In 1987 Neil Flemming suggested that people learn through a mix of Visual (seeing), Auditory (listening) and Kinaesthetic (doing).
You will see how each of these ways of learning open up different ways of studying.
In lecture 5 I have added a VAK scoring / test, so you can see what your individual preference(s) is.
A concept map is a way of representing relationships between ideas images or words.
In a concept map, each word or phrase connects to another, and links back to the original idea, word, or phrase. As such they are a way to develop logical thinking and study skills by revealing connections and helping you see how individual ideas form a larger picture.
The most widely used cue method is the flashcard.
One of the primary reasons for their success is they require active recall and each time this is practiced you force your brain to remember or recall information.
Nowadays these can be electronic rather than written and there are many apps or sites where these can be created or downloaded.
This provides you with a structured, common-sense way of making sure that you take clear notes, engage with them actively and have accurate material from which you can study or revise. It prevents you from having to laboriously recopy your notes when revising or studying - a so called “do it right first time” method.
When studying a common pitfall people fall into is setting out to learn everything in the order in which is was presented or delivered. However, for a variety of reasons which could include time constraints, fatigue or sheer volume of material this may not be possible, or as you will see, even desirable. Therefore, we need a method of separating what is essential you know from what would be great to know if you had unlimited time and energy.
