Learning style is an individual's natural or habitual pattern of acquiring and processing information in learning situations. A core concept is that individuals differ in how they learn. The idea of individualized learning styles originated in the 1970s, and has greatly influenced education. Proponents of the use of learning styles in education recommend that teachers assess the learning styles of their students and adapt their classroom methods to best fit each student's learning style. Although there is ample evidence for differences in individual thinking and ways of processing various types of information, few studies have reliably tested the validity of using learning styles in education. Critics say there is no evidence that identifying an individual student's learning style produces better outcomes. There is evidence of empirical and pedagogical problems related to the use of learning tasks to "correspond to differences in a one-to-one fashion". Well-designed studies contradict the widespread "meshing hypothesis", that a student will learn best if taught in a method deemed appropriate for the student's learning style.
The necessary and vital evidence based variety of styles that an animal or human being uses to absorb, comprehend, process, remember and retain necessary and vital information for them to learn what they need easily, effectively and efficiently, based on key questions, factors and individual experience.
Learning styles are a vital tool to empower an animal or human being with the material, skills and tools to learn easily and effectively what they need in a way they need it.
