Research showed how we learn and remember best. Of course this is only an average and might not fit an individual. Actually scientists say that we consciously remember only 20% of what we hear, 30% of what we see, 50% of what we hear and see, 70% what we hear and see and if we talk about it with others and even 90% what we hear, see, talk about and do ourselves.  We like to refer to the best learning method as a multi sensory experience.

During our Learning Methods Workshops we focus our efforts to explain how the human brain works.  From proven research and understanding how brain cells link and how different parts of the brain works, we help to make a difference, changing, improving, encouraging, guiding, counselling people who are and want to continuously learn.  Knowing how your brain works also helps to know and understand yourself.  Men and women's brains differ quite a lot as well, understanding these differences will help to understanding the differences in sexes as well.  The left hand and right hand of your brain also control different parts and functions.

7 Sectors and Functions of the brain cortex are: (front to back to sides)

  1. Pre-Frontal Cortex (Social behaviour, Abstract reasoning, higher cognitive functions)
  2. Pre-Motor Cortex (Muscle Coordination)
  3. Motor Cortex (Muscle Control, Muscle Coordination)
  4. Somatosensory Cortex (Touch)
  5. Visual Association Areas (Visual)
  6. Visual Cortex (Vision)
  7. Auditory Cortex (Hearing)

7 Areas in the Limbic System, the areas in your brain involved with processing emotions:

  1. Cerebral Cortex (sensory processing, abstract reasoning, storing & retrieving memories)
  2. Hippocampus (creating mental maps, forming and retrieving memory)
  3. Cerebellum (physical coordination)
  4. Amygdala (seat of emotions)
  5. Olfactory Bulbs (centre of emotion, connects 1, 4, 2 - memory of smell)
  6. Thalamus (sensory memories stored and routed to the cortex)
  7. Corpus Callosum (bridge connecting left & right hemispheres)

Research showed that there are small brain cells in the brain making new connections as we learn new things.  The more you learn the more cell connections are made. Similarly, these connections grow weak if you do not use them frequently.  To make many cell connections, one should try to learn using the "multi sensory experience" also by using the following:

4 Learning Methods:

  1. by basic reference (anchor foundation concept)
  2. by repetition (rope concept)
  3. by new association (net concept)
  4. by emotion (fire concept)

We very often need to un-learn things as well.  Conditions, processes technology or equipment might have changed, meaning we need to adapt, Change and learn new things.  It might also well be that we were taught incorrectly and need to un-learn incorrect behaviours and believes. Un-learning requires special attention and different learning techniques.
