Sometimes it seems like all this talk about different kinds of learners is just pandering to the kids, but it's really not.
I know that I struggle to learn when something is delivered in a lecture. No matter how interesting I find it, my mind is almost guaranteed to wander unless I'm engaged somehow.
If I'm able to participate in a discussion, I do much better. I think teaching strategies that allow for kids to be involved in their own learning are the best.
That goes doubly for adult learning strategies. It's difficult enough to be an adult learner without having to worry about not being able to take in information.
