Reply Jasher Mojo says: June 28, 2019 at 2:17 pm The end is a big egalitarian lie. How are you going to get someone with a crisp memory to even remember all of the pictorial images. If they can't remember some thing as simple as 4 calories per gram of carbohydrate chances are they won't remember the whole car has four wheels image. Memorization, conceptualizing, and applying knowledge is for the most part an aptitude or a biological endowment. Try tutoring nursing students and I've proven my point.

At 4:10 minutes, onward: This would be a good point in the video for my boss and all corporate bosses! If this were so, how would the workplace survive, how would the workers survive, especially being pounded by on-the-job training, meetings, maintenance, studying, keeping abreast of the ever-changing innovations and systems, while improving and advancing? As you would probably conclude, I hadn't watched the whole video as yet, but, still, somehow, I am struggling with the veracity of this. Reply Andrew C says: July 2, 2019 at 4:58 pm I've been practising them all my adult life. i was fortunate to be passed on one or two ideas at school, e.g. the one about the time you can concentrate for. Others I have picked up via observation. Once you think to yourself, there are likely to be practices where one can optimise learning, then you are almost there. You just need the scientific approach and pay attention to what is going on in reality, not what you are being told or what you should copy in other's practices, most of which I saw to be badly wrong. Sleep was the one I was most adamant about. No one dare interrupt my sleep. You brain is going though a natural cycle, so alarm clocks make you stupid. I was always told i was wrong, but using what I knew to work I achieved some remarkable results. I've used these ideas in how to understand 170 000 lines of computer code in one go. Unless you practice certain techniques your mind can not conceptualise it, so this kind of work really did draw on psychology, just to get the job done. One works with it as if they think they are in rooms in a building. It's employing our understanding of spacial relationships. By the way, one point in the presentation i was a little confused about is the divide between recognition and remembering. Stimulated recall seems to recover much more memory than non-stimulated recall. In computing we can think of it as an addressing error. You need to know where the information is stored, but with bits of info dropping out you can reconstruct a memory. I would guard against drawing a false dichotomy here. I know it is a populist thing to reduce everything to binary divisions, but it's leading to error. No i can't remember what is on the next page of a book where I recognise the page before because that particular fact, that it is on page 243 and not page 194 is forgotten for our benefit. Filtering out the rubbish is an optimisation technique. So that's good – brain working there. You will find though that once you have started to read the next page, you are near to the correct address where the memory was stored, but you will get to it conceptually. I've actually tried it myself, as i have a whole load of old electronics mags going back to 1975. Re-reading them is like getting back other things, not in the mags, like whatI was doing at school at the time I was reading them. I do concur though when you say, with revision, recognition of those lines can be like skipping the meaning of them. Besides the ones you've underlined is what you already understand! So better approach would be read until it bores you. You mind will let you know how much nutrition it is getting from the text. Perhaps it's better to read the subject again by a different author. See it from a different angle in the revision. Reply Steven Smith says: July 3, 2019 at 12:49 am Want class was this lecture for?

Great way to learn because you know someone will have a question and the interaction is worth it's weight in gold. Reinforce what you learned by sharing it with others in your own words.

Reply Feralz says: July 19, 2019 at 5:46 pm I was very lucky that my university had a very good Psychology department. not only did I learn about psychology, but the concepts we went through in class helped me to learn the things we were trying to learn. Some people are less fortunate. This professor summed up most of those things. We were all trying to learn the wrong way. Wish everyone knew this as early as high school, but then again, high school was designed for rote learning, Universities are another thing.

It should bet taught age-appropriately beginning in Grammar School.I always used to say I had to learn how to learn. I had a little help from my 4th-grade teacher who every day made us write the entire chapter we were studying and then find the single most important sentence in each paragraph. This is similar to what Professor Lobdell recommended. When studying I outlined everything I believed important and pretended I was teaching a class using my outline. These 2 things served me well, but with all of the suggestions discussed in this lesson, it would have been easier.

And. You can't trust other people's answers a lot of the times. It's better to clarify yourself. The time you spend to fact check other people's answers is much longer than getting the answer yourself. Reply Ms Taylor says: July 27, 2019 at 5:47 am I used to take very simple notes and repeat the entire class afterwards to others. Never reviewed the notes once. Then again the person giving the class was shocked and asked to see my notes. She was like um this is not even human language. I was like um this is how I take notes. Reply Jyoeru Zaberu says: July 27, 2019 at 12:09 pm It's odd. I did the "teach" thing for my whole life to study. I never had anyone to participate with, and so I would just participate with something imaginary. And I used that in my elementary education. So much, I thought I might one day be a teacher. And now I do it years and years later. I was taking Japanese my last year of college (and I was 30-something by then). And the first thing they throw at you is this 100-letter alphabet. And then a ton of other stuff. But what did I do to choke this down? I went to the store and got one of those dry erase sticker boards–the kind that peel off the wall. And I put that sucker in my study area. And I then taught an imaginary audience what I had learned on the board. I would ONLY do this when no one else was around or in a position to watch me. And I knew no one was really there. In my mind, I was still thinking I might have to teach this back one day. So how do I get there now? I teach myself. And I aced much of that early part of Japanese. But I over-loaded myself everywhere else that I lost the routine. Another thing that really helped was when I was taking a real history class. I had to remember hundreds of facts and concepts for any given test. And I made a 97 in that class. I aced every single test. And all I did for that was take a spreadsheet, make a column of words, one for acronyms, one for summary of fact, and one for detailed fact, and finally one for dates/years (the event took place). I would first type the detailed note or fact. Then I would summarize that to as few words as I could. Then I would put the date. Then I would try to find a specific word that themed the sentiment (like if we're talking about how Napoleon quelled the rebellion, he gunned em down with a little whift of grapeshot, so grapeshot would be my word). Then I would look for any acronym I could figure for the situation. When I would study, I would read the word and try to remember any specific detail about it. I would then go on to the acronym if I needed to. Then I would go to the very abbreviated recollection of the event. Then finally the whole typed note. I would stop the moment I could regurgitate the details of the initial note that I started with. I then programmed my spreadsheet to treat the words column like a flash card and go through the fact words 100% randomly, only comparing when I knew I did not know the answer. And I learned so much in that tiresome semester that a few general concepts, overarching the detail, were what I learned very well. So now I take those huge concepts and apply them to other history-making issues and let history help inform my decisions or outlook on something. My favorite for this is always the French Revolution. I can compare that series of events to so many things, it's ridiculous. I imagine my understanding of that would help me easily ace a string of sociology classes.

Reply Michelle w. says: August 2, 2019 at 7:25 pm I got top grades by following those rules:#1 Marker a text paragraph with as few words as possible that connects each thought as a whole sentence. So rereading a whole chapter is already summarised by hard & well chosen meaningful content.#2 Learn for 35 min. markering new text + make 5 to 10 min. breaks with closed eyes#3 Change the subject to another brain area. Example: english, math, then french to get the most contrast in your study#4 Summarise a book chapter with one pictogramm. Do that for the following chapters too. Summarise the book in a bigger picture. In the exam you envision the bigger pictogram & all the learned information unfolds itself. Its like tipping the first domino stone.#5 Follow a exam routine: Get an overview of each question by underlining the values you have & the ones in question different. Sort each question from easy to hard & quick thought to write your estimated time to solve each question. Start with the easy one first: just to begin with confident. Have a watch near by you.By the end you conquer the harder ones. You got great time management, left plenty of time. Solved the many questions with confident. Your in the flow: So the harder ones are left & you solve those with your built confident by now. Thats the routine to survive 6 exams in 3 days about several subjects. Hope that helps someone, too.
