I'm always interested in finding new ways to learn quickly and efficiently. It's important to get the most educational value out of my time as possible. However, retention, recall and transfer are also critical. I need to be able to accurately remember the information I learn, recall it at a later time and utilize it effectively in a wide variety of situations.

I've written before about some of the best ways to improve memory. Basic tips such as improving focus, avoiding cram sessions and structuring your study time are a good place to start, but there are even more lessons from psychology that can dramatically improve your learning efficiency.

Learn more in this article on how you can become a more effective learner.

Good Blog Kendra. I believe the best way of learning is ?Learning by doing? or Action Learning.

Kendra,

You are onto a very important topic with this post. My own five year old is in French language immersion kindergarten two to three full days per week. He?s got a great teacher.

Right now however he is learning more Japanese from his instructor at Karate class which he attends for half an hour, only twice per week.

He learns well through the auditory channel in combination with kinesthetic learning ? doing the karate moves.
