VARK: The Biggest Myth In Education

There is no credible research showing that students learn better when being taught with their "favorite" learning style. 

However, using multi-modal (Universal Design for Learning) methods of having more than one way of presenting information does improve learning. 

Using two or more modes (audio, visual, text-based, and/or doing / performing a skill  or concept) is the best practice.

glossaria2 "I feel like the "learning styles" myth has ultimately HELPED teaching, though. It's encouraged teachers to be more multimodal in their TEACHING style in order to (in their minds) reach a wider variety of learners. Even if the hypothesis was wrong, it's ultimately created a stronger teaching style."
