STUDY SMARTER, NOT HARDER-
Recent findings in neuroscience show that 'brains like to cooperate' (they do); that writing notes is once through the circuits, but doing colored drawings is not just fun, it's proven brain science. Linking sound (listening carefully in class, or to a video), motor activity (including taking notes or making 3x5 vocabulary cards), coloring, retelling, or teaching someone else, rhyming or making up mnemonic devices, etc, all reinforce the circuitry that makes up our memory. The most effective learning happens in a combination of many modalities and is now widely-accepted best practice based on neurological studies of learning in rats and, of course, humans!
