It consists of 11 different teaching styles, five teacher-centered (aka reproductive/direct) and six student-centered (aka productive/indirect). 1) Use a teaching style questionnaire to assess your teaching style preferences. 2) Discuss the principles of adult learning 3) Review how different styles promote assessment and teaching of knowledge, attitudes and skills. 4) Develop a strategy for using a learning style questionnaire in your Size: KB.

Kolb's Learning Style Inventory (LSI) Perhaps one of the best-known and most widely used questionnaires is the Learning Style Inventory (LSI) based on Kolb's learning styles. The assessment allows students to discover their learning style and also provides information on how educators can use this information to best serve students as well as.

    Learn more about the different teaching styles that use a student-centered approach. High Tech Approach to Learning. Advancements in technology have propelled the education sector in the last few decades. As the name suggests, the high tech approach to learning utilizes different technology to aid students in their classroom learning. the use of manipulatives in early childhood math instruction, promote better math learning: Children who attend high- ity Montessori or traditional early childhood programs (Lillard, ). The benefits of the Montessori approach to mathematics learning in early childhood may, at least in part, be due to its effective use of manipulatives.
