Archive: Meeting Six – Learning Styles
If you don't have time to assess a paper's methodology, is there educational equivalent to a cochrane review or NHS choices? #SciTeachJC
@ I know but they are probably still dining out on their 'research' years later as evidence that it works #SciTeachJC
@ part of the problem (she said) was that the DfE(s) always jumped the gun, (i.e. when things were in pilot) #sciteachjc
RT @: I have seen teachers who have only one lesson delivery/teaching style so the notion of learning styles helped move thin ...

#SciTeachJC I always use a variety of teaching styles to exercise different cognitive processes - no good focusing on one whatever the child
@ Not that I know of...good question. Surely we can find out? #SciTeachJC
#SciTeachJC Slightly getting off point but common denominator to all these 'good research bad implentation' strategies is politics!
@ #sciteachJC And that's the way it should be. Vary teaching style. But kids not fixed (or even linked) to a learning style.
#SciTeachJC@ I agree. With a classroom of different learners you have to teach to all of them
@ #sciteachjc That sounds good! Can you say a little more? 'Cochrane review' for instance?
@ probably how VAK shd be used. Variety of lrning activities, different styles, to maintain engagement if nothing else #sciteachjc
Do I detect a large dose of scepticism from @ about the value of educational research? #SciTeachJC

I had problems convincing staff that the Mozart Effect was bunk, imagine if I talked about VAK? #SciTeachJC
@ #sciteachJC Ah yes, politics. And sadly, we haven't got a chance of that being evidence based.
@ You appear to be able to deal with letters quite well currently 😉 #sciteachjc
@ @ It was never intended to be used like that... it's over used in school #sciteachjc
#SciTeachJC People like nice little labels - and a damned good excuse for dear little Johnny not achieving 300 A*s
@ #SciTeachJC great point. A learner may be engaged by an activity different from their ideal learning style.
@ if indeed they have an ideal learning style to begin with 😉 #sciteachjc
offtopic: anyone else think idea of 'types' of ppl similar to expressed in SF - thinking Monica Hughes (old), Divergent (recent) #SciTeachJC
@ #SciTeachJC ...that is to your comment about not fixing pupils to a particular style
RT @: I had problems convincing staff that the Mozart Effect was bunk, imagine if I talked about VAK? #SciTeachJC
@ @ #sciteachjc it's now fallen by the wayside & we only do it if there is a specific task that is linked to it
@ Doesn't "Vorderman" report suggest giving power over the Maths curriculum to people who know what they are talking about? #sciteachjc
@ @ Is part of problem with getting ideas like this tested properly in sch, that it is pot. unethical? #sciteachjc
@ @ so you're now doing it as it was intended to be done (occasionally as appropriate) #sciteachjc #app
#SciTeachJC Had staff meet 2day sharing ideas abt differentiatn.Was when some1 justified task as good 4 kin learners that I switched off!
RT @: #SciTeachJC People like nice little labels - and a damned good excuse for dear little Johnny not achieving 300 A*s
@ @ #sciteachjc You would teach them anyway, so not unethical - don't know what works. But difficult to do control
@ Double blind testing on kids during their formative years in education. #sciteachjc
@ thanks, have you seen Phil Plait's 'Don't be a Dick?' #SciTeachJC
RT @: #SciTeachJC Had staff meet 2day sharing ideas abt differentiatn.Was when some1 justified task as good 4 kin learners ...
@ #sciteachjc it's fundamental. You _can't_ perform studies you think will make students worse off. They're not electrons.
@ #SciTeachJC the thing is, like medical treatments, the diff methods *are* being used - just not in research.
#SciTeachJC Parents do not react well if dear little Johnny is being 'experimented on'
@ tell them that 'we're trying something new that has shown interesting results in boosting learning', they grab it! #SciTeachJC
@ @ btw not expert on APP. Op. based entirely on an hour's discussion on a bus with #app developer 🙂 #sciteachjc

#SciTeachJC Focusing on ONE and ONE ONLY LS is like not teaching handwriting only keyboard - kiddies end up with limited fine-motor skills
@ @ #sciteachjc hopefully! although we were initially told that all work had to be marked according to the levels
