doing tasks and learn from taking time to go over the task at hand. This is evident from my past experiences from school and work. 3. Conclusion Going on my past and present experiences I found I was able to take in and hold onto information better if I could apply the theory to a practical task i.e. my IT classes where I was able to do my own research and apply the theory in a practical manner and be able to see it work. Going forward I need to improve my low learning preference scores which is drawn up in appendices (See appendix B), I have also indentified that when I learn I must be able to do my own research and finds ways where it will can be used practically in order to see the finished task and be able to take it all in. 8

Learning Styles in Tom Wayman's Students Essay

1281 Words6 Pages

The poem “Students” by Tom Wayman, shows four different learning styles: The Vaccination Theory of Education, The Dipstick Theory of Education, The Easy Listener Theory of Learning, and The Kung Fu Theory of Education. Wayman is a teacher that has noticed that every person devolves into one of these different learning styles. The four different theory of education are used every day even if we do not know.

If sound exhibits acoustical variations, or what Perham calls an "acute changing-state," performance is impaired. Steady-state sounds with little acoustical variation don't impair performance nearly as much.”(Cutler).
The last theory is Tom Wayman own, and it contrast the other three; The Kung Fu Theory of Education is about using knowledge as a form of self-defense. Learning can help with problems a student will encounter. This is when students do not just punch and kick, but never stop learning. Students should always keep searching for new ways and techniques that will help them in real life
