Here I am on this weeks task ( if you only do one thing….do this). I found last weeks task very interesting particularly as I discovered that on-line learning is probably not my best way of learning.
This weeks task is what is designing active learning and I have to think about how I learn. Here is where my dyslexia snaps into play as I am an “other ” learner, which means I learn best through emotion, or action or even play I have very little short term memory so remembering facts is quite hard.
I look back as per the instructions, to the last thing I learned thoroughly.
When I have large documents to analyse and learn thoroughly I try to learn the whole thing by heart, which means reading and re-reading, and then, in order to analyse it, I think and think and if possible, dream about it too. It is quite a long and thoroughly tortuous process, and not one I can really encourage students to work with, but it works reasonably well for me. Is this the weirdest learning method anyone has or do others have eve n more peculiar ways of learning?
