  2. TOC Act Reflect Theory Prag Tools Web Table of Contents • Introduction • The 4 Learning Styles (Honey & Mumford) • Activists • Reflectors • Theorists • Pragmatists • What tools can we use? • Useful Web Sites www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/ www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/

  3. TOC Act Reflect Theory Prag Tools Web Introduction Honey & Mumford • Peter Honey and Alan Mumford have identified four main learning style preferences • We need to know how we can incorporate those learning styles within the VLE • By enabling students to use their natural style, we will be helping them to learn quickly and easily • We will need to look at some of the tools available to us. www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/

  5. TOC Act Reflect Theory Prag Tools Web Activists • Activists like to be involved in new experiences. They are open minded and enthusiastic about new ideas but get bored with implementation. • They enjoy doing things and tend to act first and consider the implications afterwards. • They like working with others but tend to hog the limelight. www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/ www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/

  6. TOC Act Reflect Theory Prag Tools Web Reflectors • Reflectors like to stand back and look at a situation from different perspectives. • They like to collect data and think about it carefully before coming to any conclusions. • They enjoy observing others and will listen to their views before offering their own. www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/ www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/

  7. TOC Act Reflect Theory Prag Tools Web Theorists • Theorists adapt and integrate observations into complex and logically sound theories. • They think problems through in a step by step way. • They tend to be perfectionists who like to fit things into a rational scheme. • They tend to be detached and analytical rather than subjective or emotive in their thinking. www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/ www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/

  8. TOC Act Reflect Theory Prag Tools Web Pragmatists • Pragmatists are keen to try things out. • They want concepts that can be applied to their job. • They tend to be impatient with lengthy discussions and are practical and down to earth. www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/ www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/

  9. TOC Act Reflect Theory Prag Tools Web What tools can we use? • Most of us have elements of more than one learning style. • Can a VLE encompass all these styles? If so, how? www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/ www.ucl.ac.uk/learningtechnology/
