VAK in an Instant

Learning styles, learning preferences,

Learning styles, learning preferences; which term is important?  Social media sites are being flooded with discussions on whether or not learning styles should be taught.  But does the label ‘Learning Styles” really matter?  Does it make a difference if we apply learning styles or learning strengths or learning preference?  I think not.  What really matters is that students gain awareness of how they learn best.  And, that students become more confident in their ability to learn.

One of the more successful strategies I have tried is a simple exercise encouraging students to think about their preferred method of receiving information.  I call it the “VAK” attack.
