"When students are provided with an organizational structure in which to fit new knowledge,
they learn more effectively and efficiently
than when they are left to deduce this conceptual structure for themselves."

There are no such things as learning styles.
Different content benefits from different teaching modalities.

*Not everyone, of course, since some learners have visual impairments.
People learn better when multiple modalities are used.
Visual thinking tools help everyone.*
