Consolidating knowledge

Step 4: Enter the PAN (Personal Access Number) and password for the account you wish to add/consolidate. After face-to-face learning, e-learning, blended learning or another type of training, Learning Consolidation reinforces what has been assimilated, optimises retention and enhances the learning outcomes.I also had a complete misunderstanding of the purpose of notes in the first place…Didn’t I ever stop to think that maybe it’s not about the information: that it’s not about making pretty pictures and making sure you’ve covered EVERYTHING that comes out of the professor’s mouth or your textbook pages? Notes are not about simply recording information, but about ACTUALLY getting new information into your head.Yes, you want to be on top of what the professor is saying, but better to actually LISTEN and take down notes on his key points, than act like a copying robot, making sure the spacing on your graph is perfect, and that you select the correct color of pen with the appropriate weight for drawing a parabola…Ridiculousness is all I have to say about how I used to behave… And I can serve up my own errors as an example for other students so that you don’t make the same mistake I did.Spending hours after class going back through and re-organizing my notes meticulously until I was satisfied with their prettiness and organization…Just think, if I had spent that amount of time on something that was actually productive – i.e. For most of us, the problem with studying isn’t that we don’t want to do the work – it’s that going in, we’re not actually sure what we need to be doing to best prepare for the exam.“I feel like writing notes is a waste of time for me and this is probably the biggest problem I have.actually doing practice problems, or preparing for exams, or doing projects early rather than cramming everything into 16-hour marathons at the last minute. I previously wrote out everything I needed to know on flashcards and busted my way through those to get all the knowledge into my head.

Here’s what I ended up with: I can always go back and work through the concepts on this sheet in more detail if I feel a piece of my understanding is missing, but as it stands this is a HUGE upgrade from having to sift through 9 pages of dis-jointed notes which lack the clarified, organized pattern that I’ve now created for myself in just 30 minutes. Now that you have each week of class on 1 sheet of paper, the next step is to take all of those weekly summaries, and prior to your exam, condense all of THAT information down to 1 sheet of paper in the same way as we did before.Thanks to the collected data, the forgetting speed is measured for each learner and the algorithms recommend a reminder just before the learner’s knowledge and skills vanish.Estimate an optimised revision plan with spaced repetition for each user based on his forgetting curve.It organizes related information into a framework, which can then be stored away and tagged with a cue.This spares you mental energy to now go work on other stuff, which can also be added to your “chunk.” The more chunks you make, the more quickly and efficiently you’ll be able to bust out equations, problem solving methods, and explanations later on. So given that, we want a note-taking method that…Here goes…Trying to take notes perfectly is a barrier to learning.
