Super MRT (Memory-Reading-Thinking) Talk

6,953 views

Published on

In this Interactive Talk (90 min) to EPF (Employees Provident Fund) staff, we will explore various technology and non-technology techniques to stimulate and empower the brain and senses to be more focused, remember faster, speed read, and think more creatively. In the process, we will discuss how the brain learns, and how we can apply various focus and memorization techniques to improve our ability to remember through visualization, association and imagination. Then, we will learn how to apply the SQ3R method to enhance our reading skills, and various techniques to improve our reading speed.

  64. SPEED READING TIPS you must NEVER FORGET!
  65. Focus on Speed First!1 Your comprehension level will improve as you PRACTICE! Focus on increasing your reading speed first. Don’t worry if your comprehension level becomes lower, as you speed read at this stage. The comprehension level will improve as you practice.
  66. Use a Guide!2 PenFinger(s) Paper Regression and the duration of fixations can be minimized by using a guide. Keep your eye fixation above the tip of the guide used (dot on a paper). The guide should be used to maintain or increase the reading speed.
  67. Minimize Regression!3 To improve reading speed you must resist regression. When you force yourself to NOT jump back, you will increasingly become more focused. Whatever important that you missed or don’t understand early on is usually repeated again or understood later. So, don’t worry! Image (Reading speeds): http://www.noahlaith.com/7-benefits-speed-reading/ Reducing regression tips: http://bit.ly/1qbyHPD
  68. Increase Vision Span!4 Increase your vision span by processing more words in an eye fixation. Start with 2 words, and then increase as you practice (5 words, one line, one paragraph, etc.). Also, reduce the time for each fixation point as you practice (1 to 0.5 to 0.25 seconds). Image (Reading speeds): http://www.noahlaith.com/7-benefits-speed-reading/
  69. Smart Eye Movement!5 http://fourhourworkweek.com/2009/07/30/speed-reading-and-accelerated-learning/ Start speed reading with 1 word in from the first and last word of each line, and end 1 word in from the last word. Then try 2,3, 4 words, etc. As your peripheral vision improves, you will accelerate your reading speed significantly by smartly reducing the time for eye movement.
  70. Stop/Reduce/Distract…6 Stop reading aloud and reduce internal speech, as it usually limits your reading speed to 150 – 250 WPM. You can distract your internal speech by repeating a particular phrase, word or number(s). Example: Saying ‘1,2,1,2’ while speed reading to distract the internal voice.

  74. DISNEY METHOD
  75. "If you can dream it, you can do it." - Walt Disney
  76. THE DREAMER  What are you trying to make or achieve?  What excites and inspires you about it?  If you could wave a magic wand and do anything you like – what would you create? How would it look? What could you do with it? How would that make you feel? THE REALIST  What resources do you need to make this happen – people, money, materials and technology?  What’s your plan?  What obstacles will you face? How will you get round them? THE CRITIC/SPOILER At critical stages of the project, step back from your work and ask yourself:  How does this look? What about the big picture? And the fine detail? How do I feel when I examine it?  How would it look to a customer? A user? A member of the audience? The client? An expert in this field?  Is this the best I/we can do? What would make it better? The Disney Method Article: http://lateralaction.com/articles/walt-disney/Diagram: http://fairlanguages.com/why-we-need-strategies-for-creativity/

Use Different Spaces for Different Thinking… Source: http://www.slideshare.net/frankcalberg/brainstorming-the-disney-method …Moving from one room to another using spaces specifically for each stage. Rooms Focus Dreamer We develop ideas. Realist We make a plan to make the idea happen. Spoiler/ Critic We think about what can go wrong.

  79. 6 THINKING HATS
  80. “The six thinking hats is a method for doing one sort of thinking at a time.” - Edward de Bono
  81. Creative Positive Objective Feelings Negative Process
  82. Benefits of Using 6 Thinking Hats  Role-playing (Put the hat on, take the hat off, switch hats, and signal your thinking)  Encourage creative, parallel and lateral thinking  Improve communication  Speed up decision making  Avoid debate  Detaching the Ego  Occasional Use (Single Hat)  Sequence Use
  83. White Hat - Objective Facts, Figures, Data and Information Questions:  What information do we have here?  What information is missing?  What information would we like to have?  How are we going to get the information?
  84. Yellow Hat - Positive Benefits, Feasibility and Optimism Questions:  Why is this worth doing?  What are the benefits?  Why can it be done?  Why will it work?
  85. Black Hat - Negative Caution, Difficulty, Judgment and Assessment Questions:  Is this true?  Will it work?  What are the weaknesses?  What is wrong with it? Critical Thinking Hat!
  86. Green Hat - Creative Creative Ideas, Alternatives, Suggestions, and Proposals Questions:  Are there any additional alternatives?  Could we do this in a different way?  Could there be another explanation?  What are some possible solutions and courses of action? Creative Thinking Hat!
  87. Red Hat – Feelings Feelings, Intuition, Emotions and Hunches No need to justify the feelings. How do I feel about this right now? Examples:  My gut-feeling is that this will not work.  I don't like the way this is being done.  This proposal is terrible.  My intuition tells me that prices will fall soon.
  88. Blue Hat - Process Sums up what is learned. Organization of thinking. Thinking about the thinking process (Reflection). Examples:  Set the agenda.  Suggest the next steps.  Ask for other hats.  Ask for summaries, conclusions, and decisions. Meta-Cognition Hat!
  89. Sequence Use – Seeking an Idea White Gather available information. Green Explore and generate alternatives. Yellow Assess the benefits and feasibility of each alternative. Black Assess the weaknesses of each alternative. Green Further develop the most promising alternatives and make a choice. Blue Summarize and assess what has been achieved so far. Black Make the final judgment on the chosen alternative. Red Find out the feelings on the outcome.
  90. Sequence Use – Reacting to a Presented Idea Red Find out the existing feelings about the idea. Yellow Find out the benefits in the idea. Black Point out the weaknesses, problems and dangers in the idea. Green See if the idea can be modified to strengthen the yellow- hat benefits and to overcome the black-hat problems. White See if available information can help in modifying the idea to make it more acceptable. Green Develop the final suggestion. Black Judge the final suggestion. Red Find out the feeling on the outcome.
  91. Sequence Use – Short Sequences  Yellow/Black/Red: Quick assessment (idea)  White/Green: Generate ideas  Black/Green: Improve an existing idea  Blue/Green: Summarize & suggest alternatives  Blue/Yellow: Any benefits? (e.g. the idea)  Etc… “...Be open-minded and creative about the sequence use, too!”

  96. Why Use?  Teachers cultivate a creative mindset to develop rigorous and relevant programs for their students.  Allows students to fail fast and learn by doing rather than avoiding failure by striving for initial perfection.  Fosters the need to ask relevant questions versus giving correct answers.  It requires teachers to guide and show pupils instead of telling and lecturing. Source: http://createdu.org/design-thinking/
  97. Findings…  Increased student engagement and achievement.  Students take ownership over their learning and are better able to see the relevance of it.  Projects are actually implemented for an authentic purpose and audience, making learning more realistic and practical.  Students are more inspired to learn.  It instills' confidence in one’s ability to creatively solve problems.
