5 FEBRUARY 2019 – PRETORIA – ITSI, the pioneering provider of educational tools based on well-established research in the field of educational neurosciences, today launches Learning Hacks – a study methods course aimed at learners which looks at the latest insights from cognitive neuroscience to ensure learners are equipped with the best possible methods of studying.
The Learning Hacks study method course is based on insights from a variety of disciplines, particularly that of Mind, Brain and Education (MBE), to teach students the fundamental truths of learning. Many myths prevail when it comes to studying, and the Learning Hacks course is aimed at uncovering these myths while teaching kids how to study more effectively and looks at the following concerns:
• Am I studying effectively?
• Could my time be used better when it comes to studying?
• How can I spend less time studying, yet remember my work?
Dr Lieb Liebenberg, ITSI’s CEO, explains, “The brain is the most fascinating organ in our bodies. Scientists still haven’t figured out everything there is to know about the brain because it is so complex and intricate. The Learning Hacks course will help learners get the most out of this incredible, intricate and amazing thing called “the brain.”
The Learning Hacks course is presented during interactive two-hour long workshops once a week over a three-week period. While teaching students how to learn, the course itself draws upon principles of Mind, Brain, and Education.
Benefits to learners:
• Improve your study methods
• Take charge of your own learning
• No more wasting precious study time
• Study more effectively and get better results
• Learn why certain methods work and others not
• Understand how the brain works
• Retain information better
• Retrieve information when it’s needed
Dr Liebenberg continues, “Understanding how the brain works guides us in understanding why some learning strategies work, and others don’t. For example, we teach learners how, every single day, they do things that will shape the way in which their brain develops. Some of the things you do will stop your brain from developing to its full capacity, while there are things you can do to ensure your brain develop to its full capacity. This is the difference between having a growth or a fixed mindset.”
