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.
