Associate Professor David Kraemer was quoted in a Discover story about learning styles. According to Kraemer, "There's no scientific evidence supporting the idea that people have different learning styles. At least, not in any sense that is actionable for improving education." "Isn't a primary goal of education to train students to improve their weak areas, and not just play to their strengths? So, even if there was evidence to support these theories, I'm not sure how they would be implemented by teachers."
Professor Kraemer supports the presentation of same ideas in different formats saying "repetition is often key to understanding and long-term retention of knowledge. Presenting the information in different ways increases the likelihood that one of them will stick."
