QUEST OF LEARNING
What is learning? We all agree that learning is not just memorization of information, its so much more. In my mind learning is transformational, it changes the way that we think. Learning creates new structures within the brain.
It is the best investment you can make and will enrich the rest of your life.
Learning involves memory, let's dive into the three levels of memory and then explore a technique for learning.
Working Memory Declarative Memory and Procedural Memory are the 3 levels of memory in your brain.
is short-term and electrical. Think of it as the RAM in the biological computer. It is imagination, conscious awareness, the thought you are thinking "now."
The three functions of WORKING MEMORY are:
A.The VISUOSPATIAL SKETCHPAD - responsible for the manipulation and temporary storage of visual and spatial information, allowing you to "see" things in your mind.
B. The ARTICULATORY LOOP - a phonological memory store which holds acoustic or speech-based material and rehearses sound in the mind.
C. The CENTRAL EXECUTIVE - a high-level messenger responsible for determining which sensory information is of sufficient salience, or importance, to warrant passage into the prefrontal cortex, the foremost part of the brain responsible for planning, decision-making, and judgment.
2. DECLARATIVE MEMORY is the second or "intermediate" level of memory.
The two kinds of DECLARATIVE MEMORY are:
A. EPISODIC MEMORY - in which you have not only the memory, but can remember something about the setting in which the memory was learned.
B. SEMANTIC MEMORY -you cannot recall the context of the initial learning.
3. PROCEDURAL MEMORY is the third and "deepest" level of memory.
PROCEDURAL MEMORY is broken into 3 groups:
A. CONDITIONED REFLEXES - Stomping the brake when your car is about to collide with something.
B. SKILLS AND HABITS - Playing the piano, swinging a golf club, etc
C. EMOTIONAL ASSOCIATIONS - Branding; The implantation of an associative memory with a recall cue.
Here is the learning equation based on the work of Prof. A. Baddeley CBE, FRS, FBA from University of York.
PROCEDURAL MEMORY IS THE PRODUCT OF SALIENCE X REPETITION
Any book that you read, any course or any information you wish to own, one of the best things you can do is to repeat the book or course three times.
The first time you will miss eighty percent of the information, the second time you will say that the book or course has new information in it and the third time you will own it.
To quote Dale Carnegie "The second time you read a book and you find something new in the book it is not that the book has changed, its you."
All our training has been designed to be transformational and to create long lasting results.
