"The purpose of these videos is to teach students the basic cognitive principles they need to understand in order to become effective learners. The lack of adequate preparation of high school graduates for college level work is of tremendous concern. In 2011, only 25% of high school seniors met all four ACT College Readiness Benchmarks in math, science, English, and reading. That means a large percentage of high school graduates are capable of college level work, but ill equipped to handle it. The success of these students depends on their ability to transform themselves into effective college learners. The video series is intended to help students accomplish that. The videos present a comprehensive, empirically validated framework of principles on how people learn that enables students to develop their own learning strategies and skills. There is really no other resource like it. The videos translate cognitive theory and research into simple, accessible, and practical practices that students can use in their study. The videos are broken down into brief modules, so that students can choose the ones that are most relevant to their needs, and each module is designed to be clear and engaging." Liberty Staff
5 Video Guide: How to Study Long and Hard and Still Fail…or How to Get the Most Out of Studying.
The overall theme of the videos is if students use ineffective or inefficient ways of studying, they can study long and hard and still fail; but if they use effective strategies, they will get the most learning out of your study time and be more likely to succeed. Each video lasts 7-8 minutes.
Video 1: Beliefs That Make You Fail…Or Succeed
The first video examines common mistaken beliefs students often possess that undermine their learning. The video tries to correct those misconceptions with accurate beliefs about learning.
Video 2: What Students Should Understand About How People Learn.
The second video introduces a simple but powerful theory of memory, Levels of Processing, that can help students improve their study.
Video 3: Cognitive Principles for Optimizing Learning.
The third video operationalizes the concept of level of processing into four principles that students can use to develop effective study strategies.
Video 4: Putting the Principles for Optimizing Learning into Practice.
The fourth video applies the principles of deep processing to common study situations, including note taking and highlighting while reading.
Video 5: I Blew the Exam, Now What?
This video addresses what students should and should not do when they earn a poor grade on an exam or quiz.
