I also preach learning styles so this is something to think about. Nice arguments here. Please feel free to tell me what you think in the comments section below.

  1. The learning style issue has been ongoing for a while and part of the argument is that there’s no evidence as to what happens to individuals after they get into their respective “learning zone/s”. Do their learning styles change or remain the same?
    Also, I think most teachers do incorporate different styles into their teaching and it’s not a situation of either this or that, rather it’s more multimodal in approach.
    Lastly, to look at teaching from a purely neurological angle is to negate the sociocultural contexts in which learners exist in and these do vary.
