Learning Styles in the Math Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We know that everyone has a different learning style such as left brain, right brain, auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. To connect more effectively with all of our students we need to be able to teach in all of these modes. Many teachers teach in different modes, but presenting ideas to students becomes so much more powerful when the teacher choses the mode more deliberately based on the student's learning style. But... how do we recognize the learning style of an individual student? How can we present material more effectively by addressing each of these modalities? What is the result when a teacher is not aware of his/her own learning style? Drawing from his experience in the classroom, Nils will share his answers to these questions. He will also "teach"mini-lessons with the same content, addressing drastically different modalities of learning.
