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?

This infographic explores math in America. Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans is "functionally innumerate"? What does this mean? Sixty-two million Americans cannot do basic math such as adding fractions, working with measurement or doing whole number problems. 

Learn about how other countries compare to the U.S., how the U.S. compares to Singapore and South Korea in terms of "high achiever", what happens when we "hate" math, and what could be done to help the next generation succeed in math.

Learning styles and pedagogy in post-16 learning: a systematic and critical review | The Tertiary Education Research Database

Learning styles and pedagogy in post-16 learning: a systematic and critical review | The Tertiary Education Research Database | Math Inquiry Project | Scoop.it

Learning style instruments are widely used but not enough is known about their reliability and validity and their impact on pedagogy in post-16 learning. This report documents work from a project commissioned by the Learning and Skills Development Agency (LSDA) to carry out an extensive review of research on post-16 learning styles, to evaluate the main models of learning styles, and to discuss the implications of learning styles for post-16 teaching and learning. The following research questions were addressed: What models of learning styles are influential and potentially influential? What empirical evidence is there to support the claims made for these models? What are the broad implications for pedagogy of these models? What empirical evidence is there that models of learning styles have an impact on students’ learning? The project identified the range of models that are available and influential or potentially influential in research and practice, located these models within identifiable ‘families’ of ideas about learning styles, evaluated the theories, claims and applications of these models, with a particular focus on evaluating the authors’ claims for reliability and validity, evaluated the claims made for the pedagogical implications of the selected models of learning styles, identified what gaps there are in current knowledge and what future research is needed in this area, and made recommendations and drew conclusions about the research field as a whole. In conclusion, the implications for pedagogy are drawn out and recommendations and conclusions are offered for practitioners, policymakers and the research community. The report concludes that it matters fundamentally which model is chosen. A second report (indexed at TD/TNC 79.72) discusses the appeal of learning styles as well as offering an overview of ways in which political and institutional contexts in the learning and skills sector affect the ways that learning styles might be put into practice.

Learning Styles: Popular Despite Lack of Evidence

Learning Styles: Popular Despite Lack of Evidence | Math Inquiry Project | Scoop.it

"The term 'learning styles' refers to the concept that individuals differ in regard to what mode of instruction or study is most effective for them. Proponents of learning-style assessment contend that optimal instruction requires diagnosing individuals' learning style and tailoring instruction accordingly. However, at present, there is no adequate evidence base to justify incorporating learning-styles assessments into general educational practice. Thus, limited education resources would better be devoted to adopting other educational practices that have a strong evidence base, of which there are an increasing number." | via Sage Publications

Abstract

 

With the increase of online learning in the K-12 environment, research must turn to specific studies focused upon this level. One area of investigation surrounds the development of online course content and individualized student learning styles. This review found that although there is a vast body of research concerning online learning in the postsecondary environment, this is not true for K-12 education. Recent studies have begun the discussion for secondary school students as online learning becomes more prevalent and accepted as a means of learning. The lessons that these studies bring forward may be of particular interest to instructional designers and e-teachers in the K-12 environment.

ASCD Inservice: What You Need to Know About Learning Styles

ASCD Inservice: What You Need to Know About Learning Styles | Math Inquiry Project | Scoop.it
Teachers differentiate to three major considerations: readiness, interest, and learning profile. Matching instruction to students' readiness correlates strongest with academic growth, according to research.

"Learning profile is a fluid concept that includes how culture, gender, intelligence preference, and learning style might influence how a student approaches learning. Carol Tomlinson is quick to clarify that learning profile is not a synonym for learning style.

The "learning styles" approach to teaching has received a lot of criticism of late – particularly from three groups, Tomlinson told attendees at her ASCD Annual Conference session on the controversial topic."

You may find the slides that go with this article on her website:  http://www.caroltomlinson.com/Presentations/2012ASCD_LearningStyleControversy.pdf ;

Math Curriculum: How and Why It Needs To Change | Math Inquiry Project | Scoop.it

It seems that everyone is talking about math reform these days. But, what does that really mean? What does it or should it look like? The truth is there are many facets of what should make up math reform including things like assessment, understanding how students learn, metacognition, technology and math curriculum. This post will focus on the need to rethink math curriculum and the role of technology in transforming math curriculum.
