Smart Study Skills
In the current environment of rapid changes due to disruptive technologies and increased connectivity, learning agility is a competitive advantage. Learning how to learn at an early age can set you up for success. Unfortunately, the current focus of schools, colleges and students is mostly on getting better marks rather than learning skills that will help them later in life.
Traditional, structured education is very important, yet individuals who are highly motivated to continuously learn, are the ones who are more successful. These individuals prioritize taking out time each day to learn some new concepts and ideas.
There are many scientifically proven methods to help develop the attributes of a lifelong learner. Some of the attributes of a lifelong learner are:
- Active investigator
- Critical thinker
- Self-directed learner
- Effective communicator
Would you like your teenager to become a more motivated learner and do well in academics? Is your teenager struggling with managing time, assignments, and an increasing workload? Does your teenager feel overwhelmed with the workload? Is your teenager getting distracted and aggressive? Is your teenager not meeting their academic potential?
