I agree that we can’t focus solely on learning styles in our classrooms. I think there are times to take it into account (like when I had 16 of 18 students diagnosed as ADD or ADHD - we did a LOT of kinesthetic learning that year), but I don’t think it should be a primary concern. In my opinion, the focus should be more on providing opportunities for individual one-on-one attention within the normal classroom setting. In my class, I use workshops to facilitate this. If I solely focused on learning styles, I would always be ignoring the needs of at least one group of learners, if not more. With the one-on-one/small group workshop setting, I can target the specific needs of my students without alienating a certain portion of my class.
I am interested to hear more about your workshop-style approach to teaching. I find it very interesting and would love to see how you incorporate the various learning styles into each workshop. I liked how you showed the connection between math and creativity, because when I first came across it, it did leave me scratching my head a little bit, but your explanation did a great job of making the connection.
