30 Surprising (And Controversial) Ways Students Learn - Edudemic | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
What are the real ways students learn? Is daydreaming a good thing? Should they play violent video games? A new report takes a close look.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

As teachers we must ue the tools at hand to engage our students.  No great insight here, but it does take an act of open minded intent to set aside our biases and really teach in the 21st century.

What are the differences in learning styles between students and educators who teach and/or design their e-learning environments? Are there variations in the learning styles of students at different levels of study? How may we use this learning styles data to inform the design in e-learning environments?

How can Instructional Design be visual as well as engaging?

"e-Learning has been using this ‘show, don’t tell’ approach for a long time. However, although scenarios and interactions go a long way to involving the learner in the course, I think we need to pay greater attention to the different styles of learning. You’re probably familiar with Fleming’s VAK/VARK model of three ‘types’ of learners: visual, auditory and kinaesthetic. He makes the argument that some learn best through visual aids such as diagrams, others through discussion, and other by physically carrying out tasks. Although I think this is too ‘neat’ a categorisation of learners, as a mixture of learning types is more stimulating than a single format, I find this model useful for considering all the different elements that make up a good course."
