It’s true that people are different and that these exact differences affect the way they learn. Some have special needs. Some have special abilities. And no one can argue that intelligence comes in various levels and forms. The idea of learning styles is based on the theory of multiple of intelligences, developed in the early 1980s by psychologist Howard Gardner of Harvard University. Gardner claimed to have identified 7 distinct types of intelligences (visuo-spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, linguistic and logical-mathematical) I was told that any given class contains pupils with a range of abilities, and that different children have different learning styles. See my learning style helps me learn gains the information through observation from their environment. People have different interests and when someone is interested in a subject, chances are that he will learn about it faster and more in depth. Learners have diverse backgrounds, something that undoubtedly affects their learning. And, last but not least, there are people with various learning disabilities, something that ultimately affects the way they learn and that requires a special approach on behalf of the instructor. These sorts of learners may find it difficult to follow the verbal instructions, but they can give good response to visual instruction such as maps, diagrams or pictures. People become comfortable in their learning styles.
Do you think people’s learning style changes as the mature? I really don’t think that. But I believe that it could happen.
Do you think a person’s learning style is influenced by their parent/guardian that child was around the most while growing up? Yes I do until they get older an start figuring things out on their own an picturing things different.
