Learning time is not always fun. Most students don’t like to learn. They just want to “know” enough to pass the test. In many cases they also confuse reading, it seems that only reading material is what they need to learn information. However, research converts data into correlations, which takes time. However, regardless of age, any student in a school, public, private, or home school can learn more effective learning methods by memorizing some healthy learning skills.
Schedule study time.
This means turning off the TV or cell phone and not trying to spend your study time on other events that are more important to you. Research the first appointment you made and proceed as planned. Arrange for a short period, such as a 30-minute period, and pay full attention to the material during this period. Time is up, take a break and refresh yourself. Schedule multiple time periods, alternating rest periods as needed. During recess, you can text your friends, check emails, or watch that movie, but you have to learn first.
Make sure you are committed to learning important things while studying.
Don’t let your thoughts turn to other things. If you deliberately try to learn something and deliberately seek its meaning in what you learn, you will find it. Learning starts this way. You need to make sure it is worth it to you. No one can teach it for you – you have to be sure this is important.
Organize your information before you start learning.
If you constantly have to get up to pass other papers or books, you are wasting all your planned study time. Some students do this consciously to avoid studying and working. Before you sit down to study, make sure you have the books, notes, handouts, pens, white paper, and computer tools you need to study the topic. Once you have everything in one place you can start learning
Ask questions as you review notes and textbooks.
One of the best ways to learn is to ask yourself a question while studying. This creates a natural “response” mindset in which your brain searches for the correct answer. It’s like a game. If you only watch someone’s game, or just read the information, then you are just a spectator. If you keep your brain alert by asking questions about the material, you become a participant in the game. This makes the content you are researching very interactive and therefore more meaningful. Good questions to ask include, “Why is it so important?” “What does this remind me of?” “Is this changing?” “How will this affect me?”
Remember all these techniques are in one way or another related to your mental state. By giving yourself time, motivation, preparation, and interest in what you learn, the material turns from mere data into relevance. This is what makes learning so much easier, and of course, it can also improve efficiency.
