LEARNING: Effective Learning Strategies

My friend RPP posted to the Spladdle Forum a paper he came across on how effective various learning strategies were including the old stand-bys:  highlighting and summarization.

You may be surprised which learning strategies ranked High and which ranked Low. Irrespective of how your favorite learning strategy ranked, if it works for you, keep doing it! However, check out the Study, perhaps you may improve your learning using one of the strategies which ranked High.

Found this article on Reddit:

Based on the following paper: Improving Students' Learning With Effective Learning Techniques: Promising Directions From Cognitive and Educational Psychology.

It has a list of effective learning strategies ranked.

Techniques ranked High

Techniques ranked Moderate

Techniques ranked Low

  • Summarization
  • Highlighting
  • Mnemonics
  • Imagery use for text learning
  • Rereading

Thank you RPP. Hope this helps your Learning on your Sojourn of Septillion Steps!
