Learning Styles: An Anthropological Perspective.
Rockler, Michael J.
Studies of the brain and of the human culture can be used to demonstrate the limits of traditional approaches (based on psychological perspectives which are often narrow and restrictive) to learning styles and to offer additional perspectives on the complexity of learning. The study of the hemispheres of the brain and its triune nature indicates the limits of traditional approaches to learning style while broadening the scope of understanding of learning. Edward T. Hall, an anthropologist, has devised constructs about time, synchrony and communication which also facilitate comprehension about the nature of the problem. Many kinds of teaching procedures (taken from simulation/gaming and the process of facilitating creative behavior) can be identified to demonstrate ways to suppoort the complex nature of learning and to provide ways for balancing the many dualisms in human nature.
