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.
This is a unique real vampire website for vampires as well as the curious. It has valuable information for any real vampire and is based on scientific evidence. It also leads to other good websites for real vampires.
This is why I "think" Im a real vampire They have no desire to use us as lab rats or slaves. Before reading any farther on this site, This website is not made for poser vamps, close-minded people, or those who think that they are, or claim to be a vampire because they think the spirit of a vampire entered them at some time making them a vampire. We call these people posers, which they are; they are confused lost children. This site is not here for them in any way! It is for real vampires, curious people, and open-minded skeptics. The best compliment that you can give to this site, is telling all of your friends about it.
Real vampires are not pure fiction.
The Headache Paradox: It is scientifically impossible to have a headache, seeing that there are no pain receptors in the brain. Yet we continue to search for answers to what causes a headache, because we all know that headaches do exist.
Between a combination of the fact that our brains are roughly nothing more than a highly advanced mass of nerves, and that every function is controlled by signals that our brain sends through our nerves to the rest of our bodies, I think that if we could somehow make our nerves send stronger, more efficient signals at a quicker speed it would have a lot of different results. Including heightened sense (both physical and psychic) moving quicker both running and walking along with arm movement etc. The brain being just nerves would obviously also be effected, resulting in quicker more efficient thinking, which naturally would make us smarter, more observant, and have much sharper reflexes.
Some say that is an overly simplified form of how the brain functions, which it is. To them I say make the axons 12-15% wider, resulting in signals being sent much more quickly through the brain. Allowing neurons to create more connections without loss of speed, and the 10,000+ miles of blood vessels in the brain doubling as an additional cooling system for the brain. I could write a book on the cascade of effects that alone causes for people when they are changed in to a real vampire, however for now I will leave it in this simplified form.
