Improve Your Learning With These Tips

How would you like to cut your learning work load in half? And remember more? Then be a MULTI-TRACKER. 

Multi-tracking information to your brain is one of the greatest learning shortcuts on the planet. It is one of my favourites. As a speaker to schools, businesses, and organisations, I have to learn a lot. And do it quickly. This technique literally cut my work load IN HALF!

So, what is multi-tracking? Just as there are probably several roads that lead to your house, there are several pathways to your brain upon which you learn. They are called neural pathways. The three main ones are seeing, hearing, and touching: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic.

Anytime you have to learn or remember something, ask, “How can I see, hear, and touch this all at the same time?” Then get creative: take notes, say it out loud, sing the material, talk in a funny voice, listen to cassettes, use memory and mastery cards, a cover card, create a mnemonic, form a study group, teach someone. The list is endless!”

The Key: see it, say it, touch it… remember it.

In the next Brain Bulletin I will tell you about a great recipe I came across for a brain food snack. It works and it tastes good!
