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.


Low order thinking vs High order thinking

Benedict Bloom, together with a team of educational psychologists came up with a study detailing that 95% of test items in schools measure low order thinking. That was in 1965. He and his team suggested other domain of learning for assessment, now commonly referred to as Blooms Taxonomy.

  1. Knowledge
  2. Comprehension
  3. Application
  4. Analysis
  5. Synthesis
  6. Evaluation
Along with each category are action verbs that teachers may use as guide to determine what students can learn.

I use this mnemonic to easily memorize these six levels: Karen Cooks Adobo and Asado Saturday Evenings.

Update to Bloom's Taxonomy
Recently though, Bloom's Taxonomy has been updated. Some educational resources will give different levels which is:

  1. Remember
  2. Understand
  3. Apply
  4. Analyze
  5. Evaluate
  6. Create
I came up with this mnemonic to help me remember this: Ruth Uses Apples and Almonds Every Christmas.
