1. Introduction: My name is unfortunately mentally Pima, and I'm currently based in this photo. In this class, I'll be sharing with you how to study the skills that you need to enhance your learning in this course is for everyone in the academia, anyone in any training center, or if you're studying online or any platform of study or in this course is for you if you're willing to practically and easily enhance your learning. 2. Why We Need To Study?: In this first lesson on the learning skills, we're going to just activate ourselves and learn why we need to study. Because studying is very important. And if we are to set up a skill, set up a method, to set up a strategy, how to study. Then we might as well define why, why we study. There are five things that I believe are the mainland that we need to know that give reason for our study. We study to attain knowledge. We study to acquire skill. We study TO advance in creativity and innovation. We study to address problems and needs. We also study to achieve our personal goals. Now let's talk about the first one. To attain knowledge. We know that it is in the platform of studies or platform of leanings, like schools, Internet and many other platforms where we learn how to write, how to read, will then literacy and numeracy. We learned the world around us to look at it in a better perspective, to understand human life, animal life, to understand the structure of this f, to understand this guy's many things. So this knowledge packed together in systems and located in one place, like schools and libraries and other facilities. So they all providing knowledge. And that's why we attain our knowledge. The second one, we acquire skills. For instance, there are plumping skills, Pen tool skills, communication skills, and tap. Bring your skills that many skills. Now we are acquired through learning. And so that's why I study is very, very important. Where you are now, if you're sitting in a car, or you're in a plane, or you're in a building, a house, or maybe you're working outside somewhere. You can look around generally get the artificial aspect of that environment. And then they just try to imagine the skills that the way taken or the skills that way joined together to come up with that system, that model, that structure. And then it tells you that learning to acquire skills is extremely important. So the other thing is we learn to advance in creativity and innovation. Creativity and innovation is where we learn how to appropriate then knowledge and the skills that we acquired TO come up with a better model, a better system, and backtype development. We want to improve. We want to make your life even more simpler by coming with the most preferred things that people can use to solve their own problems. Or rhonda to make everyday activity easy, quick, and fast. So the other reason why we study is to address the problems. Every day we encountered different challenges. So we study in different faculties, in different courses, so that we come together to solve problems. Can be individual problems, can be social problems, it can be political problems, leadership problems, socioeconomic problems, that many problems, even legislative problems. So it takes skills, knowledge to solve those problems more easily, effectively and efficiently. And the last one is to achieve our personal goals. We as students, because I'm leaning, I'll be referring to us as students because I'm sharing about learning and study skills. With students. We already have goals in life. If you don't, you should, you should have goals in life YOU study. We study to achieve those goals. Some people's goals is to be businessmen, to be influential person in life, to be an entrepreneur in general, or to just be a public figure to advance in different industries. These are personal goals, even to make money is a goal. So you study to achieve those goals. So it's very important to understand as a student, if you are to strategize on study, you need to understand the importance of study so that every step that you take, you don't take it for granted. In the next lesson, I'll be sharing with you why you need skills to study. Why do you need a strategy? Why do you need a method to study? 3. Why We Need Skills To Study?: In this lesson, we're going to answer the question why we need skills to study? We do, we need skills. We need wisdom. We need a strategy. We have in need practical methods to effect our learning to help us to become more intelligent as we go. Because studying is not just about acquiring knowledge and skill. And all those that I mentioned in the first lesson. It is also about enhancing your intellectual ability. Because the method that you choose for study can either make your mind lazy or stimulate your mind. And I, I've seen many students who became better and better and better just because they chose the best method for them. And so the question of, why do we need skills? Why do we need tapping their foot? Why do we need that strategy to study? Tourism? Reasons? The first one is, students are different. We are different intellectually. There are people who are called geniuses, that people who are called Superintelligence category, and that people who are intelligent. Now, the fun fact is, no one is dumb really. No one is just the metal of the place and the situation you are, because people are affected by environmental background and many things. But let's first talk about intelligence. Intelligence. Students differ in this aspect of intelligence because, for instance, are those who are considered geniuses. Normally, you don't even have a study because they're just smart. Normally, they can even explain things better than their lecturers that teaches. They can immediately understand and immediately appropriate the knowledge that they get. They understand quicker. And our mind allow them to get more information at the time. They are able to suppress pressure. And they're able to even go beyond that level of academia or their level of performances. And these are geniuses. They don't need a method. It just, normally everything is easy. Dylan, quicker. And most of the time lecturers are bothering. You just want to have that freedom to get one material and that material and read everything. Now, the unfortunate part about that is, geniuses are born. But here is the fun fact. Superior intelligence can be attained by anyone. Now superior intelligence category, those who can do better, I would say they can be near genius, able students. You can see them leaning quicker. Having those aspects of ingenious, they may not be genus as such because at times they need to refer back to what they have studied. They can be forgetful. Sometimes they can help those flaws that disqualify them from being genius. Even in test scores, we can score high marks, but they're still not geniuses. But there's a superior intelligence level where you can go with straight A's in class or doing better in everything. And it takes strategy to reach that level. Which strategy they are. Effective strategy of learning. If you choose the strategy for yourself, then you might find yourself in a long run. Being near genius are being considered a genius. In fact, some people can even call you a genius because of you doing well in your, in your studies. So first the reason I said is it different students are different in intelligence. The other thing is that different in exposure. Exposure being cultural difference, background, end, location. Let's talk about cultural difference. If I come from a completely different culture or a student comes from a completely different culture and they are studying abroad. Are there studying in a new culture? It is possible that before students can even cross board, they are linear. They are being affected by the change in culture, the immediate change in culture. And they have to fast adapted to the system of the place where they are studying and get used to it before their mind and everything is confident enough to give them that ability to learn through freedom, through 0s. And so culture in no way affects your level and understand that it may not be a question of, are you intelligent enough? If you're struggling studies? Consider this aspect. Maybe you need to choose a best method of learning for yourself. Because it's different when one person is method of learning may not be your best method for linear, because I'm best method for learning. It goes with your strengths and your weaknesses. It also go with your, your character, your attitude. And so it's very important which method to choose. Let's consider background. If you come from a different background altogether. Let me make this example. Maybe you come from a very scarce place where technology is very, very, very, very unconsidered or inconsiderate. If you come from a place like that, you may find yourself leaning in a place where technology is trendy. Now before you land, you need to adapt to fester, to the gadget, to the systems, to the use of this new technology and new way it affects the way you study. So it's not a matter of whether intelligent or white is met of your background coming from a home where technology is not considered. Or maybe from a painful background where you're dealing with personal things. Those things can affect the level of your linear. Again, it has nothing to do with IU intelligent or not. Now, as I was explaining that they are superior intelligent people, let me explain. Intelligent people. Intelligent people are people who can attend the level of superior intelligent. If they find out that taste. If they find out their weaknesses and their strengths and they use them to their advantage, they might find themselves adopting the best method of learning for themselves. Now remember, method of learning is not just about you, it's also about you stimulating your mind and becoming more intelligent. And these people can move from that stage of intelligence to the stage of superior intelligence. This stage of intelligence is when you are capable, but you haven't really find your signal. You haven't find your strength yet. You haven't find your, your true method. That works together with your attitude and your character that suit you, so to speak. And so these differences, they can affect our study, our learning ended the speed at which we are going to cross the information. You'd get information. So the second reason why we need skills is taught to find the best strategic. You need skills to find the best strategy for yourself. For instance, for me personally, when I was in academia, I'm still, I'm still learning. But when I was in school, literally, I wasn't I wasn't the best student. I wouldn't consider myself best student or intelligence student. I've considered myself someone who knew how to learn because I would see other students know and get things quicker than I. But I was wise enough to see who gets it quicker and I'll go to them and land. Most of the time, I would appear on the top list, not because I was intelligent, but because my method of study, we're helping me. And I couldn't compare myself with someone who is leaning quicker because I know it's easy for them. So I have to be faithful to my method. And that helped me a lot, helped me to even better than people that I know for sure. They are far more intelligent than I if, if truth be told. So here is where the problem is. When it, when it comes to choosing the strategic, many people don't have a learning plan. You just go to school or just opening a program or just enrolling in a training