    Interesting resource David. I’m not sure that I would go all the way with the “learning styles don’t exist” banner, 🙂 but they are certainly problematic. Couple of thoughts. If you don’t know this, have a look at the 2004 report by Frank Coffield et al. Reference in this TES article :

    The other *big* point about learning styles is “So what does a teacher *do* about it?”. You can’t be all things to all people. Seems to me – to cut a very long story short – that it is *learners* who have to know about learning styes, so that they can have an idea of what works for them. The teacher’s role then, is in alerting learners to the (their – the learner’s) need to consider their own position on any “style” continuum.
