Learning Hacks is a study method course based on insights from a variety of disciplines, particularly that of Mind, Brain and Education (MBE), to teach students the fundamental truths of learning. Many myths prevail when it comes to studying. This course is aimed at uncovering these myths while teaching kids how to study more effectively.
Who is it for?
The Study Methods course is designed specifically for primary and high school learners. It is aimed at learners who often have the following concerns:
Am I studying effectively?
Could my time be used better when it comes to studying?
How can I spend less time studying, yet remember my work?
The course is also available to educators and parents. The parents’ course helps parents understand what their children will learn during their course and how they can strengthen their knowledge and skills at home.
The educators’ course takes a more in-depth look at the resources behind the course and how to implement the learning strategies and knowledge in their classrooms.