center or whatever space of learning. They just get there and then they have no plan. How are you going to organize your notes? How are you going to study? How you go into allocate your activities and type O, you go into a position yourself organized resources for this lending. So many people land without a plan. And that makes learning very, very difficult because people cry. More about frasier, Frasier and pressure. You just need to be a friend with pressure by having a plan to study. Be able to focus, be able to see that project is coming if you are leaning, definitely pressure is coming and be wise enough to see that other people did they copy other people? They see that that student is doing well and he's using this method or she is using that strategy. Here is the thing. Does strategic may be a difficult thing for yourself. And so you need to really solve this cover and self-interests aspect in terms of what are your weaknesses, what are your strengths? For instance, that person may be extremely disciplined in terms of time. Maybe someone who is extremely stripped with that type of study. And maybe it's something that you don't have. And then if you capture that that method, just like that and you don't know the venues that tribe that method, you might find yourself not really struggling, struggling before. I mean, it's struggling more than you did before simply because you just copied him effort. You tried to do it and you find out that it's the most difficult method ever. And so the other thing is choosing a wrong metaphor. It, choosing a wrong method can also really, really negatively affect your learning. If you see someone go into lecture room in academia, make an example. Going a lecture room for my lecture room to break from brick to library. And the chip that routine, that routine, that routine. And when they get in laboratory, they get there for three hours. And you want to do the same in your mind is not yet used to that excessive reading, you might find yourself really struggling. So choosing around method2 can affect your studies. I know some of you are now asking, am I really using the right method? So it takes skills, it tastes. It takes skills to really discover what method, what method can help you. And I'm going to share with you in these lessons. The other one is overdoing activities. When you choose a strategy of studies, be aware that this can be for overdoing activities. For instance, if someone is always in a library, always in the library are always reading, is reading, reading, reading, reading. Maybe the student understands that learning is reading it. And then they do excessive reading every time, every time. And then you find out that some people do well in that, like I said, that DC level of intelligence, there is difference in the levels of intelligence. Some people can do well by just reading and reading really, but some do very poorly. And unfortunately the normal realize, it's not. When you don't do good by reading and reading and reading. You don't need to add more, afford and read it. You just need to discover why you're not performing well or are you leaning is not is not really benefiting you. When I was in Polytechnic, I would see these guys reading and reading and reading. And then there wouldn't appear in the best performing students, not even in the second performing class of students really performing poorly. And yet there were even put more effort on reading and reading. And reading. Reading is good. But if you, if you don't monitor the level of it, is gonna be very, very toxic in your linear. And so the other thing is, as students, you need to know your character. What is your correct, what are your weaknesses? And so if you know that, if you know your tastes are what you like, the legs, the things that impresses you, those things that impresses you can be gadget on how you study. If you like, games, for instance, you can download an app, but an educational app and length will add m, for instance, vocabulary and terminology, right? It's just a matter of you knowing your character. And so in summary, we are saying you need a method unit strategy. You need skills to land because students are different and because you need an effective strategy for yourself. In the next lesson, I'm going to share with you the seven aspects of studying that you need to be aware of. 4. 7 Aspects Of Learning: In this third lesson, I'm going to share with you the seven aspects of learning. Are there certain aspects of study? If I were to ask you a question, what is this study all about? What would you say? I think it's best to, to understand the skeletal structure of the study are learning so that it gives you a wider perspective of what you're really doing. Because sometimes we may understand one thing in part, not knowing that it is really affecting everything that we do to either the activities of studying. Everything is determined by this aspect. And so I'm going to name this aspect and I'm going to explain each and every aspect for you. But understand that this aspect, I, I took my cases study as the academia, the school itself because I feel like it encompass, it is all encompassing. It encompasses everything that you need. As a student. It doesn't matter whether you're learning through the Internet or in a specific training center somewhere, or in a certain platform some way. But this aspect, it applies to everyone who is in the position a student. So let me break this first before I named this aspect. There is a course of study. And then under that, cause or discourse is subdivided in subjects. Each subject is subdivided in topics. Meaning, if you understand this, it will help you to focus everything, make sense, rather than just learning and learning and learning and learning, it makes your mind to be organized to the understanding of what you're doing. For instance, you know that this course is made up of subjects. You know that all the subjects, they answered this course or they are directed to this course. So your mind is not confused about that. You know that every, every subject that I do, it has to answer what discourse answers are addressed. This course addresses and every topic. Under every subject. It answers what that subject is all about. So it's like a pyramid strategy where you move from subdivisions, tall, less subdivisions, even to the entire course. If you understand that structure, I believe it will help you organize and it will help you on mine details like it. As simple as simple imagination of what you are doing are the aspects that you are in as a student. So these seven aspects of study are the first one is orientation, the second one is people end and merriment. And the Fed one is learning itself. Learning, which encompasses lectures and activities of villainy. And I'm going to explain what that is. Then the fourth one is tutorials and tests. Then we have knowledge. And a sixth one is innovation and creativity. And then the last one to seven for and is achievement. Let's go to orientation. Everything has an orientation. Everything has an orientation. I like to refer to orientation as proper positioning. Considers a student with a new company at school. They are given orientation. Orientation has to do with you being familiar with this environment, you being familiar with people, you've been familiar with the change. You positioning yourself, making yourself ready to study. And here is the interesting part. Every course should have an orientation. If your class doesn't have an orientation, give yourself an orientation, because an orientation is a way you do a pre organization of yourself, pre positioning of yourself. And so orientation is extremely smart because it helps you to discipline yourself here, or it helps you to decide on which things to be proactive on and which things to be reactive on. And it helps you to be ready for the pressure that's coming. So orientation is positioning is familiarizing yourself. Every course should have it. Every subject should have it. In. Every topic should have an orientation. Introduction or the subject is an orientation because I'm introducing this subject to you so that you know that this is what you're going to learn under this subject. If my subject is how you are going to communicate communication skills and I give you introduction on communication skills. That introduction, it gives you the understanding that whatever you're going to learn. As a subject under communication skills, understand that download is this introduction. That is, that is all that orientation is, all, is all about. And I will be sharing with you in other lessons, strategies that you need to adapt in this aspect. In fact, in every aspect of learning. Now, let's go to the second one. People and environment. You're a student, you're in a new environment. Or maybe you're not in a new environment, literally in terms of position and maybe an online student. But it's a new environment because you are starting to do online courses. It still applies. Is you familiarizing yourself with this environment? And as I said, my case study is neutral school in the academia. Consider student in Newcomb. They are in a new environment. They need to familiarize themselves with their own lectures facilities. The students knew friends now. So it's all about positioning yourself. Lecture rooms or lab, library, labs, computer labs, depending on what your study. And other recreational facilities spot. Facilities, most busy places and the most quiet places. It's very important to really master environment in your mind because it's part of your study. So steady is not necessarily just about getting information. It has everything to do with monitoring the environment, the people, and the facilities. So that's the other aspect of study. The other aspect of study is learning itself is literally, this is when now activities get intense this way and I will talk about pressure. This is where theorists are shared this way, students attended lectures are being taught, be tested through tutorials and tests. Given assignments. Just swipe consultation is made, is where interaction is done. This is where you do project as students. You do research, uh, students, and this way you do interdisciplinary activities. We're now learning is at coal. And this aspect is the most important of all because of what I'm sharing with you. And the other. The fourth aspect is tutorials and tests. Tutorials and test. I feel like it's self-explanatory. But Galaxy excited with tutorials and tests because they determine the eye like a scale that tell you not necessarily as good. You, are you leaning? Every tutorial, every tests? Ask yourself, are you learning? And so you have to test it to see if really you and getting what you study. And so if this is not done, I know many students hate tests and tutorials. You just feel like by just lend, but they need to do that because you don't just need to learn. You need to understand the questions. You need to maneuver around what you learned. And you also need to be able to appropriate what you have learned to answer questions to see that when you graduate, you radial solve problems out there or come up with solutions out there. So unit tests, unit this trial and you need to really get excited and I'm going to share with you strategies to use towards tests and tutorials. The other one is knowledge. Knowledge. Let's simply define it way. This aspect of knowledge is a cornfield and understanding of the topic or confident understanding of the course, are confident understanding of the