Ignite Your Learning: Using Brain Science to Get the Most from Today and Future Learning Opportunities
You’ve got a full day of learning ahead of you. Problem – due to biological constraints, human beings can only undertake roughly 3.5 hours of new learning each day. How, then, should you approach this professional conference? During this session, Jared will dive into brain science to determine how you can gear your learning ability only towards meaningful information and get the most from the day ahead.
Why do humans have a learning limit? What does it feel like to access the learning machinery? How can we recognise this process and use our biology to alert us when an idea is worth writing down and maintaining?
Three key takeaways:
1. Individuals require the formation of semantic memories before they can bring their skills to bear on a particular piece of information
2. Recall and context are the two most important elements in semantic memory formation
3. Human beings cannot read while listening to someone speak simultaneously (nor can they write)
