Learning Styles

There are generally considered to be three types of learners: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Should schools tailor curriculum to suit the style of the learner?

It is impossible to put learners in this boxes effectively, each learner overlaps to a certain extent to to give them only one form of learning would do more harm than good. I was under the impression this was tried & tested alot in the 1980’s but most companies I was aware of have since folded.

ABOUT THE GUEST

Sir Ken Robinson is a “creativity expert.” He has dedicated his life’s work to examining how children are educated. He champions a radical restructuring of school systems by acknowledging that there are multiple kinds of intelligence and they each require a different educational method.

Robinson led the British government’s 1998 advisory committee on creative and cultural education—a massive inquiry into the significance of creativity in the educational system and the economy—and was knighted in 2003 for his achievements.

In his latest book, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, Robinson offers a deep look at human creativity and education.
