LESSON EIGHT (8) CONCEPTS OF LEARNING AND LEARNING STYLES: VAK LEARNING MODEL AND EDUCATIONAL IMPLICATIONS
This lesson focuses on the definitions and meaning of learning as implied in education. What constitutes learning or otherwise is explored to bring to awareness. The features of the Visual-Auditory-Kinesthetic (VA K) learning model, their limitations and educational
implications are discussed in detail. This will enable student teachers to become aware of themselves, how they learn and also appreciate the learning styles of others and that of pupils they will be teaching to enable them select or employ differentiated strategies that would support the learning of diverse learners across the three specialisms.