subject. Now, understand that you're leaning, right? You're not leaning to do tutorials and tests. You are learning to know. We did this in the first lesson that we are lending to acquire skills and so on. So your aim is not to lend, to pass a test in Len, to be confident in the understanding of this, of this topic enough for you to appropriate the information in the skill that you have to solve the problems around or the problems all over the world wherever you are. And so that's why you are Leni made sure as a student that every subject, in every topic that you study, at the end of it, you have a confident understanding of it. Meaning, you need to aim to the stage where you say, I don't need to study that. Again. I think now I get it. Right. And so I realized this. With me when I was in school, one of my weaknesses was always, in my mind. I put it this way that I need to learn always even if I understand the topic, whenever tests come, I need to go read that topic and it's a waste of time because I already understand it. And so it is because of confidence, lack of confidence that I did that. So you need to have that confidence, understanding of the topic enough to say, whenever time comes, I can take your test for it. Whenever a problem comes, I can suggest something about this topic on that, on that problem. So that is the aspect of knowledge that we need to really, really aim well and have a solid and true and beneficial perspective about. The other one is innovation and creativity. Remember as a student at the end of it all, was the use of view, having a skill, was the ease of use. Heavy and knowledge is, of course, coming up with better models. Or maybe a substitute models are to improve existing models, to come up with better theories, right? Because here's the thing. Academia or study or package of study away we are learning. These are all people's ideas which have been approved to be beneficial to the surrounding environment. And they have proof the many times that died beneficial and they have been made a cause for you to learn so that they, they help you. At the end of your study, you need to be extremely creative and innovative. Meaning you have to demand creativity and innovation from what you're learning. What can you do with what you're learning? There is always room for improvement. It can improve systems, it can improve ideas, it can improve even subjects. By what you're learning. You can discover floss. And so this is where creativity comes. But I love summarizing creativity as appropriation of skills and knowledge you have for the betterment of other people's lives and yourself. And so that's creativity and innovation. So the last aspect of study is personal achievement. Everyone is looking to achieve a self actualization stage wave. You reach your full potential. We achieve what you want to achieve. You want to achieve health, health needs. You want to achieve financial needs. You want to achieve social needs, you want to achieve business needs and many other aspects of your life. And so one of the things that students should really, really, really put in their mind is that at the end of my cos, I have to make a living out of this. I have to get something that will benefit me. I have my personal goals. And this subject in this study is they need to help me reach my goals with ease. And we have more effectiveness and to be profitable and successful in everything that I do. And so that's why we say this aspect of study is important and it sort of wrap up everything that you learn at school. And so in the next lesson, we're going to look at strategies. We talked about this aspect. Now we're going to look at learning strategies in each and every aspect. And there are strategies in each and every aspect of study. 5. Practical Strategies To Enhance Learning Methods: In the following lessons, I'm going to share with you practical strategies you can adapt in enhancing your learning. Skills are linear methods. Now, understand that not every strategy that I shared with you will help you, but you listening to all these strategies, you may discover some are, have interest in some. And understand that when you get a right strategy for yourself, you need to test it. If it benefits you, you don't need more other strategies. And also understand that one strategic and work for a certain cause. The other strategy can work for other courses because even causes they differ in their own structuring. And so I'm going to share these strategies so that it becomes easy for us to grasp. As in the previous lesson, I shall avoid the seven aspects of studies, the strategies. I'm going to share them based on each aspect. I'm going to start first with orientation and understand in our mind as students, we have a course, we have a subject and a subject. Each and every subject is subdivided in topics. So we're going to look at these strategies based on those structure in our minds. So let's look at strategies and the first aspect, orientation. Orientation has to do with you positioning yourself for study. Now, the first thing that you need to do is to have goals. Have a personal goals in general, and personal goals in the academia. In other words, how have general goals and academic goals? For instance, your general goals can be, you want to start a business, you want to design a certain model, or you want to advanced in a certain industry. Also, you want to buy chi or into my house. You want to buy a property. And those things, those can be or generals, I'm in general goals. But academic goals, the level of unilineal, what do you want to know? We want to be excellent, right? You want to be competing. You want to hit higher mark, not for the sake of hitting higher score, but for the sake of you really leaning everything, not missing what you're learning and set academic goals for yourself so that every time they become checkpoint, they become your motivation and your strength and a point of organization or self-organization. And so set goals. Setting goals is a strategy. A person who set goals were performed differently from a person who doesn't set goals. Why? Because the person who set goals will do their activities differently. And that pace of studying would be different from someone who has no goals, who's just study. And so that's what you need to do. In the pre-stage of orientation. Every start of every course and every style of every subject set goals for yourself. The other thing that you need to strategize on is adopted, being proactive rather than being reactive. Donald, lead lecturers and students and the environment leads. You. Always endeavor to be ahead. Always do a pre researchers, pre studies, for instance, a course outline. Start studying. Do not wait for that subject to be introduced. Start learning through the Internet for library materials and other platform. Go ahead. Even if some of things you may not understand, just keep on going ahead. Look at the industry. Industries. Visit the industry's, ask people questions that instead learning started going ahead. And you find out that learning becomes easier and you'll forget even more pressure. And so this strategy in the orientation aspect of study, also organize yourself. Organizing yourself has to do with resources. How you organize your resources to help you study easily and effectively. For instance, buy materials. I know a friend who was very prescient and he bought this tablet and he installed apps and he made sure that everything that he is doing in a material form, you're also doing in a visual form. You'll drive nodes. They're more like skin, some notes, written notes, and then put them in his tablet and coupon reading. He used a tablet everywhere he went. I think he went to Selenium to be portable for himself. He went out to learn everywhere he is. I think that was that was really, really smart. And so don't be afraid to spend on your linear. I know you may have some other facilities like library, but there's something that you will need to buy just for you to enhance your study and don't be afraid to do that because studying is an investment. So you need to do that in a pre-stage, very beginning in the orientation stage of every cost, every subject and every, every topic. Because every topic and every subject, they come with their own demands. So the other thing that you need to organize yourself on or give expectation to yourself on is five questions. Understand that a cos, a subject or a topic, they tend to answer these five questions. What, why, who weigh, how? So? What is this topic about? What is it about? Who does it benefit or who does it affect? Where is it applicable? Meaning industries and aspects of life, and how it does it apply to me? So if you answer these questions, you will find out that your summarize the whole topic and also the question, why is it important? Why, why am I learning this particular subject? These questions are very serious because the people who discover what they are learning while they're leaning it, they go, they're having no clue what their study. And then when they are in the middle of the cost, they start complaining that I don't think this is what I really wanted to learn. This is not what I thought it was, right. It's because of failing in orientation, because it's digital orientation is where you familiarize yourself with this course, with this study. Why is this, why am I leaning in this study? Maybe you went there to study film production. And then now you are being taught entrepreneurial skills. You need to answer that question for yourself. Why am I leaning entrepreneurial skills as a film producer, right? If you investigate that question, you'll find out that you really, really need it. So these are the strategies in, that apply in the orientation. And in the next lesson, I will be talking about strategies in the people and environment aspect. 