Different individuals learn things differently some learn through observations, while some learn through personal experiences. In short, it can be said as that different person’s different natures and styles nothing can in common. Our cultural and social influences also vary which also have some impact over our learning styles. Doctors, psychologists have come up with number subjective theories which talk about different styles of learning that an individual can have. Studies have come up with conclusions that learning styles depend on the personality of the individual.
When we talk about individual personality, we are talking about a blend of traits that makes a person unique. It can be defined as the dynamic composition of an individual including systems- psychological and physical- that represents his or her behaviour and thought. According to idiographic theorists, each has a unique mental organization and that some characteristics are only possessed by only one person. Due to this uniqueness in traits, it becomes hard to compare one person with another. There are several theories that have been developed to explain personality.
Smith (2008) also breaks down the multiple kinds of intelligence by the way the brain is used. The multiple in-telligence varies by each style of learning, each defined from the referenced individuals, some of them are similar to each other but named different and others not so much alike. Linguistic intel-ligence also known as language intelligence, and emotional intelligence are stated in both articles from Smith (2008) “Howard Gardner, multiple intelligence and education”, and Pfeifer (1999) “Understanding intelligence”. Other types of intelligence identified are spatial intelligence, math-ematical intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, artificial intelligence, and b... ... middle of paper ... ...

The first camp holds the belief that science’s aim is to give proper descriptions of what the world is like. On the other hand, the second camp believes that a proper description of the world must be given, but acceptance of corresponding theories as true is not necessary. Following the principles of the second camp, van Fraassen offers his alternative to scientific realism. His stance is known as constructive empiricism. According to van Fraassen, “science aims to give us theories which are empirically adequate; and acceptance of a theory involves a belief only that it is true”.
Natural science, as the TOK definition, was the sciences that prove the basic rules and the laws of the nature. It’s based on the measurement and processions of the quantitative data in the real world. Humans invented some models of natural processes that research both human behaviour and social patterns as well. As two Interdependences subjects in AOK, the human science aim to interpret the experiences, activities, living, and artefacts which were associated with human beings. The data, for example, were the measurements of a particular item or process which based on the experiment mainly; and about theory, was the understanding which about the existing empirical knowledge, experience, facts, rules, and cognitive hypothesis proven with the logical & a reasonable deduction in the human science and nature science.
Introduction The following literature review is an analysis of a number of components of the hidden curriculum, as it was initially conceived in the literature and as it has developed over time. As the adjective proposes, such a curriculum is not obvious and could be understood as the underbelly of the more apparent mandated curriculum. The conversation of hidden curriculum touches on provocative questions of power, authority, inequity, control and political suppression of social class. The concept of hidden curriculum is itself every so often hidden in the literature. Competing Concepts of Hidden Curriculum The notion of a hidden curriculum was established to discuss the implicit or unspoken values, norms and behaviours that are present in the educational setting.
Three Styles of Learning If a survey was being done on how people learn one would immediately notice that no two answers would be the same. People from all walks of life and culture would answer that they learn better a certain way. The way a person learns is something that is different for every individual. I, myself, learn in a couple of different ways depending on the situation and what the learning experience calls for. The three styles of learning that I will examine and give my perspective on are online resources, learning teams, and problem based learning.
Comparing the Two Theories of Cognitive Development There are three main types of cognitive development. There is Piaget's theory, Vygotsky's theory and the Information processing approach. The two theories that I am going to compare and contrast are Piaget and Vygotsky's theories. There are many differences between these two theories, but there are also many similarities too. Piaget suggests that cognitive development takes place as a result of experiences which force the child to accommodate new information, creating new schemas and occasionally leading to a qualitatively different kind of thinking- moving from one stage to another, but these changes need to depend on readiness.
Over the course of history, sociologists have wondered about the causes of deviance. They all have different conceits of the factors of why an individual engages in deviant behavior. These ideas can all be classified into different categories of theories such as learning theory, social disorganization theory, labeling theory and anomie theory. This paper only focuses on the learning theory and the anomie, or strain theory. The learning theory was developed by Walter B. Miller and the strain theory was created by Robert K. Merton.
(Pritchard, 2009) The brain being a very complex, and has to be addressed in several different ways. No one person learns the same but information will be retained and stored as part of the learning process. An “example of this idea of variety is that based on the V-A-K description of learning styles by Levine (2003)” (Pritchard, 2009) Levine looked at this in a different light and that you can transform things with learning like changing verbal to visual. By changing these things up there are different approaches to how you retain information.
