Accommodating learning style

A result is that we often label those who use these learning styles and techniques as �bright.� Those who use less favored learning styles often find themselves in lower classes, with various not-so-complimentary labels and sometimes lower quality teaching.

Based on Kolb’s theory, there are two variables that determine the learning style preference of the individual: Looking at issues from various perspectives, characterized as sensitive, with a preference to watch rather than do something.

Those with this learning style have a better ability to generate ideas and engage in brainstorming, enjoy gathering information, are often interested in people, imaginative and emotional, arts-oriented, have excellent group-work skills, and are open to concrete feedback.

Thus, the same learner may be in need of different approaches to learning in different situations.

Additionally, discussion on the implication of Learning styles inventory for teaching is not drawn from research findings but rather from theory.

This approach is one that educators have only recently started to recognize.

Traditional schooling used (and continues to use) mainly linguistic and logical teaching methods.

Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances. Many people recognize that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques.
