Abstract
This paper mainly deals with the implementation of learning styles in the learning process to learn in different ways and their preferences in using different teaching resources as well. Laerning style is an individuals’ natural or habitual pattern of acquiring and processing information in learning situations. In order to succeed in tomorrows’ world/future the teachers should make the learners in need to critically evaluate, synthesize the volumes of information ascertained, response given creatively and innovatively in order to solve problems collaboratively and independently in the environment of participatory culture, with multiplying and increasingly competitive demands. Today the classroom is alive with the excitement of new learning methodologies. The important role of learning styles would be to increase self-awareness of the individual strengths and weakness of the students during the learning process. We should agree on the fact that learning materials should not just reflect the teachers’ style, but should be designed for all kinds of students and all kinds of learning styles. Students are able to learn and to efficiently improve their learning process with different methods. We humans have different ways of learning which can assimilate in a better way the knowledge received visually, kinaesthetically or through a certain sense. Thus the understanding of both students learning preferences and one’s own teaching style gives us the chance to enhance.
