Do Learning Styles Really Exist?
The idea of learning styles is widespread throughout the field of pedagogy and people are often categorized according to their learning style. However, in scientific research, there has been no credible evidence that supports the existence of learning styles. This video defines learning styles theory, talks about some previous research in the field of pedagogy and explains why there is no true basis behind the idea of learning styles. In addition, Dr. Joseph Kim, an associate professor of psychology, neuroscience and behaviour at McMaster University, speaks about the non-existence of learning styles. This video was created by fourth year McMaster students interested in education and knowledge translation: Dana Abu-Jazar, Ana Kovacevic, Amber Kayed, Jasleen Khaira, Babak Nouhi, Simranpal Dhanju, Ria Oommen, and Nisha Gajaria.

Learning styles & the importance of critical self-reflection | Tesia Marshik | TEDxUWLaCrosse
The belief in learning styles is so widespread, it is considered to be common sense. Few people ever challenge this belief, which has been deeply ingrained in our educational system. Teachers are routinely told that in order to be effective educators, they must identify & cater to individual students' learning styles; it is estimated that around 90% of students believe that they have a specific learning style but research suggests that learning styles don't actually exist! This presentation focuses on debunking this myth via research findings, explaining how/why the belief in learning styles is problematic, and examining the reasons why the belief persists despite the lack of evidence. Dr. Tesia Marshik is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Her research interests in educational psychology include student motivation, self-regulation, and teacher-student relationships.

Learning Styles & Multiple Intelligences: Theory Integration
Note: Recent Research has disputed the effectiveness of learning styles: The idea of this video is to take Gardner's Multiple Intelligences and use them as student learning styles, although Gardner specifically says learning styles are NOT multiple intelligences SUPPORT THIS CHANNEL: Help keep me going with a tip or contribution https://paypal.me/frankavella?locale.x=en_US TEACHERSPAYTEACHERS STORE Classroom Posters, Courses, Lessons, Presentations, and More https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Teachings-In-Education TEESPRING IN EDUCATiON Stickers, Dress Down Gear, Phone Cases, Coffee Mugs, and More https://teespring.com/stores/teespring-in-education FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT & ON-SITE TRAININGS CONTACT: [email protected] SOCIAL MEDIA https://www.linkedin.com/in/frank-avella-404b59b5/ https://twitter.com/frank_avella Get your Learning Styles Classroom Posters at TPT Store: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Learning-Styles-Classroom-Posters-Multiple-Intelligences-3557244 Student learning styles and multiple intelligences are described and explored in this video. Seven different learning styles are described in detail and explained fully for teachers and educators in all grade levels and disciplines. This video gives credit to howard gardner and his work on multiple intelligences. The video also explains why multiple intelligences are so important to classroom teachers. The first learning style mentioned is the interpersonal learner also known as the social learner. That is followed by the opposite type of learner, which is the intrapersonal learner, sometimes called the solitary learner. Other learning styles included are kinesthetic (physical), verbal or linguistic, auditory or aural, logical or mathematical, and visual. Definition and theory surrounding multiples intelligences are provided throughout along with with suggestions that educators can make to improve their instruction for these students.

Learning Styles - A Complete Myth
The learning styles myth. Are you a visual learner? Or auditory or kinesthetic? Who cares - it's all a complete myth! What student doesn't know about learning styles? You've probably even taken a learning style quiz or questionnaire to confirm the best way for you to study and learn. Unfortunately, despite the concept of learning styles being around since the 1970's, the latest academic research now shows learning styles don't exist. Want to learn more?

Unlearning Learning Styles
“I am an auditory learner, and this class doesn’t fit my learning style!” We’ve all heard that before from either a friend or the student sitting beside us in class. The topic of learning styles is a controversial one in the field of pedagogy, i.e. the teaching methods and practises. Generally, students categorize themselves as one of the following types of learner: visual, auditory, verbal, or kinesthetic. However, the idea that students learn best when they receive information in their preferred learning style is extremely flawed. Currently, there is no scientific research that supports the existence of learning styles. This video will discuss where this (incorrect!) theory branched from, and why it continues to be popular among educators and students - despite the lack of support. From there, we will delve into scientific studies that show that matching teaching styles to a specific learning style does not improve the outcomes. With this, we hope to enlighten students and educators about ways to enhance learning inside and outside the classroom!

