How to learn better at any age - The Boston Globe

How to learn better at any age - The Boston Globe | Study skills | Scoop.it
PEOPLE COMMONLY BELIEVE that if you expose yourself to something enough times — say, a textbook passage or a set of terms from biology class — you can burn it into memory. Not so. Many teachers believe that if they can make learning easier and faster, the learning will be better. Much research turns this belief on its head: When learning is harder, it’s stronger and lasts longer. It’s widely believed by teachers, trainers, and coaches that the most effective way to master a new skill is to give it dogged, single-minded focus, practicing over and over until you’ve got it down. What’s apparent from research is that gains achieved during such practice are transitory and melt away quickly.

Student-Centered Learning: The Magic of Peer Mentoring | Knewton Blog

Student-Centered Learning: The Magic of Peer Mentoring | Knewton Blog | Study skills | Scoop.it
When one student tutors or mentors another, there is an important dynamic at work. Because the student tutor has recently learned the concepts himself, he understands which areas might be particularly confusing to someone encountering the material for the first time. Not only does peer tutoring confirm and reinvigorate the tutor's own knowledge of the subject, it also serves as a model for the tutored student. He or she may just be inspired to tutor another struggling student!
