Every person has a learning style — it’s as individual as a signature.”

In turn, teachers have responded to this reality by offering content in various formats, even embracing their students’ use of mobile devices. They are some of the most ardent champions of research that identifies and leverages each student’s personal preferences to create better learning outcomes.
