5 Bits of Advice About:  Avoiding EduMyths

  1. Just because they told you it was true when your were training, it doesn’t mean that it is. Training colleges perpetuate all sorts of EduMyths.
  2. Learning styles and brain gym are just the most *well known* examples of EduMyths.
  3. A scientific theory is something that has been rigorously tested by experiment. An education theory is often just what someone reckons.
  4. If you challenge EduMyths then be prepared for people going on about ‘ontology’, ‘post-structuralism’ and stuff like that. This can mostly be disregarded.
  5. Read a myth-busting blog like mine!
