In psychology, learning is defined as any relatively permanent change in behavior that occurs in a person’s life as a result of information he receives or experiences he has. In reality however, two major forms of learning can be identified - Informational Learning and Transformational Learning.
Informational learning provides learners with facts, qualifications and public validation. However, it may not bring about permanent changes in the attitudes and behavior of learners. Transformational learning, on the other hand, brings about complete and perceptible changes in the learners’ understanding and behavior. Through transformational learning, learners are able to use the information gathered at the learning stage to solve practical life problems. Effective learning takes place when students experience both informational and transformational learning.
Effective learning can only be achieved under the following conditions:
(1)When students are thirsty for knowledge and excited about what they learn.
(2)When all the learners are encouraged and assisted to learn in the ways in which they prefer to learn.
(3)When teachers use creative and transformational learning techniques to pass across information and skills to students, while taking into consideration their individual learning preferences.
Learners Difference Teaching Techniques (LDTT) is a modern technique of achieving effective learning among students. It provides the information and skills that teachers need to utilize their creative intelligence and develop learner-oriented lessons. LDTT benefits students by significantly increasing their understanding of the subject matter, as well as examination pass-rates. For teachers, it removes the stress, drudgery and routine often associated with the teaching profession.