6. People & Environment: In this lesson, I'm still continuing on strategos, but I'm going to focus more on the second aspect of studying being people and environment. Now let me remind you that pupil and environment, they talk about people in the environment of studying, of people who directly have influenced on your learning. And this is the first one is you yourself. The second one is your classmates, your lecture, us. And then people in that facility of learning, they affect your learning capacity. And so why do we need strategy in this aspect? Here is why, because we said people are different. And also if you can't do effective self-discovery, you might choose the wrong method of study or wrong strategy for yourself. And guess what? You have your own taste. What can be someone else's good to you? It can be just a stone that's there and it's not beneficial anyhow. And so you need to learn yourself, learn yourself linear weaknesses and linear strength. If you know yourself to that depth, then you know exactly which strategy of study, which method can be beneficial to you. For instance, if you are already, you don't like reading. You don't like reading at all. There are other blood from you may consider can consider like learning through videos, video modules, yes. Or lineage through audios, if that can be provided. Right. But if you don't know that you don't like reading or you don't like reading, but you force yourself to read. Even studying becomes more boring for you, right? And I know that there are other weaknesses that we need to improve. Yes, because you cannot necessarily entirely suspend the idea of reading or quite disqualify the idea of reading you need to read. But if it's not your thing, you can consider other aspect. Why? Because you know that you don't like reading. And so knowing yourself is extremely important. Even though you qualify for that cost on that subject, just study. Would you consider yourself to be someone who is able in vocabulary, who is able in terminology, right? If you're not able in vocabulary, able in terminology, studied learning terminology that is related to this topic that you're studying. Stopped being proactive about it. It can, it can adapt something like everyday or learned. Three new terminologies are three new words or three new vocabulary that relate to what I'm studying. It can do that. Why? Because you know that you're weak in terms of vocabulary and in terms of terminology. And also if you are still trying to master organizing yourself in terms of timekeeping or activity allocation, you know that it is organized the person do not initially choose a method. We demand that mall and rather improve yourself in that and then adopt a method. I'm not saying it's impossible, but nonetheless, you can, but it's going to be of more effort than if you would by changing or adapting a trait that will help you with positioned in that, in that strategy or in that method. So also in your lectures, like this aspect is people and environment. Then your lectures. One thing that I know that many students miss, and they keep complaining about. One thing is this. Lecturers are too quick on lectures or too boring. Or I can understand my lecture. Now, here's a fun, fun, fun thing is that you know your different styles of your lecturers. And if you keep complaining about it, it's not wisdom. If you know that your lecture is quick. Lecturing in the oxygen that they are moving too quickly. It means that the method that you're going to adapt it in adolescence has to flow with that. It's not a metal over who is, how? It's a matter of what strategy do you use yourself to keep yourself in that pressure or to keep yourself in that flow. So it's, it goes back to you as a student. What are you doing about it? If your lecture is using too hard over terminology, what are you doing about it? If the, if the pressure is too much is too much theory, what are you doing about it? If there's too much assignments, what are you doing about it? So it's a matter of strategies. So it's wise for you to learn from an early stage to lend each and every teacher or every lecture has given you a less than their style. And then now. Think about how you're going to position yourself in their styles. How am I going to flow if teacher number one, number two, number three, because this one is like this, this one is like that. It will help you a lot and you will flow very well with them because you're in a short run, you will have adapted to their, to their flows. And so len, other students, when you're in a lecture room, look around, don't be ignorant. Language students are quick learners. Which students are competent, then which students are quiet, and yet they are always on the best of students. Language students are really derailing others. Students who want to want to distract others and they do help len, len those things, lend those students who are extremely friendly and Len students who are influential, and then students who can really take you astray. If you lend different, different behaviors of students, you will know which students can help you with what. It's part of lending. And so it's part of this environment and this aspect. Also learn about the characters of your new friends. Now because if you go to school, if you're normal, normal students, normally, you'll make new friends one way or another. You just meet people. They may not necessarily be on best of friends. But there are people that you can always handled with are always more like talk to and be an immediate people. You can talk to those people. I consider them friends in the academia. And if you strategize on what type of cookie you want, and it's possible, then you help yourself in lending or enhancing your learning. For instance, myself, when I first came into college, polytechnic techniques, so to speak, I decided what kind of friends I'm going to keep. I decided I look at this certain values and we get the seriousness and commitment. And then I wet myself to their spheres are wet myself to the environment. And at some point we became friends and they helped me a lot in my learning. And I believe I helped them a lot in there leaning too, because at some point you will have to contribute to. So it's an exchange of information and exchange of assistance. And so if we do this, students will try to just inches the best strategies for ourselves. Also, the facilities are extremely important. You will need to learn about their recreational facilities because you are not just keep on learning. Recreation is part of learning. You need some exciting refreshment. You need to go and play with your friends, go out and have fun with your friends. It's part of learning because your mind doesn't need a protein. You're minded need something that will stimulate, that will stimulate it, something that grid challenge you to think in a more creative way. Your mind? One's always to critically think. And I tend to flee, get things. And so if you study, have fun, study, have fun. It's a healthy thing to do. Yes. And so you need to familiarize yourself with facilities for recreation, facilities, for learning, facilities for administration. Because everything that can affect your study is part of your studying. So you need to know for what neat and for what help you need to go to which facility? Yes. And in the next lesson, I'm going to share with you strategies on the learning aspect. And this is the core of my cost today. 7. Strategies Under Literal Learning: In this lesson, I'm going to share with you strategies under literally leaning. And this is the core of my cos. When now you get to understand the practicality of learning and maybe discovered the best methods and strategies for yourself. And maybe even discover why at some point you are struggling or in some aspects you struggling as a student. Now, I want to give you this structure of a topic so that every time when you know that you have learned, you know that you have cruise through these four aspects of the structure. The structure of a topic, meaning each and every topic should have. This structure, is a topic that you learn, does not complete this, structure it and explain why you may have many problems with that, with that topic. Because this is a structure that proves that you have really, really attained a skill or knowledge to the fact that you have confident in its understanding. And you can actually appropriated to benefit yourself in solving their own problems and attend your own needs, helping others and even contributing in their socioeconomic development. Every topic has this structure, it has introduction and Fury. It also has demonstrations. Therefore, after demonstrations, we have exercises and now real-life problems. Now, introduction and Fury, they go together. Introduction is you understanding what this topic is all about? What is this topic about? Who does it apply to, whether that apply away? Is it applicable? Why is it important to me? Why is it important to the cost that I'm studying? How will it benefit in any way? And how will it even contribute to the industry that I want to advance in? And if you answer those questions in the first place, whatever you're going to learn afterward is gonna be very, very easy for you, for you to understand. So introduction of a topic is extremely important. But introduction is not just about a topic. It's even the person who is teaching you their voice, the style, everything that comes with that topic is going to affect. You're going to understand that. That is an introduction. Theory is the part where this topic is now being explained in depth. Where their listings, where they are quotations, where there are times where the many, many things that encompass the whole topic, that's a theory. But this theory, it's not going to be important if it is not practiced, if it is not converted. In practicals. And this practicals, we'll call them demonstrations. This is when you're given examples of the Furies that you, that you're learning are that you lend you given examples that you may be familiar with. And even you yourself understand that this is not just you receiving, it's also about you finding out for yourself. In other words, while you've been given an introduction, being proactive, handle your own introduction by getting a cost outlay, right? Right. If you have a course outline, there's no stopping. You have your own introduction. While you're being given introduction. Have your own fury while you're being given a theory so that you compare and see where you didn't understand, why do you have researched? And so I'd follows introduction and furious demonstration. This is where we do an exercise that classwork. This is where we do club discussions. This is where we are given assignments to do projects, to do. In demonstration, we do experiments in this, in this factor. So the effect, the effect of this structure is exercises. Exercise is now continuous. Exercises are continuous solving of tutorials. They are there for you to exercise what you have learned because everything needs to be exercised to be established in a linear. And so the fourth one, which is the last one, is real life problem. Now, this one is, I call it graduation factor, because if you have learned, you have demonstrated and you have even exercise yourself in it. Now what we need is for you to solve real life problems using the skills that you have, using the knowledge that you have. And please don't wait until you graduate to be in this stage. I believe this has contributed to many students struggling in the academia or in their learning, is where they believe that dual use their cause or why they are learning after they graduate. My advice that using my cerulean now, start discovering its importance. Start investigating how you can appropriate it to solve your own problems and other people's problems. Volunteer somewhere and do something to practice what you are learning in real life aspect. And you find yourself really leaning easily. And you will even forget that you're really leaning. Find yourself just taking information up, playing a, taking information, just a play it. You will do that for learning, for knowing, instead of passing tests are impressing someone else. And so this is a full structure of a topic. And if you are in a limited environment where you don't follow this structure, they don't have to follow this structure necessarily. In fact, what I love is it's possible for every student to understand this truck to add an early stage where you don't even need a demonstration. You already understand it, right? So make sure that you don't make it some kind of strict law for yourself. But this tract is just to help you really get this, get this what you learn in get it enough for you to appropriate it. And if you understand it at a furious stage, right? If you understand it at a furious days from then you can even take it to Live problem solution. And so just don't follow this strictly just for the sake of following it. What we want is for you to learn effectively and be more intelligent. In my email. Next lesson, I'll be sharing with you more and this literal anymore strategies that you can adapt and that you can get or improve the strategy that you already have for learning. 