Four Secrets Of Effective Learning
1. Understand what kind of learner you are
If you find it hard to learn something, chances are that you are simply doing it wrong. It’s not you, it’s the system! Maybe reading long texts on a book is just not for you, try to focus on shorter passages and to make visual flashcards on our app.
2. The right environment
You cannot simply study everywhere. Sometimes your bedroom has too many distractions, you think you are not focusing on them, but your brain knows exactly where they are. Try to find a simple environment where the most interesting thing for your eyes and brain is the material you are studying.
3. Study with a friend
Get together with a friend or classmate, explain things to each other and ask each other some questions.
4. Make a balance
If you have studied and revised constantly over the year, you will not need to make a huge rush the night before the exam. Balance your social life with your learning needs, your brain needs a break sometimes, we are human!
Work & Study Recording Techniques
Rewind and adjust the speed playback
How did you memorise all the lyrics of the song that you like? You definitely played many times. Then use the rewind function to apply to study as well.
Adjusting the speed playback helps give you more control over their learning experiences. Specifically, you can speed through material you already know or slow down the video playback to get a better understanding of more challenging concepts.
Never forget the primary goal of ClassMaster.io, which is to improve your learning experience by taking better notes. Do not simply listen to your recordings in a passive way, answer each question you hear in the recording, take down notes on everything you consider to be relevant.
Explain the concepts yourself
You cannot say that you are an actual expert in the field until you are able to explain this to someone else. Give it a try, find a friend or relative who is willing to listen to you for 10-15 minutes and try to explain the main concepts you need to learn for your exam. That is quite effective, isn’t it? But what about those times when you are alone and cannot find anyone else for your explanation? Well, our experts strongly recommend to press record on our app, close your eyes and visualise anyone you want in your head while you explain all the concepts you are revising. You can even listen to the whole explanation in order to evaluate yourself and check whether there are missing points!
Play flashcard games
The recording is a great feature, but our team believes in the ensemble effect. Do not focus only on recording and listening, keep your brain awake by alternating this technique to the other great features of our app! Try for example to listen to 3-4 short recordings and design quiz for your self by using our flashcard function. Have a round or two in our Game Arena, this is a great way to keep all the useful concepts in the long-term memory area of our brain!