This video lesson presents the various classroom management styles for educators and teachers to compare to their own style of management. The authoritarian classroom management style is known for strict enforcement of rules but very little involvement from the teacher. The lesson continues with the authoritative style, where teachers do have control of their students, and the teacher cares for their students as well. Other styles include the permissive styles. One of the least effect style in education. This style shows a teacher that doesn't really care for his students, and doesn't control their behavior either. Lastly the indulgent teacher, which cares for the students, but doesn't have any behavior expectations, classroom rules, or procedures.

A Japanese Method to Develop Creativity in Kids
Japanese people are known for their intelligence, politeness, and wellness. Why is this nation so unique and different from the rest of the world? It seems we’ve found the answer – they have an incredibly cool education system and unique teaching methods! There is a unique method in Japanese schools for developing creativity in kids. We believe that the whole world needs to adopt it! It’s called “Nameless paints.” In this video, we'll tell you how it works. Watch till the end – there is a small but brilliant bonus for you. Other videos you might like: 15 Examples of Japanese Etiquette That Will Drive You Crazy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SR-H7yr9Ceo& Why Japanese Are So Thin According to Science https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jxsnYsA549Y& 8 Japanese Parenting Rules All Kids Need https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_gnpIs8qMo& TIMESTAMPS: “Nameless paints” 0:34 Manners before knowledge 2:58 The academic year starts on April 1st 3:33 Students clean their school themselves 4:18 School lunch is provided on a standardized menu 4:59 After-school workshops are very popular 5:32 Students learn Japanese calligraphy and poetry 6:15 Students have to wear school uniform 6:50 The school attendance rate is about 99.99% 7:23 A single test decides the students’ futures 7:55 College years are the best ’holidays’ in life 8:32 SUMMARY: - “Nameless paints” includes ten tubes that don’t have color names such as “yellow,” “blue,” or “green.” Instead, there are only spots of a particular color or colors on each tube. As you can see, the spots are also different sizes. - In Japanese schools, students don’t take any exams until they reach grade four (the age of 10). The goal for the first three years of school is not to judge the child’s knowledge, but to establish good manners and to develop their character. - While most schools in the world begin their academic year in September or October, in Japan, it is April that marks the start of the academic and business calendar. The first day of school often coincides with one of the most beautiful natural phenomena — the time of cherry blossom. - In Japanese schools, students have to clean the classrooms, cafeterias, and even toilets all by themselves. Most Japanese schools do not employ janitors or custodians. - All classmates eat in their classroom together with the teacher. This helps build positive teacher-student relationships. - To get into a good junior high school, most Japanese students enter a preparatory school or attend private after-school workshops. - Japanese calligraphy, or Shodo, involves dipping a bamboo brush in ink and using it to write hieroglyphs on rice paper. - While some schools have their attire, traditional Japanese school uniform consists of a military style for boys and a sailor outfit for girls. - At the end of high school, Japanese students have to take an exam that determines their future. A student can choose one college they would like to go to, and that college has a particular score requirement. - Having gone through ‘examination hell,’ Japanese students usually take a little break. In this country, college is often considered the best years of a person’s life. Sometimes, Japanese people call this period a ‘vacation’ before work.