8. Personal Traits To Adopt: In this lesson, I'm going to share with you some very useful personal traits that each and every student should have or should adopt. These are personal traits that will help you discipline yourself and help you aim well and even be organized in the entire learning. So first of all, personal trait that I want to share with you is study to know, not to pass. I know it's possible that under pressure or under various circumstances, a student can even forget about leaning to know, forget about what was important. And then these are being desperate for passing. And be wise enough to lend to know. Because here's the thing. If you know, you will pass. But it's possible to pass without really knowing. That's why other students can be now caught cheating or manipulating. Other students are doing some things that are not appropriate simply because they want to pass to learn. So understand that this is a very important trait for each and every student out day. Passing one help you as much as you're learning to know. I remember myself, There are some subjects that I was, I was tempted to do that. I was tempted to just know what we pass our land afterwards. It's not a good idea. Then Ohio still can. This student that I want to make example with this guy? He was studying engineering and what he did deliberately because of pressure. Deliberately. He focused on he was doing six subjects. He focused on four subjects and deliberately ignore these two. And he said, You know what? I'll just fill these two subjects are focused on this force object because it's too much for me because I want to learn these four subjects. And then when I repeat, I'll do these two subjects. Now. I'm not suggesting that you do that at all. But i'm, I'm showing you that some people's perspective is that strong in learning that they consider the importance of knowing than the importance of passing to that extent. And so there's no pressure. There is nothing that can be an excuse for you to really learn, to know instead of toolpaths and be happy to get things wrong. That's the other trait. Be happy to get things wrong. I'm sure you've noticed by now that even in life as a general aspect, we learn more when we have failed. We learn more in challenges, right? So when you get things wrong, don't be discouraged. I've seen many people have been discouraged because of tutorials and tests. Extremely discouraged, some even wanting to quit. That is not a good idea. That is a time for you to really learn why that is happening. It's a lesson two is just it comes in a negative aspect, but guess what? Is still less than, so? Lend more from your failures than scaring away and wanting to quit. So don't be afraid of failure. Don't be afraid of failure. Now, there are people who study throat desperation, who studied through rushing, who studied through anxiety. And some students they ended up taking their lives because they are, they don't, they are intolerant of any failure. Say every person fears even geniuses, they do fail. It's just a matter of how you look at failure. Failure should be your friend. And so it should benefit you instead of pressurizing new event affecting your life in general. Also, opt for understanding why your inner lecture than catering to Lenin later. I love this trait. I love this strategy. For me. I discovered that every time when I'm in a lecture room, or in a classroom, or in a space of learning. I'll be learning with the perspective that if I don't understand it, I'll read it later, that's not a good perspective. You know why? Because your mind is given a very east position where it's not been challenged. But if you get intellectual rumor with this mindset and motif, I'm going to listen to the effect that I don't need to go back and study this topic I gave. Try it. That doesn't necessarily mean you won't have to go back to this topic again. It just means that you want to get everything altogether now while you're learning it. I have a friend who when we in high school. Who used to practice attentive listening? Very well. In fact, if you tried to talk to him while he's listening, they'll give you a signal that shows you that, no, I don't want to talk now. Right now. I want to listen and I don't want to miss a thing that has been set from, from the lecturer or the teacher. And he was so good in his performance. And I realized that his strength was listening, skill. Listen very attentively because he will pay much attention to each and every detail that is being given through that teaching. And so we need to avoid that destruction of say, You know what? Let me just listen. Yes, let me listen. But I know if I don't get it here, I will still learned later that is affecting you, that is affecting your intelligence and that is not challenging your mind. Lesson now and listen to the effect that you can even write a test after you listen. Yes. So if you give yourself that attitude, you'll get used to it and bit by bit, your mind or get it, your mind will now flow and you'll reach that level of intelligence and find out that you don't have to go back to studying. Again, we've been taught with more effort. As before. The other trait is be a teacher while you study, a tutorial. This trade, I love it because it's you learning to teach what you're learning. You get this trait or this character of sharing effects with your friends, your colleagues, or your acquaintance, or your family members. Sharing with them what you're learning, but make it more interesting. Don't make it too formal. Make it part of the conversation like the Juno that day. F is actually spherical. It's not fled. Yeah, yeah. And I can show you how I look at this and this and this, that way you don't feel like you're printing the academic atmosphere upon them. They feel like you're sharing interest in knowledge. So make, make what you're leaning fanfic and share them with people. Always talk about them. And you find that, that by doing that you are actually revising. You are actually learning a lot, even getting more understanding of what you thought you really understand if you start talking to people. And the question that they will ask that you are important too, because they will determine you really understanding or you're not. If you are not understanding, it is good because it suggests that you go back and refer back and study again and see or investigate answers for those questions. And you'll learn more by doing, by doing that. So it's a very important trait to teach as you learn as a student and it's a very effective, effective trait then to call things by their names. Now, this one is just, it's my favorite, by the way. Lend to call things by their names. Why is it my favorite? Because it was my weakness for a long time. I discovered it later. In fact, I wish I knew this when our cilia, I wish someone taught me mind calling things by their names. Men cooling actions, by their names, processes by their names, people by their names, animals, by their names, things by their names, everything. Make sure you call it by a name that gives you Superintelligence. Understand that while we go, while all of us as students, we go in a lecture room. We go in a lecture room with different levels of vocabulary and terminology. Some are struggling in understanding vocabulary and understanding the gram and understanding the terminology. Why they're struggling. The lecture is going on. Now they need to learn what these words mean before they understand what the subject is all about. Meaning, they don't understand the lectures what they are saying. Why? Because of the level of terminology. So even if I believe this dislike trade that can be adapted from an early stage where children are taught. Instead of saying premier, that brown woody thing that is like this, like this that has four legs. Bring it to me. It's different, It's less intelligent if we'll call things that way. You always have to describe things that way instead of saying a chair, right? That unimodal have this long tail and has this wide, wide and bring it, or looking at it that affects your intelligence. Find its name. Investigate what is its name is. And you find out that everyday you're leaning things by their names when you get to it. Level of course you understand every word or almost a fluid that is coming out of the mouth of whoever is teaching you. Why? Because you are now acquainted, your minded the vocabulary. And so this is the best to treat ever that I believe it's for a lifetime. Lend to call every person, every animal, every thing, by its nature, even processes. Processes, called this process by its name. Processes that are described in one term. Len, what that term is, it's more intelligent that way. For instance, let me talk about communication skills. You know that it's possible that someone have no clue what communication skills is. What is communication skills, right? But you know, in this process of communication skills and knowing its communication skills, that the ten minutes of it makes you intelligent. Because when you are lecturers explain something to you, they will try to explain it in a way, right? Because everything is given time. Even when you get in a lesson or in a lecture room, you don't get in that room all day, right? I had a two hours or less. It means that a lecture has to limit the terminology, limit the information, meaning the best way they will teach you is using tempts, right? And if you familiarize yourself with as many times as you can, you'll do it in the academy. You'll be more intelligence while you're talking to your friends took into people if they use words that you haven't had that but they're using them in a normal setting. Matte that wet and find out what it means or ask your friend, don't be ashamed not to know. They may laugh at you say, you don't know, this term, doesn't matter. Just learned Dan asked them what does it mean? They'll tell you, guess what, now you know? And if you do that, you'll find out that you learn quickly than someone who has to learn vocabulary fast and grandma first terminology first before now the linear topic and subject. And so that's a very important veil, is very important. Trade to adapt as a student, a student has to value that time. Your time has to be extremely valuable. As a student, you should behave like a student. You are someone who is now mainly focusing or significantly focusing on leaning, meaning your time is extremely important. You need to now must stay or activities understand that activities, categorise activities, understand the importance of activities and prioritize, opt for activities that can be important to your studies and activities that are not important to your studies. Put them aside. And also organize yourself in terms of which activities are more important, which activities are a must-do? Which activities are not? Random? Activities that are never do, or activities that you can categorize as may do, or activities that you can say, not now, maybe later. So organize your time missed should do with your time as a student, it's extremely important to do that because your time is a resource that you can even invest your studies in and you don't have your choice. The other thing is be consistent. Now, you can, you can choose the best strategy ever and failed to be consistent. And either fail to be consistent. How does your strategic help you? Not just, do not just discover what strategic best suit you, but also endeavour to be consistent. Position yourself in a consistent manner. In this strategy. Do not judge strategy in a pre-stage where you say, I tried in two days, it doesn't work. No, that's not enough. You need to really, really get this strategy in practice for a considerable number of days to really prove TO satisfaction that this strategy fail or succeed. And so consistency is going to be important even if you have discovered best strategy for you is possible that the problem may not be finding a strategy is being consistent in a strategy that you discovered. And so that is another problem. If your performance or your learning is being affected, it may not be affected by the question of, do you have a strategy? But the strategy that you have is good or bad. Are you consistent in it? And so as a student, you need to be consistent in whatever strategy you find. 9. Levels You Must Monitor: In this lesson, I'm going to share with you as a student which levels you must monitor quite well because they can be extremely beneficial or extremely toxic to your leaning advancement. And so there are three levels that a student must monitor because you cannot avoid them. But the level that you engage in them either negatively or positively affect your studies. First one, level of pressure in your study environment. Number two, level of terminology in the cost of just steady and level of reading. Let me talk about first-line level of pressure. As a student, you need to really know when you are pressurizing or someone else is pressurizing yourself. And many activities that pressurize you as a student, render them unnecessary, right? And also confront yourself if you find yourself really pressurizing yourself in learning. Because. 