Connection of different learning theories by Mind Map: Connection of different learning theories

1. Kolb

1.1. Diverging (feeling and watching): They are sensitive. Prefer to watch rather than do.

1.2. Assimilating (watching and thinking): Concise, logical approach.

1.3. Converging (doing and thinking): They prefer technical tasks.

1.4. Accommodating (doing and feeling): 'hands-on’ and relies on intuition rather than logic.

2. Gregorc's

2.1. Concrete Sequential (CS). Order, logical sequence, following directions, predictability, and getting facts.

2.2. Abstract Random (AR). Listening to others, bringing harmony to group.

2.3. Abstract Sequential (AS). Analysing situations before making a decision or acting, and applying logic.

2.4. Concrete Random (CR). experimenting to find answers, taking risks, using their intuition, and solving problems independently.

3. David Keirsey

3.1. Artisans: born for action, particularly for artful action -- making free, spontaneous maneuvers that get quick, effective results.

3.2. Guardians: undertake tasks and actions cautiously, and always with careful preparation.

3.3. Idealists: have an instinct for interpersonal integration, sometimes become leaders, and often speak interpretively and metaphorically of the abstract world of their imagination.

3.4. • Rationals: tend to be organising and planning or inventing and configuring operations. They are competent and pragmatic.

4. B. McCarthy

4.1. Innovative learners: they look for personal meaning while learning, cooperate and want to make the world a better place.

4.2. Analytic learners: they want to develop intellectually while learning, they want to know " important things" and to add to the world's knowledge.

4.3. Common sense learners: they want to find solutions, they value things if they are useful, they are kinesthetic, they are practical and straightforward, they want to make things happen.

4.4. Dynamic learners: they look for hidden possibilities, judge things by gut reactions, synthesise information from different sources, and are enthusiastic and adventurous.

5. Myers-Briggs

5.1. • Introversion (I) (interest flowing mainly to the inner world of concepts and ideas);

5.2. • Extroversion (E) (interest flowing mainly to the outer world of actions, objects, and persons);

5.3. • Sensing (S) (tending to perceive immediate, real, practical facts of experience and life);

5.4. • Intuition (N) (tending to perceive possibilities, relationships, and meanings of experiences);

5.5. • Thinking (T) (tending to make judgements or decisions objectively and impersonally);

5.6. • Judging (J) (tending to act in a planned and decisive way);

5.7. • Perceiving (P) (tending to act in a spontaneous and flexible way).

6. The Reichmann-Grasha

6.1. Avoidant students tend to be at the lower end of the grade distribution.

6.2. Competitive students are described as suspicious of their peers leading to competition for rewards and recognition.

6.3. Collaborative students enjoy working in harmony with their peers.

6.4. Dependent students typically become frustrated when facing new challenges not directly addressed in the classroom.

6.5. Independent students, as the name implies, prefer to work alone and require little direction from the teacher.

7. H. Gardner's

7.1. Visual Learners. Need to see the teacher's body language and facial expression to fully understand the content of a lesson.

7.2. Auditory learners. They learn best through verbal lectures, discussions, talking things through and listening to what others have to say.

7.3. Tactile/Kinesthetic learners. They learn best through a hands-on approach, actively exploring the physical world around them.
