I agree that linguistic and logical-mathematical types of teaching are an essential part of the learning process. Of course, traditional teaching methods, including textbook reading and lecture notes writing, may seem rather boring or outdated. However, linguistic and logical-mathematical skills create the basis for further learning and investigation of other subjects. Any learning process requires an organized environment at least to a small degree.
The ability to organize one’s time and efforts can be developed effectively through the two mentioned ways of learning. The logical-mathematical method allows achieving a sufficient level of problem-solving skills and the ability to analyze material. As for the linguistic type, it helps to develop a good memory and the ability to understand more quickly the information a student read or heard. However, all this does not mean that learning and teaching processes should be restricted only by these two types.
Allowing students to be more active participants of the studying process, non-traditional methods can be helpful for the development of specific skills. These methods may include computer technologies, animation, and interactions with people and nature. Non-traditional types of learning can help students to develop creative thinking and not to get confused when they meet tasks without certain structure or rules.
In addition, it allows students not to lose interest in studying, as non-traditional methods are usually more fun for them and provide a better connection with material. Thus, I agree that teachers should move towards more creative ways of learning for students. In my opinion, the best option should represent a mixture of traditional and non-traditional styles. It is essential to develop linguistic and logical-mathematical skills but creative ways, in turn, help to push the boundaries of thinking.
