Fun Tricks for Learning New Skills
If you’ve ever been bored, frustrated or annoyed while learning, it’s not your fault. The sad truth is that most of us have never learned how to learn. We were told to memorize and practice, but nobody ever taught us how to do these things. The result is that we end up using terrible, counter-productive strategies for learning, wasting our time and frustrating ourselves in the process.
There are countless strategies for learning more effectively based upon science and research. One of the most important things that science has found is that learning works better when it’s fun. This site is an instruction manual for making learning both effective and enjoyable.
Do you struggle with forgetting information? A lack of motivation, becoming bored or giving up? Do you sometimes just feel like you’re wasting your time with your studies?
Modern science suggests that all of these things are avoidable. The traditional methods of learning, like mindlessly copying notes in a lecture and then reviewing them later, have been scientifically proven to be worse than useless. They can actually create a false sense of knowledge, tricking your brain into thinking that you understand when you do not.
