Your Mind: be in a resourceful state of mind - being relaxed,
confident, and motivated. Having the right attitude towards learning
The most important factors in learning are: Motivation, motivation, motivation.
2. Acquiring the Information: absorb the basic facts in the best way that suits your sensory learning preferences.
3. Searching Out the Meaning: long-term memory requires that you search out implications and significance - the full meaning - understanding as oppose to knowing - for example, you may know the date of the US Independence, but understand why Independence was important to America is searching for meaning.
4. Trigger the Memory: Learning Strategies for Memory - develop techniques to help improve your memory - e.g. visual learning maps
What You Know: Rehearse to self and others - teach / tutor - if you
can teach it, you're really showing that you fully comprehend
on How You've Learned: Not upon what you learned, but how you
learned it. What lessons can you draw for the next time? -
