|1. We filter
new information through our preconceptions.
3. Depth is better than breadth.
--Father Guido Sarducci's "Five Minute University"4. Different people learn differently
--Building a framework for analyzing new problems
--Active strategies (e.g., outlining, discussing, diagramming) generally better than passive strategies5. People with "growth mindsets" learn better than people
--Specific strategies to try (focusing on 3 points in each class, making a connection between material and something in your life)
--Goal: elaborative encoding-->move to long-term memory storage
with "fixed mindsets."
6. Thinking about how you learn best helps you learn better.
7. Students listen differently to teachers.
--"Listening energy" is limited
--Some are "people-oriented listeners" (non-judgmental and caring), while others are "action-oriented listeners" (want speakers to be concise and get to key information quickly)
