How to Construct Personal Learning Environmentsby Using Learning Styles?
Topic DiscussionsThe relationship between Personallearning environments and learning styles learning As an element of environments PLEs Learning Developing styles review application
Personal learning environments Discussion of Topics “tools, communities, and services that constitute the individual educational platforms that learners use to direct their own learning and pursue educational goals” (ELI, 2009)The U of Two key concepts(Johnson & Liber, 2008)Bolton’s PLEs - the desire to create learner centeredReference Model - the facilitation of learning by using personal technology.Project in 2006 PLEs can be considered a set of tools that fit within the area of personal tools that are used in learning activities (Tom Haskins, 2007) Ideas about PLEs are still forming
Learning Styles Discussion of Topics “Description of the attitudes and behavior which determine an individual’s preferred way of learning” (Honey & Mumford,1992) Students who understand their learning styles Author Measure Types of learnersNolting can improve their learning effectiveness in Learning Converger, Diverger,(2002) Kolb Style Assimilator, and outside of the classroom Inventory Accommodator When students are working in their preferred Van Honey Learning learning mode, they probably find that they Activist, ReflectorBlerkom and Styles are better able to concentrate on their study Theorist, Pragmatist Mumford Questionnaire(2006) tasks. Concrete Sequential Incorporating learning styles in the instruction Gregorc Graf Abstract Random Gregorc Mind Styles can make learning easier for those students Abstract Sequential(2007) Delineator and increases their learning efficiency Concrete Random Visual learnersGuild & Understanding learning styles can help Auditory learnersGarger educators facilitate, structure, and validate Fleming VAK/VARK Kinaesthetic learners(1998) successful learning for all students Tactile learners
Learning Styles Discussion of Topics Little evidence for the efficacy of most learning style models (Coffield et al, 2004) - limitations in many of the supporting studies - a lack of independent researchExisting Low reliability and validity (Cockerton et al,Problems On 2002; Duff & Duffy, 2002; Swailes & Senior,Learning 1999; Fung et al, 1993; Kappe et al, 2008).Styles Difficulty applying to different cultural conditions and experiences, mismatched reality and not being suitable for the assessment of individuals.
The Relation between LE and LS Discussion of TopicsEducators and learner could enhance learning by creatingsuitable learning environments matched to learning stylescorrespondingly(Bacon, 2004; Coffield et al., 2004; …)The learning environment which is chosen by learners mayinfluence the success of learning((Federico, 2000; Ford &Chen, 2000; Graf & Kinshuk, 2007; …)
My attempt: developing review app Discussion of Topics Review app as an element of learning environments Good review contributes to enhanced memory and achievement of academic goals (Coyne et al, 2010) Several issues (Abowd et al, 1996; Grave, 2004; …) - very few researches addressing review activity - most of the existing studies have dealt with only review materials(content and method) Students have little or no time at all after class to thoroughly review (Farrell & Chandler, 2008) Students have some problems regulating their behavior in study (Do & Yang, 2012)
Significance of My Topic in ITLearning environments are considered as one of the mainresearch areas to IT professionals. With state-of-the-arttechnology, we can get many more opportunities to investigatethe most suitable learning environment for students.
