I am aware from PIDP 3250 – Instructional Strategies that learning styles are a myth. This TED Talk helped me understand this myth a bit better and made me question my teaching in regards to learning styles. I mainly teach my students how to use Microsoft Office to solve business problems. This process involves visual and kinesthetic learning. A common complaint I receive when teaching this course is that I lecture too much and don’t give enough hands-on time. The problem here is that learning software is not really a kinethistic process. Learning to type is kinethistic, but problem solving is largely visual. When students observe the problem solving process they see the step-by-step logic and reasoning in regards to solving the specific problem. In a computer software course students are very keen to jump into things and start clicking buttons, but much thought needs to be considered in this type of work as well.
