Stephen Downes

Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is some discussion and a set of "resources to design for neurodiversity and cognitive disabilities (dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and autism) from WCAG guidelines to real-world expertise and practical tips." It's good stuff. But I can't help myself - can we draw a line between neurodiversity and learning styles? If you say learning styles don't exist, are you also saying neurodiversity doesn 't exist? But - manifestly, neurodiversity does exist. So what's the advice from learning styles sceptics - just ignore it then? So many writers take is as done and proven that 'there are no learning styles', but I honestly don't know what that means in practice (except maybe don't use Myers-Briggs tests any more).
