How we learn...
and why we don't!

Dr. Lois Breur Krause

We have known for a long time that there are differences in how individual people learn. But just knowing that differences exist doesn't mean we can describe what those differences are.

In order to understand things better, we often make a model. A model rocket shows wings, fuselage, and engines in a way that allows us to develop an understanding of what it is and how it works.

A model of learning

In my research I have found that when a student finds the right way to study for the way they learn, it can produce a dramatic change in grades, attitude, and self image. Recognizing what it is that makes us who we are, with valid educational needs and differences, the Cognitive Profile Model can be a life-saver!
