Abstract Conceptualization (Analytical)
A person’ s learning style may be defined in part by the
answers to five questions:
Type of information preferentially perceive by the learner:
sensory – sights, sounds, physical sensations, or
intuitive – memories, ideas, insights
Modality is sensory information most effectively perceived:
visual – pictures, diagrams, graphs, demonstrations, or
verbal – sounds, written and spoken words and formulas?
Organization of information which is most comfortable for the learner:
inductive – facts and observations are given, underlying principles are inferred, or
deductive – principles are given, consequences and applications are deduced?
4. How does the student prefer to process information:actively – through engagement in physical activity or discussion, or reflectivity – through introspection?5. How does the student progress toward understanding:sequentially – in a logical progression of small incremental steps or globally – in large jumps, holistically?From: “Reaching the Second Tier: Learning and Teaching Styles in College Science Education.” by R. M. Felder, 1993, Journal of College Science Teaching. 23 (5) p. 286
So that much of the mass is often ignored. The influences of cultural elements need to be explicitly explored rather than taken for granted or ignored.
