  • When we are faced with a new challenge in life, we essentially have 2 options as what to do. We can learn, adapt and develop a strategy for dealing with the challenge, or we can…this is a dodo bird. Dodo birds were unable to adapt to a world with predators and as a result are now extinct. Today’s rapid pace of change means that we have to continue to develop throughout our lives just in order to survive, and we must develop even more in order to continually improve.
    So…a little more on development:
  • You have to be ready to learn. You have to be willing to learn. You need learning when it suits you.
    You need just in time learning. You need to learn how to learn.
  • For years the doctrine of neuroscientists has been that the brain is a machine: break a part and you lose that function permanently. But more and more evidence is turning up to show that the brain can rewire itself, even in the face of catastrophic trauma: essentially, the functions of the brain can be strengthened just like a weak muscle."
  • Brains learn by forming new connections
  • These experimental insights suggest that the brain works like a muscle: when depleted, it becomes less effective. Furthermore, we should take this knowledge into account when making decisions. If we've just spent lots of time focusing on a particular task, exercising self-control or even if we've just made lots of seemingly minor choices, then we probably shouldn't try to make a major decision. These deleterious carryover effects from a tired brain may have a strong shaping effect on our lives.
  • Correct nutrition, sleep, lack of stress more important then design of learning – have to be ready to learn
  • http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/03/080314085041.htm
  • permanently imprinting and creating brain maps (i.e., permanent behavior changes, knowledge permanence, automatic responses and deep, intuitive understandings) only happens when a human or animal is focused and paying close attention.
    A new study by researchers at UC Davis shows how our very short-term "working memory," which allows the brain to stitch together sensory information, operates. The system retains a limited number of high-resolution images for a few seconds, rather than a wider range of fuzzier impressions. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/04/080402212855.htm
  • Transcript

    • 1. Getting Excited About Learning
    • 2. Learners need to be prepared to learn if their learning experience is to be effective. Few trainers pay enough attention to motivation, enthusiasm and positive anticipation prior to a learning session.
    • 3. Learning is an evolutionary skill
    • 4. Learn Adapt Challenge
    • 5. We all have an innate ability to learn
    • 6. A little history on intelligence….the old view
    • 7. You’re born with what you got… and that’s that!
    • 8. ….the new view
    • 9. Your brain is a muscle
    • 10. It can grow….and will with practice
    • 11. It is continuously changing
    • 12. Your brain learns by….
    • 13. Forming connections…
    • 14. ..participating…
    • 15. ..experimenting..
    • 16. ….from mistakes
    • 17. but…
    • 18. when depleted, it becomes less effective
    • 19. controllable factors impact your ability to learn…
    • 20. Nutrition
    • 21. Sleep
    • 22. Stress
    • 23. can all be barriers to learning
    • 24. Translation…
    • 25. You need to be ready to learn…
    • 26. So…
    • 27. Be on time
    • 28. ..well rested…
    • 29. ..curious..
    • 30. &willing to explore new perspectives

    • 36. Learning helps makes you a better person
    • 37. If you let it…
    • 38. So, it’s up to you…how you learn
    • 39. Your focus determines your reality
    • 40. You control your attitude…
    • 41. Results come from hard work
    • 42. So jump in…
