As a big fan of Veritasium’s videos, I was very intrigued when he posted this video last week and wanted to get others’ thoughts on the myth/reality of learning styles.

SF 47, been texting guy (49) for a week, plan to meet tomorrow. The texting is getting too much, good morning and good night texts. I consider anyone from an app a stranger until meeting in person. Over the course of weekend, he's sent 3 YouTube songs with "love" in the title (Etta James). I am feeling more and more uncomfortable. He's coming off as needy or desperate, huge turnoff for me. I have slowed my response rate. How to deal with this?
Hi all, I'm about to start my first job here in the US and I need to open my first bank account. Which bank(s) do you recommend? Or which ones should I avoid? Do I need to open checking and savings accounts at once? Also, I will need a credit card from the US, should I apply for it in the same bank? TIA
Which is better, business consulting or tech consulting in terms of learning, broad opportunities, growth and money?
Any “starter kits” or one-stop shops that would provide requisite services for new opportunistic credit shop
I’ve been a capability lead/only BD contact for this capability for over 6 years. I was just forwarded an email from a guy that I’ve worked with dozens of times asking a dude who is jr to me (contd.)
This is a stretch, but looking for help! I am trying to find a particular small, simple piece of serveware for bar snacks. It is likely made of stainless steel, and has three small circles for snacks like nuts, all connected by a tall holder in the middle. For anyone who has eaten at the 21 Club in NY, they give you snacks in this at their bar. Does anyone know what I am talking about or where I can find one?
Well ladies today I turn 30 I keep getting emotional not because I’m getting older but I’m just so grateful for people and experiences I had in my 20s. I’m also someone who stressed a lot about work and my career in my 20s. Now I still want to do a good job, but I don’t care as much. Did you have any realization when you hit 30? :)
Hi guys I have an offer from Accenture and no issues in terms of CTC, job profile or other things. The only thing I am skeptical about is the job security. Do they really get rid of employees in a regular basis or the covid situation was a one time measure? This would probably be the last switch in my career and security would be of utmost importance to me. Please advise

Does anyone have a contract that you use for computers when they are sent home with students? I definitely need some ideas of one. Feel free to email it to me email@example.com
Middle school teachers (and parents) can attest:
Teachers who have already started with students: how are they handling it all? do they take it seriously? are they well-adjusted or is it like they forgot about what school is? LOL
Are your kids checked out already? Are you checked out? What are you looking forward to most during the holiday break?
The family everybody knows 😂😂

Any co-teachers been moved from one grade level to another suddenly? I started working in 4th grade this past Tuesday and I know I wasn’t given the real reason for the switch. How did you handle it?
Are you still motivated to teach this year? I wish I had the same enthusiasm I usually have before school starts...
Coming sooner than you think
Has anyone heard of Doug reeves? Just curious a district in my area is having him speak at a virtual meeting coming up on ways to improve D and F grades.He has a sketchy past from being in jail for embezzling money for an organization and years ago he was accused of molesting a coworkers child then several years go by and he was acquitted. Regardless if he was acquitted or not why would a district hire this professional speaker to speak to a group of teachers?? How about someone with a cjeanrr
Teachers in a high needs/stressful school: would you prefer a school district where you are rotated through positions?
I’m curious of how many of us are in public, charter, private, or parochial. I work at a large public school in SF
Our school recently hired a "culture and climate specialist." Does anyone else have this position in their district? Do you feel like it's made a difference?
Anyone feel they are being taken advantage of by everyone? Admin...students...parents...just tire of being coerced, pushed, nudged, persuaded to make the proper action/ choice due to whatever circumstance there may be.

I don’t think they are completely a myth. I think the way they’ve been applied is problematic. In my experience, they apply when teaching different subjects. Different brains learn different materials in different ways. I may learn one concept one way easily, but need a different style to learn a different topic.
I like Veritasium as well but I don't think he did a great job in this video of distinguishing what was a myth and what was useful. I think one myth is that a particular person will thrive through only one learning style. I think another myth is the idea that a person's preferred learning style is the most important consideration when planning a lesson for them.
I think that the concepts of learning styles can be useful though. One utility would be to think about which learning style would be most useful for a particular piece of content. Veritasium even seems to acknowledge this. For example he created Snatoms because he wanted students to be able to feel how atoms come together. A teacher could easily explain this to students or have them read about it but he thought it was important for that to be a more kinesthetic experience.
During my teacher program they said learning styles were a myth. That was….a bunch 😁 of years ago. I cringe a little bit inside when I hear teachers refer to the theory.
That makes perfect sense.
As a teacher, I try to have students explore material using as many of their senses as possible. It brings learning to life. I’d love to teach at a school that focused on experiential learning. Lots of trips and experiences would be 🤩.
I have always approached the notion of learning styles as being irrelevant regardless of whether the theory has any merit. We don’t have to look far to understand why. For instance in sports, athletes are continuously told to work on their weaknesses not their strengths so that they can become a more complete player. They are not told that the sport should be modified to be tailored to their strengths. In fact anyone who suggests this would be laughed out of the room. But that is because American culture and society values athletic rigor and routinely makes a mockery of academic rigor and this is a prime example of that.
Then there is another issue, learning styles have almost no meaning or relevance past a certain point of learning. How exactly does one produce a kinesthetic proof of the irrationality of the square root of two? You need to learn mathematical logic which like most disciplines falls outside the domain of any or all of these supposed “learning styles”.
Didn’t know this, thanks for sharing!
