David Brown Science Teacher
Learning from science • The study found only 2 universally successful techniques
Golden rule number 1 • Test yourself • Past papers • Summaries • Write. Cover. Repeat. • Any method where an answer is known and you can check your own knowledge or understanding.
Golden rule number 2 • Spread out your revision • Revision is a process – not the end point • Leave time between sessions • Be clear about when you will do what
More science! • A lesson learned from science and computer games. • 850,000 online gamers • “people who leave more than 24 hoursbetween their first five attempts at the game and their second five attempts score as highly, on average, as people who have practiced 50% more than them.”
In summary • Test yourself • Find which method works best for you • Understand your stuff first • Spread out your revision • Begin early • Early means early! • Process not product