The Myth of Learning Styles
Abstract Learning styles (innate learner preferences for content delivered via instructional methods that are visual, auditory, kinesthetic, etc.) seem ubiquitous in education. In this webinar, we will debunk the myth of learning styles, discussing the available research and data. Description The notion of learning styles, sometimes known as the meshing hypothesis (see: https://www.tcsedtech.com/blog/avoid-the-sizzle-go-for-the-steak), seems to universally permeate education - whether k-12, higher ed, or corporate training & development. The concept of learning styles is that if a learner’s innate preference favors a visual approach, then the teacher should work to present the material in a visual manner and eschew other tactics, such as lecturing or lab work. This teacher might look for a relevant video or utilize visual aids. Whatever the innate learning preference, the teacher will work to accommodate the student. Learning styles are commonly cited in blog posts and literature on teaching and learning. Over the years, people have suggested dozens of different learning styles. However, many of the empirical studies that have sought to establish the validity of the meshing hypothesis either cannot confirm the validity, or conclude that it is not a valid educational construct. Many researchers and industry leaders are now touting the meshing hypothesis as a spurious educational fallacy. In this webinar, we will review the data, discuss the implications of learning styles, and examine empirically-supported alternatives to the meshing hypothesis. Learning Objectives 1. Review the research about learning styles 2. Explore alternatives to the meshing hypothesis Presenter Bio: Sean Nufer is the Director of Educational Technology at TCS Education System.

Breaking News  - There is NO such thing as 'different learning styles'
It can be an easy excuse to explain away poor grades.But a new study claims that having a 'different learning style' isn't a legitimate reason for failing to learn.In fact, scientists believe it's a myth that some people learn better using different methods, such as 'visual learning.'Despite this, as many as 96 per cent of teachers subscribe to the idea of learning styles.In recent years, the idea of different 'learning styles' improving academic results has come under fire from experts.The basic premise of the long-standing theory is that 'visual learners' learn best through seeing, 'auditory learners' learn best through hearing and 'kinesthetic learners' learn best through touching.But according to the authors of the new study, from Indiana University, there is little evidence to back up the claim that learning styles improve academic performance.'Many students still hold to the conventional wisdom that learning styles are legitimate, and may adapt their outside-of-class study strategies to match these learning styles,' the authors wrote in the study.The scientists gathered 426 undergraduate students at the university who completed an online learning style surveyThe survey, called Vark, is one of the internet's most popular learning style assessment services and claims to pick out whether you learn best visually, by listening, through reading and writing, or by doing practically.Researchers then enrolled each student in an anatomy course with participants told to follow the revision tips given by the Vark survey.After gathering this information, the researchers then asked the students at a later date about the sort of revision methods they had used.On top of this, the researchers used their final grades to compare academic achievement with their dominant learning style.The team found that there was no correlation between the dominant learning style suggested by the assessment and grades achieved.Not only did the researchers find no link, they saw that two thirds (67 per cent) of the students chose not to study in the recommended way.It was found that microscope work and lecture notes were the most effective methods for the students.It also found flash cards weren't as beneficial.In the paper, the researchers conclude that the idea that 'I can't learn subject X because I am a visual learner' should be put to rest once and for all.'This research provides further evidence that the conventional wisdom about learning styles should be rejected by educators and students alike,' they wrote.

Preferred learning styles among medical students
Video abstract of original research type paper “Learning styles among first professional northern and central India medical students during digitization” published in the open access journal Advances in Medical Education and Practice by authors Parashar R, Hulke S, Pakhare A. Background: Learning style is an individual’s natural or habitual pattern of acquiring and processing information in learning situations. Different sensory modalities are used by different types of medical students for assimilating the knowledge and information. Currently, the usage of electronic tools for teaching is widespread that can influence learning styles. Methods: The purpose of this study was to know the pattern of learners among first- and second-year medical students from different institutions in India. For this purpose, we have used latest English Version 7.0 of the Visual-Aural-Read/write-Kinesthetic. Results: Analysis was carried out using the IBM SPSS Version 21 software. Numerical variables were summarized by mean and SD or median and IQR as appropriate. Differences in scores among Visual-Aural-Read/write-Kinesthetic-learning styles were tested by Friedman’s test with post hoc pair wise comparison. Pattern of learning styles was different, and it was statistically significant (P<0.001). In this study, aural (median score 6) and kinesthetic (median score 6) styles were preferred. Pair-wise comparisons revealed that each style was different from each other except kinesthetic and aural. Conclusion: Results of the study suggest that to improve learning, one should try to use multimodal styles with special emphasis given to auditory and kinesthetic modes especially among first professionals in medical education during digitization.

