As human beings we are constantly in one learning process after the other. One of the most active period of learning came during our early childhood. A child learns thousands of different concepts, impressions and words in a matter of months. To replicate that period of learning isn’t really possible. But what we can do is try to rekindle that thirst for knowledge as much as possible. If you want to learn and understand the learning process you have to be willing to buckle up and get down to business. Don’t let a single day pass you with having learnt at least one new thing of value. Learning things take time and you this is something we have to accept in order proceed.
You are different, so am I
We all learn things differently. Some people need to be more engaged when learning, others prefer theoretical work down in a basement somewhere. Keep this in mind the next time you read about the “best learning strategy”. There are numerous learning strategies and their effectiveness should be measured by taking into account more than just the method itself but also the students prepositions and the teachers way of applying that method.
Understanding how you learn
It’s not always easy to understand the best way to learn something. This is why it’s so important to try different ways and tactics. When you find the way that suits you, you can stick with it. What’s good for other people doesn’t necessarily have to be good for you.