10. Strategies That Work Effectively: In my previous lessons, I've been mentioning strategies and methods of studying. Emission is skills of studying. But you may have been asking yourself, what are these are skills? What are these method or what are the strategies? And in this lesson I'm going to share with you strategies and methods of studying or learning that I saw them work effectively for myself and many other, other students. And some of them may be or gold in your studies. And the first one is study in pieces or in episodes or other study in pieces and in episodes. This one, I saw it in one of the best engineering students that I ever, ever encountered. This guy is method of studying was to study his notes in pieces. He bought a tablet and he made sure that every of his notes in there and every, every space he gets for study, cute study. Read a paragraph already, read a topic for five minutes, ten minutes. And he's the one who taught me this strategy, you would say because he was commuting to school everyday. He was a scholar. So he would take a taxi from home TO way he was studying the institution where he was studying. He would use that trip for study. He would read that short trip. You would read when he goes home, he would read. I remember when we were playing to get with them interacting. Just go aside for just five minutes and then read or continue to read your topic and then put his tablet away and then play. He was a person who believed that. That is a way of getting rid of pressure, of studying. He didn't like reading, and Barak, he didn't like reading, he didn't like math reading. Let me put it this way. He didn't like mass reading is not a person who likes saying, I work best under pressure. I know is someone who is extremely organized, disciplined, and he trusted that method and later became best student in engineering. He liked reading in episode, in small pieces. I believe that is a method that helps your mind. It helps you to avoid too much of pressure, especially as far as your mind is concerned, because if you put more information within a short time, your mind gets tired. But if you read in pieces, piece by piece by piece by piece, you give yourself space to understand that topic, space to think about it. And even when you read again, you're, you're ready to read again more. And somehow it has its way of stimulating your mind and the result. I've seen that myself and I tried it, but I wasn't as perfect as he was in it. And so it's one method that you can apply and it can work. The other way of studying is audio studies. This one I've, I've done it and I have really done well or do your studies is where you actually read your notes aloud. While you're reading your notes aloud, recording yourself. You're studying while you're reading, and recording at the same time. And later, you just put in the headsets or earphones. Just listen to yourself reading your notes. Wherever you go in you're listening to or reading those nodes somehow your study, instead of reading, you're listening to the audio of your nodes. And also that it is effective to, especially because some people prefer adios over reading. Some people prefer video modules over any type of lending method. And so audio studies are very, very effective because it's molecule then twice, you'll learn while you're reading and you're recording yourself. Even while you discuss this nodes to yourself, you're recording yourself. Later. You're going to listen to yourself reading and discussing these nodes. The other one that I love very much is group discussion or this one. Of course, it is affected by the clip you choose because you don't just join a group discussion, just because it's a group discussion. You join a group discussion where you see people organized and serious with their learning. And then you join your join for two reasons, to receive assistance and to contribute to. And so when you get them in a group discussion, you'll find yourself that if this group discussion is extremely effective, they discuss everything. They do tutorials and test the challenge each other. You will find yourself really learning more there than learning. When you're alone. You find that. You don't even need to go back and read the topic now you get it, you understand it. And people are, have this ability to explain things in different ways without tampering with the mini, right? And so one person can explain one thing and you don't get it in the other, explains it and you get it. Other people are good in demonstrations, are good. Examples, are, are good explanation. So that's why we need discussion. Now, I know that people who love waking alone, I understand that and I respect that. But that doesn't necessarily mean our club discussion is not important. If you find out that waking alone sometimes can affect you, it can really, really even contribute to the pureness of your studies. But if you do well while waking alone still That's good. It means that intellectually you are able to adapt to that method. But crib discussing is extremely important generally to most students. And so you might want to find one, but be critical when you choose it and don't be apologetic, be biased of course, when you choose a group discussion, if you choose a group discussion of, of, um, let me, let me see selfishly say, if you look at the students and then you see that these people, they are always below me in terms of performance and stuff like that, you're not going to be challenged enough if you go to a club discussion of students who intimidate you, students who are competing. Student, you're always feel less intelligent around that. That's a place you want to go. That is a place that you are going to discover capability. You join those group discussions if possible, if they allow you. Be smart in choosing what group or what study made, the same thing applies to study. Men can have someone, they can be just two of you. And you can really do well if you really keep on being faithful to the activities that need to be adapted in group discussion. The other one is effective consultation. Now this one, I love it because I've seen it and it has been my own testimony, so to speak. Way you annoy lecturers. Now I want to put it that way because if you are a student who when they meet a challenge, you go to a lecture and you ask, at some point if you do that every time they're going to be annoyed, but do not relent. Always do that. I remember when we were in internship as students, we were in this six month internship students. And we found out when we get into the industry, we didn't know much. We were full of furies and of course, practicals that are not improvised. And so when we get there, we just found out these people be fast, to be quick and adapting even method that we didn't know. And so we realized that if we don't consult well, we are going to really, really acquire less and less skill and knowledge. And so we chose this with my intention, mates, we chose to do effective consultation where every time when we see something we don't know, we go to a PESTLE we were accounted to in that company, in that industry. We went to that person, asked him questions and fortunately, he was patient. And it wasn't initially it wasn't just him were asking many. Right. But he proved interested. He wanted to explain things to us and us patient and so we stuck with him. We realized that what made us even more prescient in that experiential training was consultation. That's it. Consultation, effective, consistent, and knowing consultation. And so one person can add up that method that I'm going to annoy my teachers. I'm going to annoy my lectures later. They will make example with you that be like this guy, be like this lady who is always on pointing consultation, asking and doesn't carry him whether he or she has been criticised or not. Now remember from that intention, we were considered the most effective students ever went to that, that internship. It wasn't because we were brilliant or because we were smarter than others. I believe it was because of that effective consultation that helped us to learn more. Our report and presentation was even more impressive to our, our teachers and lecturers. And so you want to do that. Don't be afraid of your lectures. Don't be afraid to go in that stuff room or in that office and ask them wherever they are, asked them until some of them run away from you, but you know what? You're thinking yourself. The other one is research. Be a person of research proactively and subsequently, but actively. How, like I said. In the previous lesson, get across, outline, and start doing research. Started understanding what these topics are all about and how are they answering what this course is all about? And coupon doing that, always be ahead of your lectures. Always tried to be ahead, right? And that's how you research. Go to the Internet, asking people in the industry and ask important questions. Questions that you yourself, thing that they are relevant and believe that they will help you to always be The ahead and do proactive research. Also, do subsequent research, meaning when you come from a lecture, just do a further research on that topic. Even if you have been given introduction and a fury, started looking for examples. Start watching videos on YouTube or whatever. Start finding, finding other sources that will help you even get a better understanding of this dystopian. Don't limit yourself and you'll find out that by doing that, you make what you're being told in a lecture as small information that you can easily cross. And so that is 11 way to really study. This is a very effective method of studies and it needs someone who's really organized, someone who's really disciplined. The other thing that you need to do is master listening skills. This one, I love it because my friend has it. My friend would be one person when he gets in a lecture room. This guy, now, I know some of you