Study Skills for ALL Types of Learning Abilities With Coach Evie™
Education builds a treasure chest for the individual. Its power lies in the mind throughout one’s lifetime. It provides the brain with the ability to convert words, ideas, and new information into effective problem-solving actions. Education through life acts as a continuing series of booster shots. (Ron Kotulak, Inside the Brain)
Factors Influencing Learning novelty, meaningful, relevance, tied to emotions, connected to environmental factors (stress & fear= negative impact). Information that affects survival or generates emotion is processed ahead of information for new learning.
Remember, a real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided. Anthony Robbins
NLP™ was developed primarily by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, among others. They studied the natural thought processes of exceptional achievers, and mapped out how those achievers got such amazing results. The result of their research is an extensive and ever-growing methodology for achieving phenomenal results in any area of life, both personally and professionally!
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is based upon volumes of research into the highly effective methods of Milton Erickson, Fritz Perls, and other persons highly skilled in working with the psychological issues of their clients. Functional models were created for the methods used by these successful people. Neuro-Linguistic Programming is the sum of these techniques.
I would have you remember a time when you felt totally motivated, and I would elicit your strategies for feeling motivated.
If you're a primarily visual person (i.e., you see clear pictures in your mind when you think), you might feel motivated when you see something you want in clear detail, up close to your face, and in full, rich color. After you see something you want in such vivid detail, you might hear a loud voice in your head encouraging you to get going. Finally, you might see another image of you getting the specific result you wanted followed by a gut-level feeling of a job well done.
During a learning session, we remember BEST the information that comes FIRST (principle of primacy). We remember SECOND BEST the information that comes LAST (principle of recency), and LEAST the information that comes in the middle. Important not to allow prime learning time to become contaminated with less important information.
Retention : No long term retention without rehearsal. Varies with length of time of the learning session. When anxiety is high, retention will decrease. Content should be repeated in different formats 6-9 times in order to maximize retention.
