Our learning style is a product of these two choice decisions. Educators should ensure that activities are designed and carried out in ways that offer each learner the chance to engage in the manner that suits them best.
Psychological science in the public interest, 9 3 People with a Converging learning style are best at finding practical uses for ideas and theories. Kolb called this style ‘diverging’ because these people perform better in situations that require ideas-generation, for example, brainstorming. Kolb questiomnaire that we cannot perform both variables on a single axis at the same time e.
A Converging learning style enables specialist and technology abilities.
Kolb’s Learning Styles and Experiential Learning Cycle | Simply Psychology
Learning Styles  Having developed the model over many years prior, David Kolb published his learning styles model in People with this style are more attracted to logically sound theories than approaches based on practical value. Honey and Mumford 1. It’s often easier to see the construction of Kolb’s learning styles in terms of a two-by-two matrix. In formal learning situations, people with this style prefer readings, lectures, exploring analytical models, and having time to think things through.

Kolb’s Learning Styles and Experiential Learning Cycle
These people require good clear explanation rather than practical opportunity. A typical presentation of Kolb’s two continuums is that the east-west axis is called the Processing Continuum how we approach a taskand the north-south axis is called the Perception Continuum our emotional response, or how we think or feel about it.
Peter Honey and Alan Mumford developed their learning styles system as a variation on the Kolb model while working on a project for the Chloride corporation in the ‘s.

These reflections are then assimilated absorbed and translated into abstract concepts with implications for action, which the person can actively test and experiment with, which suestionnaire turn enable the creation of new experiences.

It’s often easier to see the construction of Kolb’s learning styles in terms of a two-by-two matrix.
But it is also wrong to ban or denegrate ideas, simply because evidence does not exist for their effectiveness, or because in certain applications the methods are found to be ineffective.
The diagram also highlights Kolb’s terminology for the four learning styles; diverging, assimilating, and converging, accommodating:. They excel at understanding wide-ranging information and organising it a clear logical format.
A typical presentation of Kolb’s two continuums is that the east-west axis is called the Processing Continuum how we approach a taskand the north-south axis is called the Perception Continuum our emotional response, or how we think or feel about it. These people are able to look at things from different perspectives. Here are brief descriptions of the four Kolb learning styles: Honey and Mumford say of their system: People with an accommodating learning style will tend to rely on others for information than carry out their own analysis.
Having developed the model over many years prior, David Kolb published his learning styles model in These learning styles are the combination of two lines of axis continuums each formed between what Kolb calls ‘dialectically related modes’ of ‘grasping experience’ doing or watchingand ‘transforming experience’ feeling or thinking: They are attracted to new challenges and experiences, and to carrying out plans.
Arguably therefore the terms ‘activist’, ‘reflector’, ‘theorist’, and ‘pragmatist’ effectively ‘belong’ to the Honey and Mumford theory.
