Student Learning Styles Adaptation Method Based on Teaching Strategies and Electronic Media
Franzoni, Ana Lidia; Assar, Said
Educational Technology & Society, v12 n4 p15-29 2009
Recent research on the learning process has shown that students tend to learn in different ways and that they prefer to use different teaching resources as well. Many researchers agree on the fact that learning materials shouldn't just reflect of the teacher's style, but should be designed for all kinds of students and all kind of learning styles. Even though they agree on the importance of applying these learning styles to different learning systems, various problems still need to be solved, such as matching teaching contents with the student's learning style. In this paper, we describe the design of a personalized teaching method that is based on an adaptive taxonomy using Felder and Silverman's learning styles and which is combined with the selection of the appropriate teaching strategy and the appropriate electronic media. Students are able to learn and to efficiently improve their learning process with such method. (Contains 12 tables and 2 figures.)
