Cognitive Learning Styles and Digital Equity: Searching for the Middle Way
Hardaker, Glenn; Dockery, Richard; Sabki, A'ishah Ahmad
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v14 n8 p777-794 Dec 2010
This research is driven by a desire to understand the lifelong learner in the context of styles of learning and the emerging implications of technology enhanced learning for digital equity. Recognising cognitive learning styles is the first step educators need to take in order to be most effective in working with students of diversity and bridging across formal and informal settings. Learning environments as a characterising feature of learning styles have undergone unprecedented change over the past decade with learning environments now blending physical and virtual space. To support the increasing diversity of learners pedagogy has to be fair, culturally responsive, equitable and relevant to the "virtual generation". This, in turn, will inform our understanding of the "middle way" in recognising cognitive learning styles, associated cultural context, and the implications to digital pedagogy equity.
