me something like "sorry I can't do this worksheet because I'm a kinaesthetic learner" when really they just like e.g. football and mucking about, and saw their new label as a way of justifying not working. By all means teachers should plan their lessons with a variety of activities that stimulate learning in different ways, but presenting such simplistic, pseudoscientific nonsense to children in the the way you do in this powerpoint can only do harm to childrens' learning. We are supposed to be a research-informed profession, and you need to bring your pedagogy up to date.

    I like the way you apply the styles to people the students will know. Thank you.
