COMMENT:

In this link we can read:

“Learning styles have more influence on learning than we realize because they represent the internal experiences we have or the way we remember information. Researchers have been interested in this phenomenon, and it is estimated that each learning style uses different parts of the brain.”

Is it true that the theory and practice around learning styles have scientific evidence that lead to improved learning?

COMMENT:

Although there is a lot of scientific literature devoted to this topic, there are no studies that validate it. Therefore it could be a hoax.

“Although the literature on learning styles is enormous, very few studies have even used an experimental methodology capable of testing the validity of learning styles applied to education. Moreover, of those that did use an appropriate method, several found results that flatly contradict the popular meshing hypothesis. We conclude therefore, that at present, there is no adequate evidence base to justify incorporating learning-styles assessments into general educational practice.”

COMMENT:

“The existence of ‘Learning Styles’ is a common ‘neuromyth’, and their use in all forms of education has been thoroughly and repeatedly discredited in the research literature”

COMMENT:

“Results demonstrated no statistically significant relationship between learning style preference (auditory, visual word) and instructional method (audiobook, e-text) for either immediate or delayed comprehension tests. Taken together, the results of our investigation failed to statistically support the meshing hypothesis either for verbal comprehension aptitude or learning based on mode of instruction (digital audiobook, e-text)”

COMMENT:

Learning styles theory fails to explain learning and achievement: Recommendations for alternative approaches.

“First, this article briefly reviews critical problems with learning styles. Three major concepts are discussed: lack of a clear, explanatory framework, problems of measurement, and a failure to link learning styles to achievement. ”

Según lo que he podido leer en artículos he entendido que sí que es posible que hayan diferentes tipos de expresar los conocimientos del profesor o mentor al alumno.
Los expertos han podido analizar que el conocimiento en los alumnos que han aprendido de la manera que más preferencia tienen son más capaces de comprender lo que el profesor les quiere trasmitir.
Hay que tener en cuenta hoy en dia a todos los alumnos que pueden haber en la clase y los tipos de complicaciones y cualidades que pueden poseer.
Si dedicamos tiempo y esfuerzo en practicar otros tipos de metodos de enseñanza, se puede mostrar más eficacia en el aprendizaje.
