From the dawn of time, Education has been and still one of the most important subjects that are facing humanity: learning how to hunt in order to eat, how to make a fire to stay warm and cook or learning how to adapt to different environments to survive.
Nowadays, The education system is dividing people with what they can and can not learn.
We used to learn what we needed but now we learn what we can.
Does the answer lie in who can learn what?
We all are used to learn at the same pace, in the same classroom, and with the same books but we don’t all have the same outcomes.
How different are we?
A study published in 2016 found that students who preferred learning visually thought they would remember pictures better, and those who preferred learning verbally thought they’d remember words better. But those preferences had no correlation to which they actually remembered better later on words or pictures. Essentially, all the “learning style” meant, in this case, the subjects liked words or pictures better, not that words or pictures worked better for their memories.
That same year, another study found no relationship between the study subjects’ learning style preference (visual or auditory) and their performance on reading or listening-comprehension tests. Instead, the visual learners performed best on all kinds of tests.
This doesn’t mean everyone is equally good at every skill of course. People have different abilities, not styles. that’s why we gathered information about thinking abilities and we used the triarchic theory of intelligence: identifying the student’s intelligence is the first step to help him to apply and improve it !
Everyone is able to think in words, everyone is able to think in mental images. It’s much better to think of everyone having a toolbox of ways to think, and think to yourself, which tool is best?
The introduction of a New ERA:
To ensure that good learning experience is maintained, we adapted the classroom to the students and not the students to the classroom.
We built an Education platform (called ADA) in order to allow each person to learn at its own pace. ADA uses machine learning and educational psychology to propose to each student a course that is adapted to his/her learning style.
For the last month, we’ve been working on a research to find a positive correlation between the learning styles and the types of intelligence based on the triarchic theory of intelligence of Mr. Sternberg a Cornell University and an IBM professor.
For this, we tested the memory, attention, and perception and linked them to the thinking types (and intelligence) of the students so we can identify each student’s strengths when it comes to learning.
Based on the results, we’re adapting the content of our courses to each learning style, making learning easy for everyone!
