Translated title of the contribution: Background on Learning Styles for Virtual Environments

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Introduction: in the context of virtual education, research is needed on the learning styles of each student, which offers them personalized options for their learning process. This project seeks to integrate learning styles to virtual education. For this, it is proposed to incorporate an adaptive component to the learning management tool to facilitate the personalization of content based on variables such as rhythm, style, and student needs. Objective: to develop new functionalities for a Problem Based Learning management tool incorporating an adaptive component that enhances collaboration in virtual courses at the university level. Materials and methods: the method was abductive, divided into three phases: theoretical appropriation, structuring of the proposal, and validation. In addition, there is a transversal phase called Knowledge Transfer and Project Management. To date, the project is in the validation phase. Results: the most important theoretical background in relation to learning styles seen from the history of pedagogy will be presented but recognizing that for the present the question about learning is no longer an exclusive object of study of pedagogy, since said object It is also part of the psychological theories that deal with cognitive processes, as is the case with David Kolb’s theory. Conclusions: at this time, they would be very hasty, since the third phase of the project has not been completed. This writing is in phase one: theoretical appropriation.
