Skepticism And Education Series – Learning Styles Don’t Exist

It’s the 2nd January, and I’ve started the 365 Days of Philosophy website (both for WordPress and Tumblr, so you can choose what format you like). But in addition, I’m keen to focus a little more on education and myths this year, particularly after presenting in Berlin on pseudoscience within the field.

So, to start, you might like to check out this video from 2008 that caught my attention:

Over on 365 Days of Philosophy, I’ll be addressing another (somewhat related) myth about left/right brain dominance, because an article from Philosophy Now uses it as an analogy to explain how people define philosophy differently. Until then, enjoy watching and I’ll keep up a series on Skepticism and Education throughout the year (with more on the topic of Learning Styles, which has irked me for a while… and in fact cost me quite a bit in the past with books and resources!).
