LEAD|Turkey Partners with Performance Learning Systems to Introduce Learning Styles Evaluation System for Education

-- System Helps Teachers Increase Student Achievement Through Understanding Learning Styles

BUFFALO, New York, Nov. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- When teachers assess individual learning styles, it helps students discover how they learn best, which enables them to perform at a higher level. Educators in Turkey now have the ability to discover the learning styles of their students through the Kaleidoscope Profile®, a propriety learning styles evaluation system introduced by LEAD|Turkey, the leading provider of professional development training for educators in Turkey, and developed by Performance Learning Systems (PLS).

"Our goal in bringing the Kaleidoscope Profile to Turkey is to provide what we believe is the best learning styles evaluation system available," said JT Rehill, managing director for LEAD|Turkey. "With knowledge of the various learning styles in their classroom, educators have the power to design interactive lesson plans that will create a motivating and interesting learning environment for students."

Based on more than 80 years of research and proven effective for nearly 20 years, the Kaleidoscope Profile is one of the oldest and most widely-used learning styles inventory systems in the United States, used by more than a half-million students and educators. The system uses a color-coded rubric to categorize 12 individual learning styles and personality temperaments, including sensory, organizational and perceptual preferences.

Once learning styles are identified, teachers can use these factors to adapt learning activities to better accommodate the individual student's needs. Each student will benefit from a supportive learning environment, allowing them to feel special and achieve self-respect while gaining a better understanding of others – a foundational element in implementing differentiated instruction to reach every student.

LEAD|Turkey, in partnership with PLS, Maya School and Ozyegin University, hosted two one-day events for educators on Saturday, Nov. 17 in Istanbul, and Sunday, Nov. 18 in Ankara, in conjunction with the launch. More than 400 educators attended both events, where they received a free Kaleidoscope Profile Learning Styles report.

"Both events were a success in introducing this tool to educators," said Stephen Barkley, author, co-creator of the Kaleidoscope Profile and executive vice president of PLS. "It was great to see the positive response from attendees, who are extremely excited to have access to this system that will help them boost student achievement in their classrooms."
