Why the Widespread Belief in 'Learning Styles' Is Not Just Wrong; It's Also Dangerous | Big Think

Why the Widespread Belief in 'Learning Styles' Is Not Just Wrong; It's Also Dangerous | Big Think | Student Support | Scoop.it
Dr. Tesia Marshik who is an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse walks us through the extensive evidence that learning styles don't exist, before looking at why the belief is so widespread and why the belief is such a serious problem.

Two reasons to stop believing this myth: 1) It's a waste of time and resources. 2) Stop labeling students.

Includes a video by Dr Tesia Mashik on the topic.

Hands-on: Child-friendly YouTube Kids app launches on Android and iOS

Hands-on: Child-friendly YouTube Kids app launches on Android and iOS | Student Support | Scoop.it
YouTube is a fantastic way to keep your kids entertained with a tablet or smartphone, but it’s also a little concerning. You just never know if your child will end up using the suggested videos feature to jump from Sesame Street’s Elmo to a drunk Elmo parody, or view inappropriate advertising.

Google is aiming to solve that problem with a new app called YouTube Kids available on Monday for Android and iOS. The Kurio and nabi kids’ tablets will also receive the app in the coming weeks.

Early reports about the app surfaced late last week, but details were a little thin. Now that the app is available we can say that at first glance this app should appeal to parents and kids alike.
