The concept of “learning styles”: a neuroscience myth

With so many learning styles being promoted it is hard to imagine there is no evidence to supprt them. Yet here we are.

Having been interested in learning styles many years ago I became disillusioned when I realised there were so many different approaches. Each brand has over lapping concepts but each also differs considerably.

I wondered how they could all be correct. As it turns out none are correct.
