Learning how to learn

  1. 1. Learning How To Learn A guide for the novice and the professional -Manuj Kushwaha
  2. 2. Introduction Most of us are constantly worried when starting to learn a new thing be it a chapter of mathematics we are not familiar with or learning how to drive.We always try to focus on learning the new task but never quite focus on the process but are more interested in the product or the end result.This presentation would help you to understand the basic process of learning.
  3. 3. Focused Vs Diffused Mode Of Learning Focussed Mode * Concentrating on the task at hand. *Giving it continued and undivided attention for a specified amount of time. Diffused Mode *Taking a break or doing a routine task . * Doing so let's the brain strengthen the neural pathways of what you just learnt.
  4. 4. Procrastination * It is the habit of leaving work for tomorrow. * It is mainly due to illusions of competence that we can do the task at the last minute. * Our habits force our brain to cause a sensation of pain or unpleasantness at the sight of work.
  5. 5. Procrastination Roundup * It is the cue on which we have to act to avoid procrastination. *A controlled procrastination is useful as it helps in spaced repetition which allows the brain to strengthen neural pathways to fetch the required information.
  6. 6. Pomodoro Technique * This technique involves the use of a twenty five minute timer for focused study. * After the time is up take some rest or reward yourself. * The small sessions of intense learning and the reward thereafter help those who have a habit of procrastinating.
  7. 7. Einstellung * It refers to the condition when we are stuck on a problem because our current path is preventing us from from thinking from a different point of view. * In these cases it is better to take a step back and look at the big picture and think afresh.
  8. 8. Process Vs Product * When we think about the end result(product) like finishing a homework there is a greater chance of procrastinating as our mind reasons that it could be completed later. * We must therefore focus on the process ie. Studying which gives our mind zombies a task to focus on.
  9. 9. Conclusion Learning how to learn is as important as learning itself. By taking advantage of the current research on neuroscience we can learn more efficiently while having a basic understanding of how our brain works.
