I was always a bookworm. In fifth grade, I was one of the only students in my class to finish every last book on the Battle of the Books competition list.

 

Fast forward a few years and here I am: one of those people who can’t stand the thought of reading on an electronic device simply because of the pure joy that comes from opening up a new book and turning each page as more new information is absorbed.

 

A few weeks ago, I walked into Books, Inc., a local bookstore in the San Francisco Marina. In my pocket was a list of names that I’d been taking down during conversations with different people, and in my brain was that familiar feeling of excitement and wonder that comes from buying new books. In the past, this feeling has usually led to me buying more books than I can manage to read. This time, though, I had a strategy.

 

I had:

 

--Chosen five authors who I knew were experts on what I wanted to learn.

 

--Spoken in detail with a few close friends and colleagues about the best book they’ve read on a certain topic. If someone else learned something from it, chances are I would too.

 

--Signed up with GoodReads, read reviews, and saved the rest of the books I wanted to check out for next time.

 

Before making the final decision on the books I was going to pick up, I had also set specific goals for myself. What was I trying to accomplish? Typically, skipping this step is one of the biggest mistakes in the learning process. There is so much information out there, and if you don’t focus your efforts in phases, it will be difficult to move forward.

Learning to Learn: leveraging your circadian rhythm

Learning to Learn: leveraging your circadian rhythm | Here for The View | Scoop.it

There are a few distinct, precious moments of heightened sensory elation that we can achieve through unique actions; whether that be hitting the sweet spot on your driver from the tee box, tossing that crumpled up piece of paper that started out as a great idea and delivering it perfectly into the waste basket 10 feet away, or something as simple as arriving at the perfect adjective when telling a story to a friend.

 

Achieving a greater sense of cognitive ability when interacting with either the external environment around you or the internal synapses of your own brain is an equally satisfying accomplishment that many believe would lead to immediate success. There is no special formula for arriving at a heightened rate of learning, enhanced memory, or sudden talent for verbiage; however there is a proven internal process that you can utilize in order to maximize your work output, in channeling your Circadian Rhythm.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 14, 2013 10:32 PM

This post looks at the seven dimentsions of effective "learning power" as well as the "new" four Rs (as opposed to the traditional three Rs). The seven dimensions are in the image above. The new four Rs are:

* Resilience

* Resourcefulness

* Reflection

* Relationships

The final portion of the post looks at how the dimensions and 4 Rs are impacting classrooms, noting that the shift to the new dimensions of learning are found in classrooms that more self-directed, where students learning how to learn. Additional information on these concepts are in the post.
