As an educator it is always important to recognize and incorporate the different learning styles into a lesson.
The three main learning styles are:
*Auditory (person learns through hearing, sounds)
*Tactile (person learns through note taking, repetition)
When an educator prepares a lesson, they take into account these three styles and should form different exercises that incorporate one or more of these styles. For example
Tactile: The educator prepares a lecture with a powerpoint presentation with space for the learner to take notes.
This solution provides an overview of the different learning styles and how to incorporate them into a lesson plan.
Cultural factors and learning styles are important in education. These become especially important in Distance education where typically the instructors, fellow students and the learner are separated. This paper examines the issues and suggests some approaches to ease difficulties.
This paper looks at the problem of cultural factors and learning styles and its implications in Distance education. As more students are leaving traditional class rooms for distance education courses over the web, class rooms are distributed and students can join in from anywhere in the globe. This paper examines the relevance of cultural factors in a globalized world. It looks at the links between cultural factors and learning styles.
Further, the implications to learning at a distance are explored. As more students take online courses or do part of their curriculum in the distance mode, these issues are becoming more relevant to the educator.
The paper ends with some recommendations for accommodating varying learning styles and easing cultural barriers to facilitate learning.
