Forget What You Know About Good Study Habits
Many parents try to turn their children into study children. But that method is old and boring. Mostly it is because of the rules at home or rules at school. But there are other ways of teaching children to study. ( But you must be motivated).
Cognitive scientists say that only a couple of good techniques can improve the education of children. You can do something like this: instead of just using one study location, just change the room the person studies in.
Robert A. Bjork is a psychologist at the University of California, Los Angeles. He said about this case " We have known these principles for some time, and it's intriguing that schools don't pick them up, or that people don't learn them by trials and error. Instead, we walk around with all sorts of unexamined beliefs about what works that are examined."
All children have different ways of studying, for example, some children are "Visual learners" others are "Auditory learners". Some are " Left-brain" and others are " Right Brain". " The idea is that forgetting is the friend of learning. When you forget something, it allows you to relearn, and do so effectively, the next time you see it." says Dr. Kornell.
