Study steps 2

 


1.Find a good study spot. 
Gain control of your study space. You should feel comfortable so that studying is more enjoyable. If you hate sitting at a table in the library, then find somewhere much more pleasant, like your sofa or a beanbag chair on your floor. Try studying in comfortable clothes, like a cozy sweatshirt or yoga pants. The place where you study should be free from distractions and relatively quiet.
Don't choose a place so comfortable that you risk falling asleep. You want to be comfortable, not ready to fall asleep. A bed isn't a very good study spot when you're tired.
Traffic outside your window and quiet library conversations are fine white noise, but interrupting siblings and music blasting in the next room are not. You may want to go somewhere away from people who may provide distractions or ask them to keep quiet for a while.

2.Choose background music carefully. 

Some people prefer silence while they study, others prefer music in the background. Music can be beneficial to your studying by helping you be calm, elevating your mood, and motivating you. If you listen to music, stick to instrumental music, which is music that has no words like classical, movie scores, trance, or baroque.

If it doesn't distract you, listen to familiar music with words. Turn off anything that distracts you from your studying. You may be able to listen to rock music with words but not pop. Figure out what works for you.

Make sure to keep the music at a moderate to low volume. Loud music can distract you while quiet music can help you while studying.

Skip the radio. The commercials and the DJ's voice can bring you out of your study zone.

TVs can also distract you, so turn them off.


3.Listen to background sounds.

 Background sounds can help you "get in the zone" and focus on your studies without getting distracted. Natural sounds such as waterfalls, rain, thunder, and jungle sounds can give enough white noise to keep you focused and block out other sounds. There are many places online to find these kinds of sounds, including YouTube.


4.Keep the television turned off.

 Having the television on while you study is generally a bad idea. It can distract you a lot and make you focus on the TV show or movie instead of the book. Plus, voices are extremely distracting because it engages the language center of your brain.


5.Snack smart. 

Eat healthy, nutritional foods while you study instead of foods filled with sugar and fat. Go for energy-boosting foods, like fruit, or foods to make you feel full, like vegetables and nuts. If you need something sweet, eat dark chocolate. Drink water to keep you hydrated, and drink tea if you need a caffeine boost.

Avoid foods with high amounts of sugar and carbs, like instant noodles, chips, and candy. Don't drink energy drinks and sugary sodas; they contain high amounts of sugar which will cause you to crash. If you drink coffee, skip the sugar-heavy drinks.

Have your snacks prepared when you begin a study session so you don't get hungry and go rummaging for food.

Planning of study

 



When you sit down to study, how do you transfer that massive amount of information from the books and notes in front of you to a reliable spot in your mind? You need to develop good study habits. At first, it'll take a good deal of conscious effort to change your studying habits, but after a while, it'll become second nature, and studying will be easier to do.


1.  Manage Your time. 


Make a weekly schedule and devote a certain amount of time per day to studying. This can be an hour or even 3 hours in total. This will also improve your grades. That amount will vary depending on whether you're in high school or college, and also varies by field of study. Make sure you stick to your schedule as much as possible but don't be afraid to go off of plan sometimes to study more for the most recent upcoming exam. Make sure this study plan is realistic and not impossible. 


2. Pace yourself.


 Find the best speed for you to study and adjust accordingly concepts or classes will come to you more naturally, so you can study those more quickly. Other things may take you twice as long. Take the time you need and study at the pace you feel comfortable.


3.  Get enough rest.


Make enough time in your schedule to get enough sleep. Get a good night's sleep every night and you'll be making the best of your study time. This is important as you lead up to the test, and especially important right before you take the test. Studies have shown that sleep positively impacts test-taking by improving memory and attentiveness. Staying up all night studying may sound like a good idea, but skip the all-night cram session. If you study throughout the weeks, you won't need to cram anyway. Getting a good night's sleep will help you perform better. You would not feel drained or tired.


4. Clear your mind of anything that doesn't have to do with the topic you're studying. 


         If you've got a lot on your mind, take a moment to write yourself some notes about what you're thinking about and how you feel before you start studying. This will help to clear your mind and focus all your thoughts on your work.


5.Eliminate electronic devices.


