The Agenda Page 2 Overview This package is a combination of six cassette tapes along with a workbook and other handouts. According to Rose and Tracy, intelligence is not fixed, it is like a muscle that can be developed, and learning how to learn is the key.
The authors cite several examples where corporations have successfully used these techniques to improve their employees learning capacity. For example, one major telephone company cut their training in half with some of the accelerated learning techniques described in this package. Key ideas All information enters the brain through one of the five senses.
It is best to use all three if possible multi -sensory learning. For example you could read the learning material out loud auditory , view graphic images related to the topic visual and feel actual samples of a related item kinesthetic. Professor Howard Gardner of Harvard has identified seven intelligences, or aptitudes.
Unfortunately, traditional education only uses a few of the. Gardner recommends using at least two to three of them whenever possible to maximize learning. Effective reading Each time you read, use a different color highlighter to go over the main ideas.
Add question marks, exclamation points and other markers to help you process the information easier. Occasionally try reading the material dramatically to help remember it or summarize it out loud in your own words.
Think about the material just before bed to help your subconscious act on it while you sleep. Write key ideas on post-it notes and lay them out in order, or devise some other way of recording the key ideas. Paraphrase any notes in your own words - this requires more concentration and www. Use of a buddy system - get a partner and discuss, debate and defend the material from various points of view. Get the big picture first - think about what will you be able to do differently when you learn this material?
How will you benefit? Browse the material - read the author's bio, write out what you already know about the subject. What would you like to learn more about? Do you have any other questions? Make a mind map diagram of the key points. Write the main idea in the center of the diagram and connect all of the related concepts. Review the notes several times - within 24 hours, again within a week, again within a month. Apply the material on a daily basis if possible. Test, practice and use the material in your everyday activities.
Mental rehearsal - build a full and detailed picture of yourself performing the skill. Use of role play with another person to "lock in" the skills.
Use the material independently and away from the learning site to make sure that you have mastered it. Use a learning log - keep a record of keywords, thoughts about the learning process, etc. Realize that success often comes when you are able to move beyond your comfort zone. Speed reading techniques One rapid reading technique is to read several words together in a group instead of each word individually.
Start reading two to three words from the edge since your peripheral vision will pick up the additional words. Sweep with your hand across and down the page at a steady speed, use a pencil to keep your place. Scan read the first chapter in three minutes to find the main ideas and decide if the material is really relevant to your needs. If so, continue skim reading the book for about 15 seconds per page and mark the main ideas and questions.
Get an overview of the author, table of contents, structure, etc. Write down what you already know about this topic before you start reading. Set up questions for yourself - what are the main ideas? What is the supporting evidence? Are the facts up to date? What's new about this? What can I really use? Memory skills Realize that it is possible for an average person to memorize incredible amounts of information.
A guy with an average intelligence and IQ was able to memorize an entire page of the Los Angeles phone book. Eventually he memorized the entire white pages and could match names with numbers and vice versa. Information needs to be repeated or used to transfer it from short -term to long - term memory.
Practice the ability to form associations between new and old data. For example - if you meet a Robert, try to match part of his appearance to another Robert that you already know.
Use frequent beginnings and endings to your learning sessions ideally with many short sessions since people generally remember the most from the beginning and ending of a presentation or study session. Think about how you would present this information to a group. How would you write up this material for a handout to give to students? How would you write an article with this material, using a new viewpoint?
How would you reorganize this material for best results or impact? Try to link items to funny and unusual things. Add action if possible - seeing the item you are trying to memorize flying through space, etc. Review the material frequently after you have learned it: once again within 24 hours, again within a week, and again within a month.
Certain types of music classical helps you relax while learning and may actually help retention of the material. Memory flashing - take notes and try to re -create them from memory.
Compare your attempts with the original notes and try again if necessary. Make a determined decision to remember. Use mind map diagrams of the material. Compress the material into keyword chunks so that eventually one word will trigger off the memory of the whole paragraph. Over learning - go beyond the basics so you have a surplus of material to compensate for any loss of memory. Additional notes from the book: Calm your mind before learning with the use of deep breathing, classical music, stretching, shaking off tension, etc.
Organize the study area with inspiring quotes, photos or drawings of the rewards of learning, etc. Critical success factor - focusing on the most valuable subjects first - fundamental core skills. This is mentioned more below in the section on effective reading.
Bring as much interest and enthusiasm as possible to the learning experience. Develop clear and intense goals. Verbalize, visualize and emotionalize your learning goal as if they were already accomplished. Use affirmations to help focus on the learning experience. They should be positive, personal and present -tense. Examples: "I learn any subject easily," "My job is more secure with my expanded learning capacity. For example, you might read it out loud while thinking of practical applications.
Get the big picture first - what will you be able to do differently with this new material? How will you benefit by learning this new material? Auditory learning - these learners benefit from reading out loud, by telling someone what they just experienced, by remembering jingles and rhymes, by listening to audio cassettes, etc.
Ask learners to paraphrase what they have just learned into a tape recorder. Interview - ask learners to interview people in the organization about some aspect of what they are learning about.
Have the learners create mnemonics such as raps, poems, word associations, etc. Most information was transmitted to generation to generation auditorially before the Gutenberg press. When we make our own sounds, several significant areas of our cerebrum are activated. Images are easier to hang onto than words.
Here are some ideas: Course map - provide people with a pictorial map of the course to give them the "big picture. Picture language - use language rich in analogy, metaphor, and imagery to describe concepts, terms and processes.
Real world observations - ask learners to go and observe how something is done outside the classroom. They have them type their observations into the computer or record in verbal or pictorial form. Icon job aids - provide learners with icon job aids or have them create their own.