can find it extremely, extremely, extremely extreme, or you can find it extreme, right? This guy, when he got into a lecture room, it doesn't go to toilet. He doesn't talk to anyone, is just focusing on what has been taught. If you try to distract them, they'll just give you a puzzle, something, a signal that says, no, I don't want to talk to you now. I want to listen attentively. And so he would do really, really well because it was a good listener, even socially is a good listener. And so you want to, you want to acquire or rather practice listening skills. Practice critical listening. Where you listen to the effect that you can even see what's wrong with what you're learning, right? Practice attentive listening where you, you pay attention to the pronunciation of words you read. And also appreciative listening because now you have to appreciate what ever you have been taught, right? So if you practice undistracted or in distracted listening skills, you'll find out that, Oh, so in a previous time I think I wasn't really mastering this. You see the difference. And so listening skills can be your strategy, your method of studies, where you listen with a motive that let me get everything. So that after this lecture, I don't even need to put more effort on further research or even finding more about what this is. I think I have a confident understanding of what I have been learning. And so that method can help you and you can practice it until you master it. Also, at the beginning of your course, this is a method that I also love because this one event it has to do with creativity and innovation. At the beginning of your course. If you now have an introduction and orientation and understanding what your cost is. Go and research about what are the all encompassing projects that need your cost, right? For instance, someone who is doing construction, right? It means that they can, they can do a building, a building structure, right? Just challenge yourself with a structure like a high-rise buildings, so to speak, has a high-rise building. And try to ask yourself, what are they involved? The topics that I need to understand in order to understand the full structure of this building. Or if I were given a task myself, torr torr supervised or rather to oversee the construction of a high-rise building. What skills do I need? What knowledge do I need? And give yourself that motive? Do an interdisciplinary project that will require you to use every topic, the two linear, right? And if you go to the internet or what, you consult people in the industry and ask them what can be the all encompassing projects that need my skill. So that whatever you are learning, you are, you are leaning as a view or edit text. If you are an investigator, you're investigating. Now I think I have this topic which will help me with this part of the structure. This topic will help with this, but there's no topic that will help me with this part of structure, maybe later, right? So you give yourself a mindset that will make you forget that you're learning, you're having fun in your learning by doing an interdisciplinary project that will require you to apply our other Giuliani tool to come up with a better model of that strikes. And so the other strategy or the other method that I loved, but this one, it requires effort. One requires you to be extremely disciplined, is bookkeeping. Now, preferably, I would suggest that you have notes in your tablet rather than bookkeeping as hot material, right? But even had maturity is true. But keep a bookkeeping style of studies and I'm going to show what bookkeeping is. I call it bookkeeping because I adopted a lot. It is where you yourself, you have your own notes separate from the node that you receive from the platform that is giving you information. What do I mean? I mean, you understand that whatever you're learning, you don't have to code it as it is. For instance, when you come from a lecture, adapt summary bookkeeping, where you have a book and you summarize what you have learned in that lecture. Summary book way. You, you record the date and the subject and the topic. Then you under that, you put a summary of every lecture that you're getting. With that it will help you really understand what you, what you learn. And so bookkeeping helps in that Heather question book. Another way of bookkeeping, a Christian book, where you record the questions that you ask yourself about the topic. Where you record your questions that students ask in class or in a lecture. And also you record the questions that your lectures ask. And also when you are interacting with your friends, acquaintances, and other people may be sharing fun facts about what your steady, your questions that they ask you, record them in this book. And those questions, you'll find that that is summarize the whole topic. And if you can answer those questions, you can actually say you have a confidence and confidence understanding of that, that topic understanding also remembering that you're not leaning to answer questions as such, but learning to overconfident understanding of that topic enough to appropriated to improve life, to solve your own problems. I trust your own needs and help other people as well. So bookkeeping is very important. Heavy, heavy, heavy new vocab, vocab bookkeeping way, every vocabulary, every new vocabulary to hear from people or you learn from where you're reading. You're recording in a day, known recorded with don't record it with definition as such, but just recorded today I lend this new vocab. And it means, it means this. Also give yourself a value or some kind of a rule that I will not record one vocabulary without understanding it. And so heavy book of new vocabularies that you, that you are lifting. Heavy book of new terminology that you are learning that are related to the cost that you are studying. And you're finding out that these things, they make your studying very, very easy. Also, you know what, you can make it even fun. You can have an album, whether it's a hot album or a visual album way you, you keep pictures. One of the things that you're learning, if possible, have pictures of the album. Those pictures don't label them by their names, but make sure that you know them by their names. Sometimes go through that album and keep naming them. This is called one is called to this code three, it makes a study more fun. It also gives you a picture of what what you're learning is. And some bookkeeping is more effective, strategic in itself. Because you kept summaries in the questions in there. You will find out that it is actually engulfed the entire course. You're listening, and you're up ahead, always, easily understanding what you are once you do it. The last method that I want to share with you that I proved to be very effective is investigating five questions. Whatever to pick your study, whatever topic you do. Investigate these five questions. A topic, if you, if you, if you can analogically call a topic like a bank of answers to this five questions. And find out if. This topic and answer these five questions are, how does this topic answer these five questions? You'll find out that you have summarized the whole topic. And if that topic answer some of these questions, then find out how it answer the remaining questions. And you'll find out that you have actually summarized your whole topics. What are these five questions? What, where, why, and how? And this is how you ask them, especially under any topic. Why is this topic all about? Now, when you go in a lecture room, now you're listening with that expectation. What is this topic all about? Right? And instead of you feeling like you're leaning, you feel inquisitive. You feel like you're curious. What is this Tobago all about? You want to know and you really know. Then where does it apply, what its application, especially in the industry, in, in people, in their socio-economic development, in the infrastructure. Where does it apply? And if you investigate that when you get in the lecture, where does this topic apply? Where does it apply, even in my goals? And then find out that forgetting you're leaning in and now you're investigating any important information. And the other one is who benefit from it? Who benefit from this topic, right? Who benefit from It's this topic? Then make you make example with what I've seen in some countries. Do you know that in some countries there are companies who don't understand what engineering is all about and yet they needed to know what to do No, the application of the topic, it's very important because if we don't know that we need engineers, we don't even know what an engineer is. If I'm a businessman, I need an engineer and I don't even know what an engineer does or an engineer, but I don't really know how that applies to my company. I'm missing I'm missing a lot. And so the other one is, why is it important? Why is it important to me? Why is it important to the cost that unsteady? Why is this topic important even to the people, right? If you've investigated the Ohio question, then you will have summarized the topic you have given yourself is when it comes to pressure now you become an investigator of information. You want to EN information. My product told me that he lend more when he find out about what interests him, then when he supposed to sit in a formal setting and expect to be taught. But the thing that he find for himself, he learned quicker. So you want to move from a former mode of study, boring mode to an exciting motorway. You say, yeah, I want to know why, I want to know how I want to know where, how can this topic helped me? How can it help me? You have to also be self-focused when it comes to any topic, how does it help me? I know it has to help me, but how if you give yourself that perspective, you have actually giving yourself an interesting aspect. You are now interested in that subject, even though you are not interested at first or you may have not been interested now UI, because you now want to know how does it benefit me? If you investigate these five questions in your studies, you'll find out that you have summarized the whole topic. And a whole topic is summarized and now you have confident understanding of it. And any other question that can be asked here is a sub-question to these five questions. 