Episode 162: Zombie ideas

zombieVAK up your troubles in your old kitbag… as Matthew and Steve chat through some ideas that really should be dead but still seem to be stalking the pedagogic corridors.  VAK and learning styles is one.  Are there also ideas with potential that are turned into zombies through their misuse?  Bloom’s Taxonomy might be an example.

This study is worth following up:   Learning styles and pedagogy in post-16 learning: a systematic and critical review, by  Frank Coffield, David Moseley, Elaine Hall, Kathryn Ecclestone.  A link to it can be found here.

Please let us know your thoughts about any ideas that are still doing the rounds but should have been finished off.

Anyway, need to find some straw and an old sheet pronto!
