The models of the personal learning styles

The models of the personal learning styles.

In the literature, there are many models of educational styles, and all offer different descriptions and classifications. Coffield

highlights the 71 models of styles of education and considers 13 of them leading to the theoretical models of the importance and

breadth of the field of their use and their impact on other models of image styles (Coffield, Moseley, etc., 2004). Despite the fact

that in this area a lot of research, some important questions still remain open. First of all, there is no single term learning style.

Honey and Mumford, for example, determine the learning style as «the description of the attitudes and behaviors that determines

an individual’s preferred learning style» (Honey, Mumford, 1992). Felder defines educational styles as «characteristic strengths

and preferences of the ways in which students learn the process information» (Felder, Silverman, 1988). James Gardner defines

learning style more closely, arguing that it is «an integrated method and the conditions in which students perceive and most

effectively treated with store and reproduce what they are trying to learn» (Gardner, 1999).


Depending on the definitions and values ​​of the educational aspects of the style of other authors call this educational strategy and

cognitive style. Educational strategies can be regarded as some methods that students use in certain situations. These strategies

may vary depending on the teacher, the subject and the situation.



Caufield pitched 5 models such large groups in this classification is based on the idea is to try to reflect the views of the main

theorists in the field of learning styles. In the first group based on the idea that learning styles and preferences are largely base

four modalities: visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile. The second group deals with the idea that learning styles reflect the

underlying characteristics of the structure including the types of cognitive abilities of students. The third category of works with

the learning styles as a single component of a relatively stable personality type. In the fourth group learning styles are considered

to be relatively stable preferences in education. The latter category is by learning styles to educational approaches, strategies,

orientation and training concepts
