Everyone uses their senses to learn.

Enhancing learning using sensory specific words

Most people have an unconscious successful strategy for learning that is triggered when the information is presented in a preferred way. Teachers normally cover the different learning styles by telling, showing and then getting a pupil to experience what they need to learn. This can work while the student can experience what they need to learn. Many things cannot be experienced in a classroom due to expense, location or that the concept is a theoretical model.

Some schools go so far as to teach students in groups labelling them as visual, auditory or kinaesthetic learners. At the same time many teachers miss out on stimulating the inner world where the students make their meaning of what is being taught. I use this technique in science lessons in the form of guided multi-sensory experiences: With a year 7 group I taught them photosynthesis. Memorizing Dates - How To Remember Dates For A Test.

Daniel Tammet painted this picture of how he sees the first 20 digits of pi. He set the European record for memorizing and reciting digits in 2004. The Exploratorium in San Francisco hosts an annual parade on Pi Day, where fans of the number make handmade number signs and march in order of pi's digits (3.14 ... ). The Exploratorium is installing this "pi shrine" on the sidewalk in front of its new location in San Francisco on Pi Day 2013. Pi Memorisation. This section will help you memorize Pi.

Pi Memorisation

Pi is defined, in Euclidean geometry, as a constant which is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. Why Pi? Pi is a challenge to memorize because the number of digits in it are infinite, and there's no discernable pattern anywhere to the order of the digits. There are many other constants with these qualities (most notably e, the base of natural logarithms, and the square root of 2), but since Pi is usually introduced in geometry before other similar numbers, Pi is the most recognizable of these numbers. Recognition memory. Recognition memory is a subcategory of declarative memory.[1] Essentially, recognition memory is the ability to recognize previously encountered events, objects, or people.

Recognition memory

When the previously experienced event is reexperienced, this environmental content is matched to stored memory representations, eliciting matching signals.[2] Recognition memory can be subdivided into two component processes: recollection and familiarity, sometimes referred to as "remembering" and "knowing", respectively.[1] Recollection is the retrieval of details associated with the previously experienced event.

In contrast, familiarity is the feeling that the event was previously experienced, without recollection. Teaching listening comprehension. The Patterns Method of Plant Identification: Learn to recognize plant family patterns as a tool to identify new plants. The Patterns Method of Plant IdentificationAn Easier Way to Identify Plantsby Thomas J.

The Patterns Method of Plant Identification: Learn to recognize plant family patterns as a tool to identify new plants.

Elpel, author of Botany in a Day The study of botany is the study of patterns in plants. Related plants have similar characteristics, and botanists have placed them in groups according to these patterns of similarity. In essence, botanists have created a filing system where all plants with one pattern are placed in one file folder, all the plants with another pattern are placed in another folder, and so forth. The better you can recognize these patterns, the better you will be able to identify plants.

Unfortunately, very few people know about these patterns when they start identifying plants. On the other hand, many people take college courses and learn to use a flora with a key. Using Pattern Recognition to Enhance Memory and Creativity - Maria Popova. "If seven friends in turn rapidly told him their phone numbers, he could calmly wait until the last digit was spoken and then, from memory, key all seven friends' numbers into his phone's contact list without error.

Using Pattern Recognition to Enhance Memory and Creativity - Maria Popova

" It seems to be the season for fascinating meditations on consciousness, exploring such questions as what happens while we sleep, how complex cognition evolved, and why the world exists. Joining them and prior explorations of what it means to be human is The Ravenous Brain: How the New Science of Consciousness Explains Our Insatiable Search for Meaning (public library) by Cambridge neuroscientist Daniel Bor in which, among other things, he sheds light on how our species' penchant for pattern-recognition is essential to consciousness and our entire experience of life.