             One of the worst distractions for studying is electronic devices. They are hooked up to social media, you receive texts through your phone, and your laptop is hooked to the internet. Silence your cell phone or keep it in your bag so it's not there to distract you if someone calls or texts you. If you can, don't open your laptop or connect it to the internet.


Study steps

 



1. Learn by “chunking”

If you’ve taken a psychology class, you may already be familiar with the idea of chunking. The theory is that people tend to remember things better when they learn related ideas in small chunks, rather than simply trying to cram all the details of a topic into their heads at once.

It’s all based on the capacity of the working memory and how our brains turn short-term memories into long-term ones. Psychologists have consistently shown that people can easily recall a string of numbers or names that is 5 to 9 objects long. That means the average person can repeat about 7 items back a few seconds after being given a list.

Students who cram may be taking in a lot of information at once, but since their working memories can’t hold all those facts, they tend to forget most of what they learn. One way to overcome knowledge loss by cramming is to chunk topics together. Research has demonstrated that subjects tend to remember more items on a list when they relate certain items on the list with others.

So if you find yourself in the (non-ideal) situation where you need to remember a large amount of information in a small amount of time, try to group facts together based on their characteristics. Or, find a pattern in the information that is meaningful to you to connect seemingly unrelated ideas.

2. Don’t fall victim to the Forgetting Curve

You’ve heard of learning curves, but have you ever heard the Forgetting Curve? Research shows that people are much more likely to be able to recall information from a one hour lecture when they review what they learned later on. And, not surprisingly, the more times one turns the information over in their mind, the longer they’ll remember it.

Like chunking, this hack is based on the functioning of the working memory. People take in an astounding amount of sensory information each day. Since not all of this information is important, the brain must decide what to hold on to and what to forget. One way the brain decides what takes priority is by paying more attention to information that it has processed multiple times.

You’re more likely to remember information from your lectures if you review what you’ve learned every day for a small amount of time everyday rather than cramming. If you don’t have time to review everything you’ve learned in a class everyday at least try to make sure you’ve looked at and actively processed a topic several times before a test.

One way to do this is to actively read the relevant material from your textbook before your lecture, take notes, and then review those notes that night before you go to sleep. Obviously, it’s helpful to look over your notes again before a test, and the more time you can find to review, the less you’ll be re-learning before your test. It can actually help save you time in the long run!

3. Exercise before you study (and consistently!)

Exercise has both long and short-term effects on cognition. When you exercise, your body interprets the physical stress as you fighting or fleeing an enemy and activates your sympathetic nervous system. In response, your brain is flooded with extra blood, rich in oxygen and nutrients, to make what it thinks could be life-saving decisions. It’s even been demonstrated that exercise can lead to neurogenesis, or the creation of new brain cells–a process previously thought impossible.

In addition, a brain structure called the hippocampus is stimulated during exercise. Research has shown that the hippocampus is important for reasoning and memory. Besides short-term boosts in cognition, regular exercise can actually slow down age-related shrinkage of the hippocampus.

Manegement

 


According to Steve Jobs, “Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.” By understanding and learning to apply these universal principles, you are more likely to excel as a manager in any organization. Read this blog to learn the five principles of great management. 

Principle No. 1: The Functions of Management

While managers often view their work as task or supervisory in orientation, this view is an illusion. 

At the most fundamental level, management is a discipline that consists of a set of five general functions: planning, organizing, staffing, leading and controlling. These five functions are part of a body of practices and theories on how to be a successful manager.

Understanding the functions will help managers focus efforts on activities that gain results. Summarizing the five functions of great management.

Planning: When you think of planning in a management role, think about it as the process of choosing appropriate goals and actions to pursue and then determining what strategies to use, what actions to take, and deciding what resources are needed to achieve the goals.

Organizing: This process of establishing worker relationships allows workers to work together to achieve their organizational goals.

Leading: This function involves articulating a vision, energizing employees, inspiring and motivating people using vision, influence, persuasion, and effective communication skills.

Staffing: Recruiting and selecting employees for positions within the company (within teams and departments).

