Accomodating diverse learning stylles ppt
(which might also be interpreted as a 'training cycle').In this respect Kolb's model is particularly elegant, since it offers both a way to understand individual people's different learning styles, and also an explanation of a cycle of experiential learning that applies to us all.See further notes about Learning Styles detractors and considerations below.Kolb's learning theory sets out four distinct learning styles (or preferences), which are based on a four-stage learning cycle.Kolb includes this 'cycle of learning' as a central principle his experiential learning theory, typically expressed as four-stage cycle of learning, in which 'immediate or concrete experiences' provide a basis for 'observations and reflections'.These 'observations and reflections' are assimilated and distilled into 'abstract concepts' producing new implications for action which can be 'actively tested' in turn creating new experiences.It is wrong to apply any methodology blindly and unquestioningly, and wrong not to review and assess effectiveness of methods used.
In turn, Kolb's learning styles model and experiential learning theory are today acknowledged by academics, teachers, managers and trainers as truly seminal works; fundamental concepts towards our understanding and explaining human learning behaviour, and towards helping others to learn.
Having developed the model over many years prior, David Kolb published his learning styles model in 1984.
The model gave rise to related terms such as Kolb's experiential learning theory (ELT), and Kolb's learning styles inventory (LSI).
Here are brief descriptions of the four Kolb learning styles: As with any behavioural model, this is a guide not a strict set of rules.
Nevertheless most people clearly exhibit clear strong preferences for a given learning style.
