Cheery Friday Greetings to our Learning How to Learners!

What can you do to increase your study hours?

A student asked this question, “What can I do to increase my study hours?” on Quora—click here to see the great answer by one of our Learning How to Learners, Vineet Raj.

We Swamped Rafa’s Servers

Learning How to Learners were so enthusiastic that we swamped Rafa’s server last week with requests for his excellent daily planner. He’s updated the planner here, and now also has a Spanish version, so feel free to check it out—especially if you couldn’t get on last week. 🙂 )

Learning How to Learner writes a wonderful book!

Guitar teacher Brian Parham took Learning How to Learn and was inspired to use many of these approaches, (which grow from the findings of some of the world’s leading researchers), in his teaching. In fact, Brian now begins many of his private guitar lessons, seminars, and workshops by overviewing some of the simple yet effective learning techniques described in Learning How to Learn—chunking, deliberate practice, spaced repetitions, and the importance of rest and relaxation. Brian notes, “Without a doubt, these basic concepts can shave years off of the guitar learning curve!” Using timed sessions of the Pomodoro technique on his daily commute, Brian has written a powerful book: The Ultimate Rock Guitar Dojo for Kids: White Belt Edition. If you’re wanting to learn the guitar, or improve your techniques for teaching guitar, check it out!

Have a happy week in Learning How to Learn!

Barb, Terry, and the entire Learning How to Learn team
