Overall, learning styles are imperative since they assist schools to appreciate the disparities among students and strategize accordingly on how to accommodate the learning diversity (Kolb & Kolb 2005, 194).The article analyses the research that relate to ELT and the nine regions of learning. Background The article commences by acknowledging the diversity among learners. Consequently, the article seeks to reveal the research undertaken to understand learners. The article begins by establishing categories of all learners. The categories enlist students with similar learning tendencies. The tendencies include concrete experience (CE), abstract conceptualization (AC), reflective observation (RO) and active experimentation (AE). These tendencies assist student in grasping experience. The article dwells into the research undertaken to establish ELT. The research realizes that it is not only important to study the learner but also the environment surrounding the subject. This reveals that learning tendencies also vary with the subject’s environment. Researching beyond the learner enlarges the scope of studies relating to ELT. Lewin pioneered in this field by stating that individual’s characteristics are not only genetic, but also emanate from prolonged interaction with the environment. ...Show more
Reflection of Kolb learning styles Name: Instructor: Date: Task: Article review Introduction This write-up seeks to analyse and conceptualize on an article that addresses studying tendencies among students. The diverse learning tendencies have emanated from far-reaching research conducted on experimental learning theory (ELT)…
Kolb’s work entitled “Experiential Learning: Experience As The Source Of Learning And Development” reports experiential learning reported earlier including the work of Jung, Piaget and Rogers. The learning theory posited by Kolb is one that states there are four specific learning styles and these are framed in a four-stage cycle of learning.
A Critical Evaluation of My Learning and Development Whilst On Work Placement This model is intended to help me to use my work experience as a prospect for academic and personal development. It will enable me to critically reflect upon and analyze my skills, learning styles, strengths and weakness, and plan how I can be able to expand them as I learn from experience (Sammon, 2008).
In his works, Kolb’s includes this cycle of learning as a central principle of his experiential learning theory expressed as a four stag cycle of learning, in this, immediate or concrete experiences provide a basis for observation as well as reflection.

The author however continues to indicate that not all students learn the same way; thus, the approaches of teaching need to be different to suit different learning needs (Green, 2014).
In my course of learning, I
