  3. 3. Introduction <ul><li>Remember your roles? Being a student is one of </li></ul><ul><li>Them. This module will help you to be the best </li></ul><ul><li>student you can be. </li></ul><ul><li>We are going to look at the following: </li></ul><ul><li>Time management </li></ul><ul><li>Barriers to learning </li></ul><ul><li>Teamwork </li></ul><ul><li>Note-taking </li></ul><ul><li>Study techniques </li></ul><ul><li>Instructions </li></ul><ul><li>Exam questions </li></ul>
  4. 4. Find out where your time goes <ul><li>Think of a typical weekday in your life. </li></ul><ul><li>Think of your “after-college” time until 20h00 each evening. </li></ul><ul><li>Write down how many hours you spend on these or other activities </li></ul>
  5. 5. Find out where your time goes In the second column marked “code”, classify the activities. N = Necessary for achieving my goals Nt = Neutral to be done R = Relaxation activities
  6. 6. Find out where your time goes <ul><li>Add up the total hours in the last </li></ul><ul><li>Column. Are you spending most of </li></ul><ul><li>your time on necessary, neutral or </li></ul><ul><li>relaxation activities? </li></ul>
  7. 7. Use Planners <ul><li>Using a semester planner, write down dates for tests, exams, </li></ul><ul><li>and assignments as they become available. Also fill in </li></ul><ul><li>birthdays and other social events you know may be coming </li></ul><ul><li>up. If you a sports players, fill in match dates. </li></ul><ul><li>Now draw up a weekly schedule. </li></ul><ul><li>Transfer the important dates from the semester planner to the weekly planner. </li></ul><ul><li>Fill in your study times – if there is a test, plan study time accordingly. </li></ul><ul><li>Fill in other activities. </li></ul><ul><li>Put the planner up where you can see it clearly. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Use Planners <ul><li>Finally you need a diary in which to write your daily “to do” </li></ul><ul><li>list. These are your very short-term goals taken from your </li></ul><ul><li>weekly planner for that particular day. Carry your diary </li></ul><ul><li>with you to remind yourself of what needs to be done. Every </li></ul><ul><li>weekend draw up your schedule for the next week. Paste </li></ul><ul><li>your weekly planner up where you can see it clearly. </li></ul><ul><li>Most importantly – stick to your plan as much as you can! </li></ul>
  9. 9. Use Planners <ul><li>Finally you need a diary in which to write your daily “to do” </li></ul><ul><li>list. These are your very short-term goals taken from your </li></ul><ul><li>weekly planner for that particular day. Carry your diary </li></ul><ul><li>with you to remind yourself of what needs to be done. Every </li></ul><ul><li>weekend draw up your schedule for the next week. Paste </li></ul><ul><li>your weekly planner up where you can see it clearly. </li></ul><ul><li>Most importantly – stick to your plan as much as you can! </li></ul>
  10. 10. Barriers to learning <ul><li>Class Discussion: </li></ul><ul><li>What are the barriers to your studying after college? </li></ul><ul><li>What are the barriers to your learning properly at college? </li></ul><ul><li>What can you do to overcome these barriers? </li></ul>
  11. 11. Barriers to learning <ul><li>Methods to overcome barriers to learning: </li></ul><ul><li>Teamwork. Working in teams can often help to remove some of our barriers to learning. Because we are not taking full responsibility for the whole task, but only for our part of the task, we are less stressed (psychological/emotional barrier). </li></ul><ul><li>Note-taking. It is a good idea to take notes in class. Even though you might have a textbook, taking notes helps you focus your attention. Try it and see! </li></ul><ul><li>Try not to get too stressed out. Stress is a huge barrier to learning. Try to reduce the amount of stress in your life. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Study techniques <ul><li>Acronyms for words in a sequence: SQRRR </li></ul><ul><li>Acronyms for words which do not have to be in a sequence </li></ul><ul><li>Acrostics: Use letters or parts of a word to make a sentence to remember, e.g. The first letters of these important South African rivers: Limpopo, Gariep, Vaal, Tugela = LGVT = Limpho Grabs Volleyball Trophy </li></ul><ul><li>Rhymes: Make a rhyme of important information to help you remember, e.g. this spelling rule: </li></ul><ul><li>i before e </li></ul><ul><li>except after c </li></ul><ul><li>and when sounded like “a” </li></ul><ul><li>as in neighbour and weigh </li></ul><ul><li>Visualise: Associate a fact with a picture in your mind, e.g. if you have five facts to remember, put them mentally into a picture of a hand – one fact per finger. </li></ul>
  13. 13. SQRRR <ul><li>When studying your core subjects for a test or exam, use </li></ul><ul><li>the following tried and tested system: </li></ul>
  14. 14. SQRRR <ul><li>Survey (scan and skim) </li></ul><ul><li>Flip through your textbook allowing your eye to pass over </li></ul><ul><li>the text without focusing on details. You only need to </li></ul><ul><li>“ catch” keywords here and there. Headings, sub-headings, </li></ul><ul><li>drawings, maps, pictures and diagrams will help you to get </li></ul><ul><li>the general idea. </li></ul><ul><li>Question the text </li></ul><ul><li>Thanks to the survey you will now be able to ask questions like: </li></ul><ul><li>What are the 5 reading strategies? </li></ul><ul><li>What does SMART stand for? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the definition of a goal? </li></ul>
  15. 15. SQRRR <ul><li>Read </li></ul><ul><li>Read the text carefully, finding and noting down the </li></ul><ul><li>answers to your questions. </li></ul><ul><li>Recall </li></ul><ul><li>Close the book and try to remember whatever you can about </li></ul><ul><li>the topic. Jot down notes. </li></ul><ul><li>Review </li></ul><ul><li>If you get stuck, open your book again and review the </li></ul><ul><li>content by skimming through it again. Also skim through </li></ul><ul><li>your summary. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Instructions <ul><li>Being able to follow instructions is a very important skill for </li></ul><ul><li>learners. We must apply it in theory exam papers and in the </li></ul><ul><li>practical learning environment. We are going to look at the </li></ul><ul><li>skills involved in producing and following accurate </li></ul><ul><li>instructions. </li></ul><ul><li>Be specific </li></ul><ul><li>Articulate spoken instructions clearly </li></ul><ul><li>Use illustrations </li></ul><ul><li>Use a logical order </li></ul>
