    • Different Theories of Learning Styles
      • Myers-Briggs ( http://www2.gsu.edu/~dschjb/wwwmbti.html )
        • Not really a learning styles theory, but a personality test
        • Used heavily in business
        • Not corroborated in studies that measure achievement
    • Different Theories of Learning Styles
      • Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences
        • verbal-linguistic
        • musical-rhythmic
        • logical-mathematical
        • visual-spatial
        • bodily-kinesthetic
        • intrapersonal
        • interpersonal
    • Different Theories of Learning Styles
      • Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences
        • Intelligence redefined as:
          • a biopsychological potential to process information that can be activated in a cultural setting to solve problems or create products that are of value in a culture
        • Gardner himself has always held that his is a theory about intelligence, not a prescriptive theory for instruction or learning
    • Different Theories of Learning Styles
      • Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences
        • Intelligence redefined as:
          • a biopsychological potential to process information that can be activated in a cultural setting to solve problems or create products that are of value in a culture
        • Gardner himself has always held that his is a theory about intelligence, not a prescriptive theory for instruction or learning. Also, he states it is not a good idea to try to teach all things to all intelligences.
    • Different Theories of Learning Styles
      • Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences
        • Zero research supporting claims of MI increasing student achievement

    • Different Theories of Learning Styles
      • Brain based Learning
        • Caine and Caine suggested that the structure of the brain is predictive of how people learn
          • http://www.brainconnection.com/topics/?main=fa/brain-based2
        • Again, based loosely on neuroscience, but neuroscience community does not support extrapolation of its research in this manner
    • Different Theories of Learning Styles
      • Locus of Control
        • External or Internal
          • http://wilderdom.com/psychology/loc/LocusOfControlWhatIs.html
        • Similar issues
          • How is it measured?
          • Is it stable?
          • Does it predict?
          • If we change instruction does it help?
    • Conclusion
      • While learning styles have been touted as very important, there is little evidence that they are
      • More practice than research based
      • Little or no evidence in favor of wholesale changes in how we instruct
      • So what do we do with this?
