Kolb's Learning Styles

Kolb’s learning styles are defined by an individual’s relative preference for the four modes of the learning cycle described in experiential learning theory: Concrete Experience, Reflective Observation, Abstract Conceptualization, and Active Experimentation. These learning styles can be assessed by the Kolb Learning Style Inventory (2005). Nine distinct learning style patterns have been observed: experiencing, diverging, reflecting, assimilating, thinking, converging, acting, accommodating, and balancing. Every student learns differently.

Learning style definition - the preferential way in which the student absorbs, processes, comprehends and retains information

Individual learning styles depend on cognitive, emotional and environmental factors, as well as one’s prior experience.

Have you ever wondered why you do better in some classes than others? It may depend on your individual learning style. Your learning style influences the way you understand information and solve problems.


A Little School That Could

In AralMuna, we have always believed in the power of education. Of it being a great equalizer and a powerful catapult to up things around especially for the less privileged.

Our story for today summarizes all this with much heart and pride.

In an unpopular school in Bicol, Sorsogon State College (SSC) has produced  Top 1 and Top 2 board exam takers of mechanical engineering of 2011 September exam results. The two male graduates are sons of a tricycle driver and a farmer/fisherman.

Earlier this year, two other SSC graduates topped the electrical engineering board garnering the Top 1 and the Top 10. The school first made waves when in 2006, a graduate topped 8th rank in the electrical engineering exams.

About the SSC
SSC traces its root as a trade school in origin, in December 1993 it was elevated to a State College level. It charges P150/unit. A typical semester tuition fee would therefore average to P5000 or less than US$100.

In 2010, SSC received a national budget allocation of P93.64M. It also collected P44M from its almost 9,000 student population. 260 personnel are under its payroll. Due to this limited budget, 40 to 45 students  share in a laboratory suitable only for 20-30 students.
