This work was carried out with the interest of identifying learning styles based on the brain quadrant model to improve teaching. Current pedagogical orientations show a growing interest in teaching strategies, which circumvent traditional models, benefiting learning effectively and innovatively. The brain quadrant model helps guide people's personal and professional roles based on existing Sperry models (left and right hemisphere) and the McLean model (cortical and limbic brain). Herrmann crossed these two models to find the source of personal creativity based on the dominance of one or the other quadrant in each person so that they can recognize what would be the effective way to improve teaching. Through explanatory inquiry, cognitive innovation developed in teaching and honing cognitive, affective-social psychomotor skills to achieve different styles of learning and applicability is evaluated in content in daily life.
