Learning Styles and Learning Theories - Building on from the learning styles and theories I have covered, it is clear to see that although they target multiple learning groups; they fail to underpin any techniques, skills and strategies to become an effective learner. “Many students can perform and obtain good results, but that itself may be insufficient to make them effective learners. Often the distinction between performance and learning is blurred and many students have difficulty reflecting on how they can learn to become better learners” (Gavin Reed & Shannon Green 2009)....   [tags: education, discipline]

Learning From Two Women - I consider myself as a young woman on my late 20’s and always making fun of my “old” husband who is in his early 30’s. But trying to remember how I learned to read and write makes me feel older than him, because it is hard to focus on a single event that could have changed my perspective about reading and writing. The first time that I thought about how I learn to read, it came to my mind images of my grandmother and my mother reading me bedtime stories before I fell asleep. My passion about books and interesting magazines came from my grandmother stories and was reinforced by my mother’s encourage to read....   [tags: Personal Narrative Reading Learning] 974 words

Learning Disabilities and Political Correctness - There are some groups and organizations like “Abilities,” a Canadian lifestyle magazine for disabled people, have provided some guidelines on the correct terminology to be used for the individuals with disabilities. Most of this information makes sense and is easy for a writer to implement, but sometimes individuals or organizations can go overboard in their demands for political correctness. There are several guiding principles that writers can use to determine which terminology will be acceptable to most people who have or deal with people with disabilities (Fallotz, 2009)....   [tags: genetic fallacy, learning, snob approach]

Distance Learning - Distance Learning Many institutions of higher education are experimenting with changes having to do with class offerings. According to Keegan, “It is not easy to define distance education.” An early descriptive definition states that distance education learners are usually taught as individuals and not in groups (Rossman 8). Distance education can be thought of as instructional delivery that does not constrain the student to be physically present in the same location as the instructor. Distance learning is a newly emerging trend that many institutions are taking advantage of....   [tags: Essays Papers]

Whichever their learning style is, teachers’ core responsibility is to instruct their students in the subject matter in a way for them to understand. At the same time, teachers must make sure that students are genuinely learning the content. There are teachers who assume these types of instructions are sufficient enough to ensure that students are learning.

Link Between Learning and Cognition - Finding a valid meaning of knowledge is not a simple task as many people have more than once given differing insight as to what knowledge entails. The history of knowledge dates far back to Greek philosophy in which Plato and Aristotle manifested great interest in the nature of knowledge; the epistemology tried to identify what knowledge meant, to gain facts of its origin, and about its maximum capacity. As Plato posited that knowledge is inherited and therefore innate, Aristotle advanced in an individual’s sensory experience as the base of knowledge....   [tags: Learning ]

Maximum Learning Experience - Why do some teachers fail to provide a maximum learning experience for their students. I came up with three different concepts on how I can support my students to attain maximum learning experience in the classroom. One of the reasons why teachers cannot provide a maximum learning experience for their students is because teachers do not spend time exploring their students’ preferred learning style. Some teachers rely heavily on just one teaching style, closing the doors for students who cannot fully learn on one specific teaching style that teachers use....   [tags: teachers, learning experience, VAKT]

The Process of Learning - Learning Learning is more than a person sitting at a desk and studying off a book. Everything that we do is a result of what we have learned. We respond to things that happen to us, we act and experience consequences from our behavior, and we observe what others say and do. Psychologists explain our many experiences with basic learning processes. “Learning is a relatively permanent change in behavior that occurs through experience (Santrock, p.146).” By learning how to use a computer you will change from being someone who could not operate a computer to being one who can....   [tags: Psychology Psychological Learn Essays]
