  1. LS in classroom:

    Kinesthetic Learner – by demonstrating how a principle works, ask a student to practice the techniques, underline and highlight key words when taking notes, provide real life simulation situation & after ends on activities, involve students physical.

    Visual Learner – provide materials and exercises that require writing notes, write key words on white board or charts and ask them to write a respond & use visual for graphics.

    Auditory Learner – say the information and ask the student to describe the specific information, provide discussion period for student & encourage questions.

  2. Nicely produced video, nice ideas and nice music.  However you are ill informed.  Learning styles are preferences for students, not their needs.  Any teacher should use a variety of styles to vary their lessons, but the idea of learning styles, has consistently been dismissed by pretty much all the peer reviewed research papers over the last 30 years.  You finish, with write it, say it, do it.  I suggest you all read on the internet with a search like, "learning styles, evidence based teaching" and you will find out what the evidence says about catering to learning styles.  Don't be fooled by this video production along with the music track that goes with it.

  3. There is no objective evidence for the effectiveness of the learning styles approach. Leading educationalists have even called it harmful. I suggest you look at some of the large scale studies of effective learning strategies.This stuff is just snake-oil.

  4. Here's great information for you. Students who eat a complete breakfast and more berries tend to get higher grades in school than those who don’t. Chew on that….

  6. Our psychology lecturer sent us here as an example of the sort of stuff that was being touted as "learning styles". The sad thing is, there's very little evidence to support it – read a paper called "Learning Styles: Concepts and Evidence" by Pashler, McDaniel, Rohrer & Bjork (2008) to see why…

  7. Good indeed… It's always a good litmus test of a lesson plan if you can reflect and see that all 3 learning strategies are catered to throughout the lesson. By catering to all 3 learning styles you are insuring that each student is given the greatest opportunity to learn.

  8. Good job !

  9. I Really Like The Video Teaching strategies on effectively reaching kinesthetic, visual, and auditory learning styles From Your

  10. Great video. I learnt from it. I love the subject of training too much!!! Recently I also attended a free online training about training trainingforthetrainer. com and got my certificate as an Associate Trainer.

  11. Learning styles is pseudoscience: That is, information designed to sound scientific and truthful, but is, in fact ,neither of these. The research on learning styles is clear: Teacher's use of learning style info during instruction does not help, and sometimes hurts student learning.
    Shouldn't someone who takes the time to make a video about a topic (for which there is readily available information) learn that information?

  12. "i"m a (blank), I need to (blank). I think it is misguided to cater to the pupil, as the business environment will not be doing so for the employee. Rather all students must work as hard as necessary to learn from text and images, like graphs. Anyone who excells does so via a lot of self-education with texts. If a pupil can benefit by an input that is an analogy of the text, it is his/her responsibility to learn to make the translation. We can all learn to translate.
