Innovation Excellence | 25 Things Skilled Learners Do Differently

Innovation Excellence | 25 Things Skilled Learners Do Differently | Museum of Philosophy | Scoop.it

by Sarah Briggs

 

"We also know that people who think about their own learning, make a habit of asking questions, use what they’ve learned, teach what they’ve learned to others, and enjoy the learning process on an intrinsic level all become better learners.

"The good news is, these are all strategies and habits that can be adopted through practice. Why some of us master them earlier than others is another topic, one that may have something to do with parenting, environment, and even genetics. But the point is, we’re all capable. The smartest, most successful people in the world wouldn’t be where they are today if they weren’t skilled learners. So let’s examine which strategies we should be perfecting and how they can serve us in the long run."

A very useful article that recognises that there is a skill (or at least a process) involved to achieve effective learning, and that we can learn this skill, i.e. learn to learn. As the article explains: "The smartest, most successful people in the world wouldn’t be where they are today if they weren’t skilled learners" It goes on to examine which learning strategies we should be perfecting and how they can serve us in the long run.

If you are tired of looking for great alternatives to Prezi – look no further, because I have the ultimate comprehensive list of PowerPoint alternatives right here.  No more boring presentations.

We tested these 10 different alternatives to Prezi and PowerPoint and summarized what we thought about each one.

This is pretty much an ad for emaze, but it's good to know what is available commercially in terms of presentations.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 5, 2015 12:59 AM

Interesting list. Worth checking out some of these tools to see if I like them better than Prezi :)
