Technologies That Can Help You Learn Faster
Top Technologies to Maximize Learning Potential
For many of us, learning a new skill or knowledge takes time. For others, it seems like we are born with the ability to learn new things easily and without any trouble at all. No matter where you fall on this spectrum, though, there are some tools and technologies that can make learning much easier and more effective. Here are eight great tools that can help you learn faster than ever before.
1. Cramming is not learning
If you’re in school, you probably have deadlines for turning in assignments. This can make cramming tempting, but if you don’t truly understand what you’re learning and aren’t able to apply it later on, then you aren’t really retaining anything. To learn effectively, work on your projects as early as possible so that there is time for them to marinate in your mind—and also so that there is time for potential mistakes. Give yourself lots of extra time and peace of mind by finishing early rather than giving yourself lots of homework or an unachievable amount of extra credit points. You might even find some extra time left over (as a reward) at the end!
2. Create a personalized learning environment
One of my favorite tactics for maximizing my learning potential is creating a personalized learning environment. Part of what makes rapid learning strategies so effective is keeping your focus on one goal at a time. As a result, it is critical to create an environment in which distractions are minimised and productivity is maximized. It may be easier said than done, but there are several approaches you can take. I recommend downloading free apps like Cold Turkey (an app that blocks out distracting websites and applications), using self-control (and allocating some portion of your day solely for non-essential tasks) and most importantly, turning off your mobile phone or tablet device until it’s time to go back online again.
3. Use mind maps
You know those stick figure drawings you see scattered all over notebooks and whiteboards in meetings? Mind maps are similar, except they’re digital. Instead of drawing a mind map with a pen and paper, your can use a word processing program or a website designed for creating mind maps. Check out XMind, a free online tool. These diagrams can help you organize your thoughts by presenting information visually—which can be great for learning new topics or reviewing material that’s already in your brain. And when used correctly, they could help you study more efficiently; research suggests students who use mind maps not only understand their subject matter better than those who don’t but also end up with higher grades on their exams. Need proof?
4. Listen, don’t read
If you’re like most people, you spend at least half of your day reading and comprehending written material. In fact, many education professionals believe we read more today than ever before. While there’s nothing wrong with reading and retaining information in that manner, it might be time to diversify your learning routine by incorporating other modalities. According to research, auditory learners have a much easier time retaining information if they listen to while they read; however, auditory learners are often frustrated when trying to read because their brains can only process a certain amount of information at one time.
5. Use mnemonics
Mnemonics is an incredible learning tool. Whether you’re trying to learn more vocabulary words or a new language, they can help you remember things in record time. Using mnemonics allows you to create stories around your subject matter that stick with you and make it easier for you to recall information later on. This works on everything from birthdays and important dates, times tables, spelling words, even all those notes and reminders on your smartphone or computer. When used correctly (and combined with repetition), mnemonics can turn even mundane details into something truly memorable. And when you have so much information running through your head at any given time, that can be a huge advantage!
6. Take regular breaks
Frequent breaks can actually help you learn more. It has been found that when a person is given a rest after they have learned something, they often learn it better during the next attempt at learning compared to someone who was not given any time off. In addition, it helps memory consolidation which is when memories are created in our brains from short-term into long-term memories. Sometimes we simply need that break in order for us to be able to understand and apply what we just learned.
7. Keep a language notebook
Benny Lewis, a polyglot, popularized this technique. Using a small notebook and pen (or your smartphone), write down every word you learn in that language, along with its English translation and a short definition. After a month or so, go back through your notebook. What did you use? What didn’t you use? If something doesn’t sound quite right, look it up and revise your definitions. Having something physical to refer back to can make a big difference in remembering words and will help keep them from falling out of your memory as quickly as they otherwise might. Before long, you’ll be confident enough to start speaking more frequently!
8. Record yourself speaking (then revise your mistakes!)
Most of us are not naturals when it comes to speaking. The only way we improve is by getting practice—and recording yourself is a great way to get better at talking in front of people. It doesn’t have to be perfect; even if you just have your phone or webcam on while you practice a presentation, it will help you realize what works and what doesn’t. Even though it seems embarrassing, trust me when I say that most people don’t notice (or care) about mistakes. So go ahead and record yourself every chance you get!
9. Write it down
When it comes to learning, your brain is a sponge. The more things you put in that sponge, however, the harder it is for it absorb any more information. This is especially true when you’re trying to learn how to code and keep track of multiple pieces of new information at once. So when you’re working on learning how to code , be sure to write everything down. Take good notes during lectures and keep them as a reference guide later on.
Few Top Technologies
Studying grows more difficult each year, and students are expected to know significantly more than they previously did. As studying grows more difficult, technology is paving the way to make it more enjoyable and interactive. Students will be able to learn more and feel less pressured while doing so. Today, we’ll show you some technologies that can help you learn faster and more enjoyable.
Newyes A5 Erasable Smart Notebook
Millions of trees are cut down each year solely for the purpose of producing paper, which has a significant environmental impact.
