"If the child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way [he] learn[s]" - Ignacio Estrada, Facebook Post
Learning styles-based education (LSBEd) places the child as the center of education. Learning Styles-Based Education uses an enhanced instructional design (FIER Instructional design) that includes the 5-step, 5-cycle model of teaching. It follows the learning styles model as a basis in the formulation of objectives, outcomes, activities, and assessment.
To agree with some educational theorists like John Dewey, Jean Piaget, Lv Vygotsky, Maria Montessori, and Carl Rogers, here, the child is the main focus: the development of the child's abilities and skills, and the placement of the child. The child is molded into a wholesome individual that can become a productive contributor to the society's needs. In short, the child is molded and taught in such a way that he may be able to perform and produce the desired outcomes.
