They say diversity is the spice of life but in schools diversity is the backbone of learning. Have a look at your classroom, you will see a wide range of varying learning styles. But , as a teacher, do you tend to these learning styles ? Have you ever questioned whether your teaching method(s) really meet the learning needs of all your students or just a select few ? Answering these questions requires a little insight from both cognitive psychology and learning pedagogy.
A mixture of these two fields of study results in a direct application of Howard Gardner Multiple Intelligences ( cognitive psychology ) within a classroom context ( learning styles ). Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has previously, and in several posts, featured some awesome posters on multiple intelligence and today I am sharing with you another equally interesting graphic on the different learning styles your students have. Please have a look and share with us your views. Enjoy