11. Tutorials & Tests: In this lesson, I'm going to share with you strategies in the aspect of tutorials and tests. Now let's remember. Tutorials and tests are not there to just give us a great title us with best performing students or poor performance students. They help us, they are scale that help us inform us whether we're studying or we're struggling in it. More, to improve in our studying, to be more serious or keep it up, be consistent. So they help us in that regard. If we generalize that, they help us to really see if we are really, really leaning. And so we should be excited with tutorials and tests. Really, we should be excited when we are having a test because they are going to teach you something. Sometimes you need their help because self judgment can be deceiving until you have a test or a tutorial or an assignment, then you know that you're really learning all you are behind to some extent. And so that will even help you to make improvements where necessary. Myself, what they did, the strategy that I used while studying is outset my own questions. And I'll make sure that their standard of hardness is far surpassing as compared to the ones in their general academia. So that when I answered the one in the academia, I find them easy. So those ones that I set for myself, they will more like pushed me to put more effort in studying to answer them. And I will say that as a way of illustration, but we don't study to answer their questions. We studied to know. When you study to answer the questions, make sure that you really know the topic, you understand the topic, and at the end, you have confident understanding of what the topic is all about. So this is how you should approach this strategy of tutorials and n trials. Have many tutorials. Tutorials from other students on from the school, Gather tutorials and try to answer them without knowing anything. As soon as you get to the school, as soon as you get to. If you're a new student, make sure that you have tutorials and tests and answer them based on your own opinion. Even before you go to any lecture rooms, start answering them and see if your opinions can somehow come close to the correct answers and answer them and then record their answers. And then while you are now learning, keep on answering them. Even after learning a topic. Answered your question relating to the topic. And then compare those three and you will see the improvement and you will discover some wisdom and some trends and it will even make it more interesting. I believe it's very interesting to answer a question, a question about a topic you have no clue. What is it all about? Just answering, just trying to understand If you with your own independent opinions, how close can you come to this topic? Some of things can surprise you. They can really, really surprised you. And remember, there are times where I answered during class, I answered very difficult questions, but in my mind I was giving my opinion. You don't know how smart you are until you do that. And then if you realize that you know and you got it right, you don't even need to learn it. You already know it. In fact, it will be hard for you to forget about it because now you've got it. So this is how you strategize as regards to tutorials and questions. And like I said in the previous lesson, heavier own book of questions where you know your record questions that you feel are important and if you know how to answer those questions, then you are actually summarizing the whole topic that you are learning. 12. Knowledge: So I'm going to share with you also a strategy based on the fifth aspect of learning, which is knowledge. Knowledge is very interesting. You can just say, I'm generalizable in a topic that has to be some signals. There has to be some pinpoint that show that this person really is not eligible or skillful in this topic or aspect. And so there are some things that you need to know and need to practice to enhance. And also to show yourself or prove to yourself that you really not eligible. The first one is confidence. Be confident. If you know, then you're confident in understanding that topic. And what you want to do is start using the knowledge that volunteering to help other students, especially those students who are struggling, but don't show them that you see that they're struggling with. Just just be kind enough to just try to help them and see how far you can go with that. By adopting that style of helping others. It is helping you to understand the topic better and also see where you can explain it or wave and confident with it. That is a strategy that you really, really wanted to. And also try to find out how this topic can help you to help others with knowledge. What do you suggest in other people's aspects? Life aspects, where you can actually suggest solutions. Start doing that and see how knowledgeable you are. And that strategy will really help you be a scaled to whether you're really learning or you need to still be, still improve on, go back to check some things and if you do that, you'll be really, really thankful. And also consider other sources. Always consider other sources. You are enrolled in one location leaning one thing when you know that, you know, then tried to get other sources. Who who who explained that, explain the same topic and see if you still get it. And that is how you strategize. As far as this aspect of knowledge is consent. 13. Innovation & Creativity: In this lesson, I'm going to share with you strategies student that you need to adopt in the aspirin. The sixth aspect of learning, which is innovation and creativity. Innovation and creativity to remember, is appropriation of knowledge and skill that you have and contributed in solving other people are problems, are really improving the environment around you, changing the world around you, so to speak. So you don't want to just lend skill. You don't want to just have knowledge. You want to see this knowledge for you coming up with new models, new systems, new ideas, right? So what do you want to do? You want to position yourself and try to come up with projects and try to position yourself in other industries. Just volunteer somewhere, get some internship somewhere, or volunteer somewhere where, you know for sure that your creativity and innovation will be demanded as far as the cost of just studying is consent. And so what you want to do is to start investigating and observing existing models exist in development infrastructure. Gadgets, whatever is there in this live interaction, just try even to investigate the floss based on the knowledge and the skills that you have tried to look around you and see what's wrong with the system, what needs to be improved. What can I come up with? What can give more speed to this? What can be, what can give more effectiveness to this? What can give efficiency to this? What are the problems that people are faced with that I can solve now with my knowledge and skills. And while you're leaning, do it for free because you're, you're getting experience and you are even positioning yourself where you have no choice but to be creative and innovative about what you really, really lend. And so think about every person we came up, we came up with every new model, a plane, for instance. You understand that someone thought about flying hundreds of people over the sea using a metal that is more heavy than even your house that is more heavy than the heaviest thing that you know for sure you can throw in the end, it stays there. This person has to master, engineer that concept. And so that's creativity, your knowledge, your acquisition of skills. What can it do in the environment around you, in the industry? Around how can you impact the environment you are with the skills. And that's why we are. You answer those questions to yourself and you want to do something and the more you do that and even getting people's suggestions. Where do you think I knew to apply this? Especially people who have even gone ahead of you, where we haven't done much in the industry. Asking them, what, what is this topic about in the industry are discussed in the industrial? What more can I do? Because even in your course, you may think that you really understand your costs until you reach in the industry. And you realize that your cost is more than what you believe it is, and you can actually do many things with it. So if you adopt this practical strategy in your leadership, you find out that you get a living while you're studying. Because like I said in the previous lesson, is not about graduation, is about no ledger that people who are trapped out nodding because not because you got to drop out because they said, I don't like school, let me go out. But because they were working on the models or site in their models where a success. This people who dropped out to give more time to their successful models, right? And so you want to be in that position where you start doing things because now you are learning and while you're waiting to graduate, you know what's happening. The information in the scale that you're getting, they are forming layers. Layers. And by the time you graduate, it all require another effort to bring the bottom layer to the top so that you can use it. But if your practical learning, you are innovative and creative while you are learning, it's gonna be very hard for you to lose information or lose what you're getting. And so in the last, in the last lesson, we are going to deal with our personal achievements as our last topic in this course. 14. Self Achievement: In this last lesson, in this course of leadership skills are studying skills. I'm going to share strategies in this last aspect of learning, which is solve achievement or achieving your goals. Achieving goals than a personal. So understand that you're also studying for yourself. So it's not a selfish thing. To benefit yourself with your studies, start doing something for yourself. And to put it. In summary, I would say make a living with what your study. And again, do not wait until you graduate. No, architectural students are known for making a living even before they graduate, for instance, they started throwing plans for people. Is that really, really doing good? And some of them even drop out somewhere and then come back to that later. Why? Because now the clients are many, they need that time, they need achievement. So it is important for you to know that you don't have to wait to a certain stage of learning, or is there a certain stage of studies for you to start making a living out of what your study. If you study, you're good and you can muster one topic. That topic is enough to make a living out of is a matter of you being creative and it's a matter of you going beyond your limits and consulting and taking up industries and C are investigating way you can contribute and make a living out of what you are, what you're learning. So learning helps you to solve, develop it also help you to reach your full potential self-actualization. That's why we learn we want to achieve and we want to get things in a legal way. We don't want it to be thieves, right? We're going to get things in a legal way to get money. And then money help us to buy things, to buy a property to my cost, and to make our lives more comfortable. Yes, that's that's our aim. We are studying to get certain needs. But understand that to get the setting needs doesn't require study, but the study make it easy for you to go there because you need to read, to be able to read, to able to calculate, to be able to understand concepts, to be able to understand many things. If you have what people need and people will give you the money because you have what they need and that money will help you achieve your goals. The simple concept that doesn't need to be explained, but understand that don't wait until you graduate to study business, to start a project, to design a model, and to go in the industry and started working there. Let the reality determine how long you're going to study. Yes. I know it's risky to say that, but I believe if you consider all these aspects, you might find yourself studying and working, studying and Wiki, and you're succeeding value study. One thing doesn't have to wait for another, especially because topic by topic, you're getting an important information. And so that was all about learning skills. And I hope all these skills help you. Thank you for your time. 15. Class Project: Thank you for your time and for your class project. Just choose three of the strategies that I've shared with you or method of study that I shared with you that you think can suit you and then practice them for about a week and then write me a four-line progress report of the things that you saw them change or improve in your studies.
