Learning Theory: (40-50-word identification and description of the theory based on Miller or Van Brummelen) The learning theory that I will use for this lesson will be Kolb’s four learning styles . Kolb’s theory is that all people learn in the characteristic four- step pattern. First, a person has an experience. Then, he or she reflects on that experience, analyzing it and trying to make sense of it before attempting to fit the experience in to a broader conceptual framework of the world. This latter involves fitting the sense of the experience into an individual’s collection of theories about how the world operates. Once he or she has done that in effect, formed a hypothesis about how things work the person tries it out, and this experimentation, in turn, leads to another experience from which he or she can retreat and reflect. Kolb’s notion is that this four-step cycle goes on in our lives many times a day and that reinforcing cycles add to larger structures of beliefs or hypotheses that we carry with us throughout our lives.
