Which learning styles do we support with e-learning?

Reflect on whether you accommodate these learning styles in your teaching practice.

Do the technologies you use help you achieve this? If so, how? Or do they hinder it?
What tools relate to the quadrants of the diagram? Does the situation change if the activity is accessed from a mobile, or done ‘in the field’?

What other types of technology works well with activities in these quadrants? For example, where do classroom clickers (mentioned in the Eric Mazur story in Week 1) belong? What about social media?
