Global Learners Are Less Systematic

When it comes to information absorption, we must be resourceful in finding ways to capture attention and engagement. This is where mixing and matching different learning styles and mediums comes into play. It’s not necessarily that any of these styles and mediums are scientifically better than others, but sometimes we can burn out, grow bored, or simply not care when something is presented in a way that we don’t like or prefer. Thus, we present a couple of different models for different styles and mediums: active versus reflective, sensing versus intuitive, visual versus verbal/other, and sequential versus global, as well as the dubious knowledge of the learning pyramid, which contains listening, reading, audio/visual, demonstration, discussion, real-life experience, and teaching others. Remember, the myth of learning styles is just that—a myth.