How to Study Effectively for School or College - Top 6 Science-Based Study Skills
How to study effectively with 6 essential skills. Boost your study performance with strategies recommended by science - The ANSWER Method. These tips are for high school or university students preparing for exams or wanting to learn more effectively. For free downloadable posters about these six strategies for effective learning, click this link - https://www.dropbox.com/s/sofzb2m3sqzwvlv/6%20Strategies%20for%20Effective%20Learning.pdf?dl=1 This video is a collaboration between The Learning Scientists (http://www.learningscientists.org/) and Memorize Academy (https://www.memorize.academy). EXAMPLES of specific Elaboration questions from MATH You're studying calculus. The topic is “derivatives”. How do derivatives work? Well, they are the rate of the change. How does that work? You take a look at one point, then you take a look at a prior point, over some interval. And then you take the difference divided by the interval. As that interval approaches zero, you have the instantaneous rate of change. Why does this happen? Because “instantaneous” means that the interval is nothing. SCIENCE Imagine you are studying neural communication, maybe in a biology, neuroscience, or psychology class. How does neural communication work? If we look at one neuron, the dendrites receive messages from many other neurons, and then the messages converge in the soma. If there is enough of a positive charge within the soma, then an action potential will occur, and an electrical signal goes down the axon. When the signal reaches the terminal buttons, neurotransmitters release into the synapse where they communicate with the dendrites of the next neuron. Why does this happen? The neurotransmitters are chemicals that allow neurons to communicate with one another. The pattern of activation among different neurons (which neurons fire, how quickly, what neurotransmitters they release) determines the message in your brain. You might then ask, how does the axon work? The axon is a long tail-like structure that produces the electrical signal. How does the signal travel? The axon is covered in myelin sheath, a fatty substance that insulates the axon. The myelin sheath works like the rubber around the cord of an electrical appliance, and it serves to make the electricity travel faster. Why have myelin sheath? Because we need our neurons to be able to send signals fast, since we need to be able to react, make decisions, move quickly, perceive feeling in our skin instantly, etc. Make sure to compare ideas to learn how they are similar and different. For example, an axon and terminal buttons are both parts of a neuron; but, the axon sends an electrical signal while the terminal buttons release chemicals. Both Schizophrenia and Parkinson’s disease are related to the neurotransmitter dopamine, but Schizophrenia is the result of too much dopamine while Parkinson’s disease is the result of too little dopamine. Also, try to make connections to your own memories or experiences, and compare ideas to learn how they are similar and different. We already made the connection from myelin sheath on axons to the rubber on cords to electrical appliances. Here is another example: a family member or close friend who suffers from Schizophrenia disease is suffering from too much dopamine. This means that too much dopamine is being released, by the terminal buttons, into the synapse. A doctor could give them a drug to reduce the dopamine in their brain, called a dopamine antagonist. If too much of this drug is used, the patient might begin developing symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease. How would a dopamine antagonist work? … continue asking yourself elaborative questions! HISTORY Imagine you’re studying World War II, and the attack on Pearl Harbor. You could ask yourself, how did this attack happen? On December 7, 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy attacked the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor. The attack included Japanese fighter planes, bombers, and torpedo planes. Why did this happen? The Japanese intended to destroy the United States’ Pacific Fleet so that it could not interfere with Japanese operations. Here you could also ask another type of question: What was the result of this historic event? Well, Japanese casualties were light, while they damaged eight U.S. Navy battleships. The Arizona was among those that the Japanese sunk, and was not raised from the shallow water. U.S. aircrafts were also destroyed, and 2,403 Americans were killed (1,178 were injured). Why is this event important? The day after the attack, Roosevelt delivered his Infamy Speech, the United States declared war on Japan, and Japanese-Americans were then relocated to internment camps. You could then go on: how did the U.S. enter the war? How did the Pearl Harbor attack lead up to the release of the atomic bomb? How did the war end? And so on. There are so many ways to explain the idea and add details!

What is the difference between Learning Styles and Learning Strategies for Adaptive Learning?
In this video, Dr. Nish Sonwalkar explains the difference between learning styles and learning strategy, and present argument that for success of adaptive learning we need learning strategies not learning styles. The adaptive learning systems need learning strategies where the content is presented with a cognitive learning process. The research suggests learning styles do not have strong correlation for higher success of online learning, buy the learning strategies do show strong correlation to the success of Adaptive Learning Systems.

