Accomodating multiple learning
Information processing theories encompass individuals' preferred intellectual approach to assimilating information, and includes David Kolb's model of information processing, which identifies two separate learning activities: perception and processing.Social learning theories determine how students interact in the classroom and include Reichmann's and Grasha's types of learners: independent, dependent, collaborative, competitive, participant, and avoidant.The model suggests multiple-stage teaching elements to accommodate each learning style, on the theory that each style augments the others. For visual learners, teachers color-highlight the text to organize ideas.For aural learners, teachers also read the text aloud, and encourage verbal analogies -- "this situation on paper is like this real-life situation." For kinesthetic learners, teachers require text annotation and question-and-answer sessions.
