When I have students complete the their learning plans to prepare for evaluations, I review learning styles because I want them to be efficient in preparing for their evaluations. Many students are visual learners so the following chart would be helpful in reminding students what strategies to use for each learning style. I encourage students to use all learning styles and to continue to develop their less preferred learning styles. I tell my students learning styles are pathways to the brain so the more pathways you use, the better the results.

    Hi, Elona. Where can I get these visuals?

    This is great but I think you are probably developing additional learning modalities as it seems that learning styles themselves are myths

    Mathew,
    Thanks for sharing the link to the video that points out learning styles might be a myth. I encourage students to learn things by seeing, hearing and doing. My students will tell me they feel they learn better by seeing, hearing or doing things. Maybe there’s a placebo effect. If I think I can learn by seeing, hearing or doing things then I can. I find it useful to incorporate seeing, hearing and doing into my lessons as appropriate. I’d love to see the data that lead to the conclusions in the video.