BrainFacts.org Webinar: Learning Styles Hurt Learning
One current brain myth posits that if students are struggling to learn, it might be because they are not being taught in a mode that meshes with their preferred learning style. As such, educators and professional development leaders devote time and resources assessing students’ learning styles and developing instruction to match. But research shows that educators may actually be doing a disservice to learners by continually accommodating their learning-style preferences. In this webinar, find out more about the science behind learning styles and discover the many free resources available for educators on BrainFacts.org.

Learning Styles Affecting Teaching Methods
Learning styles affecting teaching methods is about the teacher's learning style and teaching method being supported by each other. Research has shown that the way a teahcer presents a lesson to the students, most of the reason is because of the teachers learning style. A teacher will teach the way they learned it best. Most teachers think that it doesn't matter at first, but when they think about it, they change their answer.

How to Study in Medical School
A review of successful study strategies in med school, including retrieval practice (testing effect), spaced repetition, and varied practice. I also discuss common learning myths, including learning styles. And I end with a discussion of popular study resources for med students, including Pathoma, First Aid, Picmonic, SketchyMedical, Anki, Firecracker, Osmosis, Najeeb, and more... In direct response to some comments, I would like to emphasize that I'm not asserting "Sketchy" doesn't work - I'm just saying that the study technique it uses is unproven and is novel enough to not yet have established a conventional wisdom about it among learning scientists. Also, regarding First Aid, I appreciate that Step 1 is perceived to test the long lists of unconnected esoteric facts that First Aid is great for, however, I also see students use First Aid as a primary resource for their courses, which I think has major drawbacks.

Learning Styles (English) | Mathematics Pedagogy #3 | CTET, TET & DSC 2018
After this video lesson, you will be able to understand • the different learning styles of children • examples of how learning styles can be used to teach math objectives Keywords Visual: relating to seeing Auditory: relating to hearing Kinesthetic: relating to touching Dominant: noticeable than anything else of the same type What are Learning Styles? • An individual's learning style refers to the preferred way in which the student absorbs, processes, comprehends and retains information. • It is based on an individual's strengths, weaknesses, and preferences. • For Example, when learning how to build a clock, some students understand the process by following verbal instructions, while others have to physically manipulate the clock themselves. • It is important for educators to understand the differences in their students' learning styles, so that they can implement best practice strategies into their daily activities, curriculum and assessments. Different learning styles • Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic Learning Styles (VAK) • The VAK learning style uses the three main sensory receivers: Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic (movement) to determine the "dominant" learning style. • Everyone has a mix of learning styles and one or more styles maybe dominant from the rest. Dominant Visual Learner • They learn through seeing. • They need to see the teacher's body language and facial expression to fully understand the content of a lesson. • They tend to prefer sitting at the front of the classroom to avoid visual obstructions (e.g. people's heads). * They may think in pictures and learn best from visual displays including diagrams, illustrated textbooks, videos, and hand-outs. • They often prefer to take detailed notes to absorb the information. • They like to have a quite place to study and use of colorful highlighters to mark notes and text. Dominant Auditory Learner • They learn through listening. • They learn best through verbal lectures, discussions, talking things through and listening to what others have to say. • They interpret the underlying meanings of speech through listening to the tone of voice, pitch, speed and other nuances. • They often benefit from reading text aloud and using a tape recorder. • They like to read aloud or create musical jingles to help them learn new material. Dominant Kinesthetic Learner • They are also called Tactile Learners. • They learn through, moving, doing and touching. • They learn best through a hands-on approach, actively exploring the physical world around them. • They may find it hard to sit still for long periods and may become distracted by their need for activity and exploration. • They like to chew gum or to snack while they study and need to take frequent study breaks. Previous Year Questions 1. Maul is a kinesthetic learner. His teacher Ms. Nebo understood his style of learning. Which of the following strategies should she choose to clear his concept of multiplication? a. Skip counting b. Counting the points of intersection on criss-cross lines c.
