This week we had the opportunity to learn about learning theories. It is fascinating to learn that there are proven and scientific theories that could help and guide us in designing learning. Some people are born with extraordinary teaching skills eventhough they do not learn any teaching theory. But this condition is rare, and only a few people who are born with it. I believe that I am a person that was not born with this skill, and by having a thorough understanding about these learning theories will help me understand how our learners learn, and what particular teaching styles that work for them. Learning about learning theories can guide us in making decision in the classroom and help us when we face an instructional problem. I also learned that these theories are not always mutually exclusive, and can be used in combination based on one’s particular educational situation.
