What are your favorite education myths?
A few weeks ago I blogged about Dale’s mythical “Cone of Experience”. These sorts of things seem to hang on quite tenaciously, and sometimes even gets perpetuated by experts in the field.
The learning styles thing is another. I’m not disputing that people have preferences, but actual styles? Nope. And yet, the paper I did on learning styles ten years ago is my second most popular paper on academia.edu. Go figure.
