Theory: Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic Learning Does NOT Exist

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.
