learning how to learn

I've taken the course two times now (although the first time I believe it was just "Learning How to Learn").

Although this is promoted as a somewhat simpler version of the popular MOOC "Learning How To Learn", I found the lectures, and particularly the examples and explanations much easier to understand and apply than those of the more detailed course.

This course is a good supplemental resource for the book, Learning How to Learn.

learning how to learn for youth is one of the best course i had learned it's explain how we can learn Easley and how to remember our important information and how should we reward our brain and give us a chance.

Completed Learning How to Learn, building upon the foundation of barb's old book LH2L, this new yet to the point course is very much a refresher and interactive and creatively hone from the previous one.

It's a great course, I've also completed the previous course "learning how to learn".

This course is a shorter version of a similar course(Learning How to Learn) by Barb & Terry.

I want to take more classes from them and continue learning how to learn.

As an adult graduate of Learning How to Learn, this was a great refresher and I'm excited to recommend it to the kids in my life.

And it is very funny way of learning how to learn.

I don't know why this course exists when <Learning How to Learn: Powerful mental tools to help you master tough subjects> is already there.

Very intersting for student and the parents Although this is promoted as a somewhat simpler version of the popular MOOC "Learning How To Learn", I found the lectures, and particularly the examples and explanations much easier to understand and apply than those of the more detailed course.

I had taken the Learning How to Learn and decided to listen to the version "for Youth" because I teach and want to implement these learning ideas.

Although I'm not that young I found the course was a fun way to remember the key points of Learning how to learn, which are really useful in learning.

Thank you Professor Barbara Oakley, Professor Terrence Sejnowski, Greg Hammons and Cousera.

Thanks Dr. Barbara Oakley and Dr. Terrence Sejnowski Embedding these ideas into institutions that do little to support them currently could be a sea change in the education culture--transforming a conformist and relatively unproductive system into one that supports creativity, multi-field proficiency, better literacy, and the joy of learning.

This course is very helpful and full with too many important information which can help you to easily learn new something It was very interesting to know new things about the brain and diferents tchniques to learn and be a better student , and I understood that be a slow learner have advantages amazing, perfect and helped me a lot to improve my brain to solve a lot of complicated problems I could not solve it before.

slow learner

First let me say that I am well beyond being a youth but, I have learned so much on this course with how to give yourself a chance to learn even when you are a slow learner.

I always thought that there is no place in schools for a slow learner and now I have learned that there is more slow learners that make it to the top because they are a slow learner.
