Dalaman, Osman; Can, Süleyman; Durukan, Erdil – Educational Research and Reviews, 2019
Learning process varies from student to student. In a related research, it is argued that one of the basic elements for this variation is due to student's distinct learning styles. Planning learning situations based on the knowledge of learners' learning styles can be more effective and efficient. With the learning-teaching process designed in…

Yilmaz-Soylu, Meryem; Akkoyunlu, Buket – Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, 2009
Every learning environment may attempt to raise successful students, but will not achieve the desired results if several essential elements are not considered in the instructional design process. These elements can be classified interior and exterior conditions. Learner characteristics, items of the interior conditions such as learning style, age,…

Byrnes, Scott William – ProQuest LLC, 2010
The assimilation and synthesis of knowledge is essential for students to be successful in chemistry, yet not all students synthesize knowledge as intended. The study used the Learning Preference Checklist to classify students into one of three learning modalities--visual, auditory, or kinesthetic (VAK). It also used the Kolb Learning Style…

Robison, Elizabeth Sharon – ProQuest LLC, 2012
Nursing education is experiencing a transition in how students are exposed to clinical situations. Technology, specifically human patient computer simulation, is replacing human exposure in clinical education (Nehring, 2010b). Kaakinen and Arwood (2009) discuss the need to apply learning theories to instructional designs involving simulation for…

Gooden, Doreen J.; Preziosi, Robert C.; Barnes, F. Barry – American Journal of Business Education, 2009
As educators our primary focus is that of ensuring that students experience positive learning outcomes. Research, however, has shown that there are differences in students' learning styles and that these differences will impact on the overall learning process. One way of ensuring that these positive outcomes are achieved is by identifying the…

Kolb, Alice Y.; Kolb, David A. – Simulation & Gaming, 2009
Contemporary research on meta-cognition has reintroduced conscious experience into psychological research on learning and stimulated a fresh look at classical experiential learning scholars who gave experience a central role in the learning process--William James, John Dewey, Kurt Lewin, Carl Rogers, and Paulo Freire. In particular James's…

Franzoni, Ana Lidia; Assar, Said – Educational Technology & Society, 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.…
