Despite their popularity in the educational world, the existence of different "learning styles" has not been clearly supported by scientific evidence. As a matter of fact, a team of researchers recently came to the conclusion that learning style-based instruction could even be detrimental to students.
Students are more likely to engage with and act upon feedback when it is warm and uses simple strategies to influence their attitude towards their past performance and future progress in positive ways, new study confirms.
Modern brain research disproving the dualistic myth of a distinction between “mind” and body should translate into a new approach to education harnessing the potential benefits of “embodied learning”, new paper argues.
Project-based learning is superior to traditional instruction, new study finds. Not only does it help students develop additional skills and attributes: it is also superior in terms of knowledge acquisition and academic performance.
