"258/365: Pheasant?" (CC BY-SA 2.0) by davidmulder61   Here is another example of why propagators of “learning styles” do schooling and education a disservice. An NBC correspondent highlighted a quote from a WaPo article: President Trump doesn’t read his daily intelligence briefings, gets oral briefings on “select” issues instead, because reading isn’t “his style of learning,” the @washingtonpost […]

Since some people would rather watch a video bite than read articles, I share SciShow’s Hank Green’s 2.5 minute critique of “learning styles”. Video source From a review of research, Green highlighted how: the only study that seemed to support learning styles was severely flawed students with perceptions that they had one style over others […]
