Learning styles a tool we can not forget

For next class I plan to take the chart of learning styles from http://www.chaminade.org/INSPIRE/learnstl.htm for my students to read and circle the way the learn best. From that I will make my lesson plans according to their learning style. As Stephen says "Digital technologies, with their propensity for facilitating multimedia-oriented and interactive activities, are tools that can be leveraged by teachers to create learning experience that are rich in perspective and form". So on line I will get different activities that will help my students learn the way they need. I also plan to take into account what Johwyson say that we can help students with their weak learning style, too. There are very good ideas on "Learning and Teaching Education", since it is not easy to apply different learning activities for language education that at the end have harmony.

Now I understand my students even better. I wanted them to learn the way I was teaching and not adapting my teaching to the way the learn best.

At the end of each class I will take into account Azhar's Sandwich Feedback Technique. I will praise, criticize and praise once more.

  1. Dear Roxana,

    I think it is a great idea giving students the chart of learning styles and ask them answer the questions… this way they not only know how they learn best but also they know other ways to learn. I think here you have an important statement! You said:

    "Now I understand my students even better. I wanted them to learn the way I was teaching and not adapting my teaching to the way the learn best"

    Other teachers think that they should adapt their teaching practices to their students' learning styles… but here you have this statement… happy you see things in a different way.

    Good luck,
    Khuloud.
