Index of Learning Styles

The Index of Learning Styles is an on-line survey instrument used to assess preferences on four dimensions (active/reflective, sensing/intuitive, visual/verbal, and sequential/global) of a learning style model formulated by Richard M. Felder and Linda K. Silverman. The instrument was developed and validated by Richard M. Felder and Barbara A. Soloman. ILS users should be aware of an important point.

Richard Felder: Resources in Science and Engineering Education Richard Felder's Home Page Richard M. Felder Dr. LEARNING STYLES AND STRATEGIES What are the differences? Many people who read this description may conclude incorrectly that they are global, since everyone has experienced bewilderment followed by a sudden flash of understanding. What makes you global or not is what happens before the light bulb goes on. Sequential learners may not fully understand the material but they can nevertheless do something with it (like solve the homework problems or pass the test) since the pieces they have absorbed are logically connected. Strongly global learners who lack good sequential thinking abilities, on the other hand, may have serious difficulties until they have the big picture. Even after they have it, they may be fuzzy about the details of the subject, while sequential learners may know a lot about specific aspects of a subject but may have trouble relating them to different aspects of the same subject or to different subjects.

Sperm: 15 Crazy Things You Should Know - Sperm: 15 crazy things you should know - Pictures When it comes to sperm, people always seem to have an agenda. Some want to kill sperm cells. Some want to buy or sell them. Some fret over their failure to get the job done. Why can't we just appreciate sperm for the amazing little wrigglers that they are? VAK Probably because of its simplicity and practicality, VAK theory is widely recognised by teachers - particularly those who advocate Accelerated Learning techniques - but the idea that we receive information via different “modalities” has been around considerably longer than that and can be traced back to the work of Grace Fernald ("Remedial Techniques in Basic School Subjects") who promoted kinaesthetic learning techniques; Samuel Orton’s work on dyslexia; Anna Gillingham’s subsequent work on developing multisensory approaches; and the holistic educational philosophy of Maria Montessori. Normally, we each have five senses. There is an increasing realisation that we respond subconsciously to our sense of smell. Aromatherapy is based on the principle that aromas can help to create mood. More simply, manufacturers of household products usually try to make them "smell nice".

Facts About Dihydrogen Monoxide Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a colorless and odorless chemical compound, also referred to by some as Dihydrogen Oxide, Hydrogen Hydroxide, Hydronium Hydroxide, or simply Hydric acid. Its basis is the highly reactive hydroxyl radical, a species shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. The atomic components of DHMO are found in a number of caustic, explosive and poisonous compounds such as Sulfuric Acid, Nitroglycerine and Ethyl Alcohol. For more detailed information, including precautions, disposal procedures and storage requirements, refer to one of the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) available for DHMO: Should I be concerned about Dihydrogen Monoxide?

Overview of learning styles Many people recognize that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques. Learning styles group common ways that people learn. Everyone has a mix of learning styles. Some people may find that they have a dominant style of learning, with far less use of the other styles. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances. There is no right mix. 7 steps to publishing in a scientific journal Before you hit “submit,” here’s a checklist (and pitfalls to avoid) By Aijaz A. Shaikh Posted on 4 April 2016 Aijaz Shaikh, a doctoral candidate at the Jyväskylä University School of Business and Economics in Finland, on the shore of Kauai Island, Hawaii, after presenting a research paper at a conference there.

Helping Visual Learners Succeed We all want our children to do well in school. Sometimes though kids struggle with their school work and we’re just not sure how to help. As a school counselor, the first thing I do to help students academically is to identify how they learn. There are three different ways we learn. We either learn by seeing (visual), hearing (auditory), or doing (kinesthetic).

Merchandise $ Caffè sospeso - Wikipedia History[edit] One 2010 account claims the tradition was over 100 years old, but declined during the postwar economic boom, so that it is mainly observed around Christmas time.[3] A 2008 article reported the tradition was obsolescent, the reporter having visited three bars where it had not been observed for at least 15 years.[4] Aurelio De Laurentiis is reported to pay for ten sospesi after each victory by S.S.C. Napoli, the football club of which he is chairman.[5] In March 2013, John Sweeney launched a Facebook page for "Suspended Coffees", which by 2015 had led to the purchase of over 15 million coffees in 34 countries.[15] Learning Concept Map Learning Topics Learning Concept Map Click on a desired topic on the below concept map or use the topic list on the left.

An Incomplete List of Communities on Slack There is a lot of buzz around Slack and how is changing the networking in startup communities, enabling a better and more elegant interaction between people from different countries and professional backgrounds. Since the number of groups is steadily growing day by day, I put some order, creating a list of the most popular and trendy communities on Slack, with details about their size (the real number of members is updated at June 15th), or applicable entry fees. I’m sure several are still missing, so please if you know anyone I forgot to mention, just drop me a line or write a comment and I’ll update the list. Slack communities:
