Studying ≠ Learning
While you're spending hours and hours a day studying, only to be disappointed by your mediocre grades, there are students acing exams in much less time and with much less effort. Their success is mainly due to the fact that they have transitioned from “studying” to “learning” – see diagram below for key differences between the two.
Stop Studying. Start Learning.
To be a successful learner, you must have some basic training on how to learn. In his work, cognitive psychologist David Ausubel made a very important distinction between rote studying (avoids understanding of a subject and instead focuses on memorization) and meaningful learning. He argued that meaningful learning takes place by the assimilation of new concepts into the existing concept framework held by the learner.
This ability to integrate information - identify key concepts and meaningfully structure (organize & connect) for long-term retention and successful application - is key to student learning and cornerstone of Concise Learning method (CLM). CLM embodies a comprehensive, systematic, theory-supported, and student-proven learning method that empowers you to learn effectively and efficiently and can be applied to all school subjects and real-life situations. You’ll know you’re on the right path when you’re actively observing and discovering, asking and answering questions, thinking, understanding and retaining what you’re learning, applying what you’ve learned, and, most importantly, feeling engaged and interested.
Concise Learning will put YOU in charge of YOUR learning and YOUR success, making you feel liberated, empowered, and engaged. Personal change happens only when YOU choose to change, and Concise Learning will assist YOU in making that change by teaching you how to learn and be successful
With help from Concise Learning, you too can unlock your full potential to learning and success.
