Learning styles do NOT exist (Part 1)
This is the first in a two part argument about whether learning styles exist. Cognitive psychologist Daniel Willingham points out why the theories are incorrect (or our belief about the theories are incorrect).
In summary “good teaching is good teaching” You do not need to adjust your lessons to the student’s (non-existent) learning styles but perhaps focus on the best modality to enable the students to understand the content.
** The research has been collated and the evidence scrutinised: does not recommend teachers assessing student learning style.
One thought on “Theory: Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic Learning Does NOT Exist”
Thanks. I agree overall but interesting that in order to make this point…both a video with audio was used. Why not just write a paper and hope for the best meaning to be made from it?
