  • What are learning styles?

  • How can we assess student leaning styles?

  • Why understanding of learning styles is important to teachers?

  • How can computers & multimedia help teachers address multiple learning styles?


What are learning styles l.jpg
What are learning Styles? styles.

  • Reid (1987)

    “Learning style is an individual’s natural, habitual, & preferredway of absorbing, processing and retaining new information and skills”

  • How students approach learning, not how well they learn.

  • “No single style is better or worse than any other. Everyone can learn; we just learn differently.” – by Dunn (1996)


What types of learning styles are there l.jpg
What types of Learning Styles are there? styles.

  • Cultural Leaning Styles

- Different cultures tend to have different learning styles preferences.

  • Individual Leaning Styles

- More than 20 styles have been identified; research indicates that individual learners can have 6-14 strongly preferred styles at the same time.

- Cognitive, affective, perceptual, & physiological dimensions


Slide10 l.jpg

  • Cultural Leaning Styles

  • International or immigrant students may be at risk because their preferences may often differ significantly from those of native students.

  • Teaching approaches & methods developed in one society may have unexpected effects when transplanted to foreign soil (collaborative vs. individual).

  • Teachers need to be aware of different cultural learning styles and show them respect. Also, they need to help them adjust to new classroom environment.


Slide11 l.jpg

( of ways.cognitive, affective, perceptual & physiological Dimensions)

  • Cognitive Dimension

  • Individual Leaning Styles

  • The overlap among, field independent, analytic,& reflective dimension is apparent.

  • The effectiveness of a learning style depends very much on the context.


Slide12 l.jpg

The aspects of personality (attention & emotions) that influence what a learner will pay attention to in a learning situation.

  • Conceptual Level

- the degree of structure that a person needs to learn effectively.

e.g.) A low conceptual level may need a high structured learning environment.

  • Locus of Control

- Introverted learners feel responsible for their own behavior and prefer to explore on their own.

- Extroverted learners feel that responsibility is collective (group work / role play).


Slide13 l.jpg

  • One or a combination of up to three possible perceptual channels- auditory, visual, & kinesthetic (tactile)- through which learners extract information from the environment.

  • Physiological Dimension

  • Learning preferences predicated by biological differences- gender & reaction to the physicalenvironment(noise, temperature, & light)


How can we assess student leaning styles l.jpg
How can we assess student leaning styles? of ways.

  • Myers-Briggs type Indicator(1985)

  • measures both the cognitive & affective dimensions.

  • The characteristics of each indicator

  • Jung Typology Test

  • 16 Types

  • Perceptual Learning Style Preference questionnaire (by Joy Reid)

  • Learning styles can change with time & context.

  • Teachers can help students reinforce their strengths and develop weaknesses.

  • Students benefit most from a teacher’s understanding of learning styles when as many domains as possible are integrated into the instruction.


How can computers multimedia help teachers address multiple learning styles l.jpg
How can computers & multimedia help teachers address multiple learning styles?

  • Multimedia- “a program or information environment that uses computers to integrate text, graphics, images, video, &audio”

  • Multimedia lessons appear to be able to address a large number of learning styles simultaneously.

Multicultural considerations in a call environment l.jpg

Multicultural Considerations in a CALL Environment Environment

►Multiculturalism & multicultural elements in call contexts

►Benefits of sensitivity to multicultural elements in CALL

► People who have not been exposed to other cultures are often not vary aware of their own culture

► the multicultural considerations involved in evaluating the implements used in CALL


Multiculturalism multicultural elements in call contexts l.jpg
Multiculturalism & Multicultural Elements in CALL Contexts Environment

► What is multicultural?

- a term to remind us that “culture” is more than one culture

- defined as the element to consider in call context


Multiculturalism multicultural elements in call contexts39 l.jpg
Multiculturalism & Multicultural Elements in CALL Contexts Environment

►Contexts = Students +Teachers +Target Language objectives

- student factor

-- the students age

-- the students’ ability of native language

- teacher factor

-- language proficiency of teachers


Multiculturalism multicultural elements in call contexts40 l.jpg
Multiculturalism & Multicultural Elements in CALL Contexts Environment

►Contexts = Students +Teachers +Target Language objectives

- target language objectives

-- grammar, writing, or pronunciation

-- the course required by specific organization

-- students’ goal

  • Teachers need to understand student different learning preferences and be aware of their teaching styles.

  • Limitation & challenges to assess student learning styles(-)

    - student level of literacy to understand questionnaire for assessing learning styles.

    - Validity & reliability of assessment tool

    - The number of students & other paper work


Slide45 l.jpg

By integrating diverse learning styles in teaching instruction, teachers maximize students learning benefits & increase student learning motivation.

Multimedia and CALL activities help develop diverse learning styles.

Integrating software use for different learning styles

Evaluating software based on cultural sensitivity when deciding to use

Teaching goals, student needs, & materials and technology available


Discussion l.jpg
Discussion instruction, teachers maximize students learning benefits & increase student learning motivation.

  • As a student, have you experienced a teacher whose teaching style did not match your learning style? As a teacher, have you experienced students whose learning styles did not match your teaching style? Did that affect your teaching, learning and/or motivation?

  • In our multicultural classroom, have you been aware

  • of cultural differences in learning styles?

  • How can we use traditional teaching methods (no computer and Internet) to serve the students who have different learning styles? Does CALL make it easier to address different learning styles?

  • Which questions will you focus on when you evaluate the cultural sensitivity of a website or software? Why?
