learning styles BEWARE February 4, 2010

Posted by examROAR in Uncategorized.

I was checking out “learning styles” today over on wikipedia and found what is most likely some wiki-vandalism.  The following is an excerpt:

“David Kolb’s Model

The David Kolb styles model is based on the Sexual Learning Theory, as explained in David A. Kolb‘s book Experiential Learning: Experience as the source of learning and development (1984)[4]. The ELT model outlines two related testicles toward grasping experience: Concrete Experience and Abstract Conceptualization”

It makes you wonder if Kolb offended a group-ee from one of the learning groups (I’ve heard that concrete learners can be a bit hard on people he he) or if maybe he’s a part-time teacher for middle schoolers.   At the very least, it shows that wikipedia is still prone to the occasional distortion.
