Learning Styles

 

 

The intent of AINE’s Learning Styles Center is to positively and significantly impact the educational experience of students in Alaska schools by promoting classroom environments and educators that respond to diverse learning styles. The Learning Style Center provides professional development opportunities and resources for educators utilizing the Dunn and Dunn Model of Learning Styles.

 

Learning style is the way each person begins to concentrate on, process, internalize and retain new information.

 

Using the Dunn and Dunn model of learning styles, the AINE Learning Styles Center will offer the following professional development opportunties to Interior school districts between 2007 and 2009:

 

  • Basic Cognitive Learning Styles Summer Institute

  • Advanced Learning Styles classroom implementation support during school year
