Assessed Activity 1.2 (2016) Learning Styles

The acronym VAKOG stands for Visual, Auditory, Kinaesthetic, Olfactory and Gustatory, which refers to the human sensory system.

The acronym NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The concept of NLP revolves around the fact that everyone interprets the world in which they live through the VAKOG system of senses. According to NLP, each individual has their own preferred system of processing and interpreting information – which has lead to the development of different “learning styles”.

The learning style debate basically revolves around the validkity of learning styles as a concept. While those who support learning styles would argue that adapting teaching methods to suit the way in which a student learns best, some would say that there is little evidence to back this up.

Ubiquitous learning refers to learning which takes place anywhere and anytime. As most people these days have access to portable, online devices such as smart phones and tablets, this means that individuals are able to learn information which is of interest to them, in their own way. Advancements in technology mean that the way in learning occurs is evolving, and classrooms are beginning to operate in a way that is vastly different to how they would have operated say 5 or 10 years ago.
