15:45 - 16:01 'Would you ever sing a song once and think you knew that song? No Test yourself, work that homework problem several times over several days until the solution flows like a song from your mind'
Comment from : Andrew Dong

I failed civil engineering in mining I became a hiperrealist sculptor and couldn't keep going because even though I was good, I loathed the work I'm finishing business school and I'm unsatisfied I'm always the worst student in the room, no matter the class, even sports I've been suicidal for the past 10 years I punched my left eye blind, slit my left wrist, lost 2 molars and got tmj disfunction I'm currently 27 and I'm ashamed of who I am ¿Do I have any chance of recovering?

Sometimes we need to unlearn to learn new ways to learn?

Not Again
Plot twist : you go to a professional for answers and you explain to them that you have a problem and go into details of what that problem isbrAfter a while they respond to tell you that you have no problem in fact you are actually part of the solution to other problems and that you have the rare syndrome of solution manifestation As you thought you had complex problems regarding the way you think as well as your daily routine this expert explains to you that you are different from others and you brain tricked you all along into thinking you had problems while it was secretary coming up with solutions It did this by changing the label on the files so it can find extra time to do so So each time you felt worried and anxious you were just being creative Enjoy the rest of your day and trust your brain cells to take care of you as you improve your diet, exercise, sleep well and keep learning Soon you will be surprised by how much you can actually learn by simply learning how to be efficient and creative

1:40 she begins to realise something because she went to the edge of the world to meet her husband and I realised that I have actually watched this video already Or I have the most intense deja vu ever My guess is that I watched it on a different device /yt account witch is a bad habit Yet some videos deserve to be watched more than once

1i need ted talks to be in a format of anime and dopamine inducing effects Sometimes I really get bored watching these Ted talks as well as distracted So I want to change my brain and I wanna learn so basically I'm watching so much ted talk But I still struggle while watching them so right here I'm writing a comment while watching and I did not pause So I will have to rewind like 2 minutes I love ted talk I'm so glad the audience is laughing that is encouraging

learning is knowing which sentences to skip, which sentences to read halfway, which sentences to slow down and read and which articles after reading the topic name or abstract to skip reading the rest of the article

Comment from : Syrio1989

I try to find what I don't know or don't understand and list them so I can learn them later But procrastinating gets the better of mebrbrbrTry to see patterns in things Do you think this thing is kinda similar to that other thing Or does this change if I revamp the way I'm doing it It's hard to see the ideal thing but if you keep changing it you'll probably see the system on how the thing works See patterns and change them into the things you want them to turn into

Comment from : ice circle

I just want to thank Barbara Oakley, she really taught me how to become more fluent in any arithmetic course while coming from a person who has always been a natural at reading, writing, history, geography, but anything else in math I would be inadequate She taught me the importance of “it’s not understanding that leads to fluency, it’s focusing on fluency that leads to understanding” That, plus her encouragement to consistently practice, memorize, & repetition of the steps, has made me an A student in my pre calculus class this semester (& I used to be a c student in any stem classes at best) It took a lot of hustle, but feels soo good to get real results that makes it pay off Barbara Oakley was the final touch to expanding my horizon on mathematics Her quote at the end “Don’t just focus on your passions, but expand your horizons & the rewards are tremendous” is very true with me in mathematics Much gratitude to Barbara 🙏🏼

I am happy I found the video
Comment from : athul_c137

I graduated top of my class and all of these techniques are the same techniques I used I would redo homework until I could do them twice correctly then repeat with all homework My tests would contain the same questions from the homework Tests become easy this way Having classmates ask you to explain concepts made me just recall and force me to practice more I have never met a genius The barrier to actually learning is entirely emotional (you don't think you can do it, you don't see the benefit now, other things are more important) Everyone can do this The only things I don't learn are the ones I don't want to put the effort The talk was very insightful I'd like to see one for how to motivate yourself to want to learn something that you don't want to learn

Carl Lelandt
My K through 12 school years were pretty much the same as Ms Oakley's Again tried math (intro algebra) at junior college, and failed Then I got mind-boggling lucky! Transferred to a 4 yr college, where it was learn math or forget college In a class where we only needed to show up if we couldn't figure stuff out on our own, I went from zip to pre-calc level in algebra in about 4 months!, And it was a "cake-walk!" I owed my awesome success to a 5 book programmed instruction beginning algebra series authored by Robert Tetiev, for the Encyclopedia Britannica Educational Corp, produced during the late 1960's Would love to find some used copies of that series But no luck My math failure in public school had totally undermined my sense of self worth, self esteem, etc
Comment from : Carl Lelandt

I'm coincidentally doing focus and diffuse mode back and forth when I was studying English I usually read the material around 30 minutes and then take a rest after that while drinking some coffee and do some browsing i felt relaxed and it felt really good studying like that i didn't know it was one of the good ways for learning very good

National STEM Honor Society (NSTEM)
We at NSTEM are constantly encouraging girls and boys, men and women to study STEM fields Many struggle to learn and study correctly Knowing about the two learning modes- focus and diffuse modes- is important and vital Your idea of focusing for 25 minutes and then doing something relaxing and fun is wonderful and should be used when learning and teaching

Sensei von Wistalia
I have to say i disagree to some points Contineously making tests is not helping you and neither promoting homeworkbrbrUsually people cannot do their honework because of a lack of the teacher explaining it to them in a way they can understand and remember itbrAlso it does the opposit to relaxing and defuse modes Especially if we don't have a lot of time or too much to dobrbrGiving apropiet homework is also a skill for itself and only because a teacher finds some things or ways important that usually doesn't apply to the studentbrbrTesting ourself all the time even before we really know something is a big mistake but sadly standart school material works exactly that waybrbrAnd btw something very obvious: if you would learn a language by flashcards of vocabulary you would never able to speak and understand the languagebrIt totally erases the context of any information which is the worst you can do to your brain

Pomodoro technique has helped me deal with my ADHD I started with 25 minutes at a time with work assignments and studying Now I focus 1 hour at a time My attention span grew within 2 weeks I kept my self consistent every day and with dedication, I was able to improve my attention span I did add 10 minutes every couple of days which is how I was able to keep focus for an hour My advice is to keep persistence, discipline, and gradually add time to your task

abdelhadi farhat
the 25 min rule she discussed in the video is actually something i came up with myself, and it actually works sometimes, it's like a work-reward thing the problem is procrastinating with matters that does not have some sort of a deadline this is the real challenge for a lazy procrastinating person like me :)
Comment from : abdelhadi farhat

Summary: brbrIf you find yourself, as you're focusing on something trying to learn a new concept or solve a problem, and you get stuck, you want to turn your attention away from that problem and allow the diffuse modes Those resting states, to do their work in the backgroundbrbrb*Procrastination => Pomodoro method*/bbr- 25min of work (with mindset *I'm going to work with focus attention for 25 minutes*) - 5min of some funbr- Relaxation is also an important part of the learning processbr===br- Exercise within a matter of a few days can increase our ability to both learn and to rememberbr- Test Tests are the best Test yourself all the time Give yourself little mini-testsbr- Recall The most effective technique is simply to look at a page, look away and see what you can recall Doing this, as it seems, helps build profound neural hooks that help enhance your understanding of the material The understanding alone is enough to build mastery of the material br- Practice and repetition in a variety of circumstances can you truly gain mastery over what you're learning