Controlling: Evaluate how well you are achieving your goals, improving performance, taking actions. Put processes in place to help you establish standards, so you can measure, compare, and make decisions

Principle No. 2: The Types and Roles of Managers within the Organization

Organizational structure is important in driving the business forward and every organization has a structure. No matter the organizationally specific title, organizations contain front-line, middle, and top managers. Above the top management team are a CEO and a board of director levels. To see this structure even more clearly, visualize a pyramid model. The more you move toward the top of the pyramid, the fewer managers you have. All of these management roles have specific tasks and duties. According to Jones and George, “A managerial role is the set of specific tasks that a manager is expected to perform because of the position he or she holds in an organization.” These skills can be gained with a degree in organizational management.

All great managers play important roles in this model. One important thing to remember is from Henry Mintzberg, a management scholar who researched and reduced thousands of tasks performed by managers to 10 roles (ICPM). His model points out that there are three main types of roles all managers play; they are decisional, interpersonal, and informational. In the decisional role, managers can perform in an entrepreneurial manner, as a disturbance handler, resource allocator or negotiator. In an interpersonal role, managers may be figureheads, leaders, and liaisons. In the informational role, they monitor, are disseminators or spokespersons, and they share information.

Principle No. 3: Effective Management of Organizational Resources

An essential component of operationalizing the organization’s strategic plan is allocating resources where they will make the most impact. In fact, Dr. Ray Powers (2015), associate dean in the Forbes School of Business & Technology, argues that it is the most important thing to do. 

“I define resources as people, time, money, and assets — and of course the basic definition of a project is to have a goal and a start and end date — for pretty much any activity we do,” he explains. 

Managers participate in operational planning and budget planning processes and, in doing so, actively determine what should be done, in what order it is to be done, and determine what resources are appropriate to be successful in achieving the plan. Keep in mind that this is not a personality contest. The strategic plan and its specific objectives determine what is important and what may not be as important.

Principle No. 4: Understanding and Applying the Four Dimensions of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) in Maximizing Human Potential

Effective managers understand the context and culture in leadership situations. What helps these managers succeed? It is simple; they understand EQ (the competencies in each dimension of emotional intelligence). 

Those four dimensions are: a high self-awareness, social awareness, self-management, and good social skills. All of these competencies are important, and they lead to great connections with people. They lead to stronger and more effective managerial performance. EQ is a very important component for excelling as a supervisor. 

The job of the manager is to find a way to turn a team member’s skill and talent into a higher level of performance. This idea doesn’t suggest manipulation at all. Instead, it is about maximizing human potential, one team member at a time. It is as much art as it is science.

Dr. Diane Hamilton, program chair in the Forbes School of Business & Technology, recently described a candidate seeking a position on the faculty senate with having a high EQ. Dr. Hamilton, a highly skilled professional who possesses knowledge and skill in the area of Meyers Briggs Type Indicator, recognizes the importance of EQ. 

“He demonstrates emotional intelligence and exemplifies the high caliber of candidate I would like to represent the FSB,” she said about the candidate. 

Principle No. 5: Know the Business

A common axiom in management is that a qualified manager can manage any business. This point is only partially true. It is true that most managers are generalists rather than specialists; however, many very successful managers began their careers in specialist roles. What most successful managers bring to their work in leading crews, departments, divisions, and companies is both a solid knowledge of the business (they are very experienced) and a solid knowledge of the principles of great management. Manager aspirants must first learn the characteristics of the business by doing, working in the trenches, and discovering how the various pieces of the organization work together to become a universal whole because very good managers discover what is universal in the business and capitalize on it to advance the business and improve performance.

Learning process

 



methods strongly affect outcomes across professional fields.

Depending on which learning process students used, scientists were able to closely predict their GPAs.

Learning as a process is about more than science, results and prediction however. It is about how society works today, and the changing role of ‘expertise.’ The omnipresence of the internet and our shifting attention spans mean that facts, and memorizing them, has become less valuable.

Technology tends to handle details, logistics and facts for us. The bigger questions instead become: how do our brains really work, and how do we gain mastery?

Finding the best way to learn in the first place, means to set rigorous targets. What is it you truly want or need to learn?

Within the bounds of these targets, it should be normal to expect struggle and setbacks. Still most individuals need the promise of an eventual return from their efforts. Goals should be realistic, so that it feels possible to learn – but also ambitious enough to spark excitement. ​

Ambition surrounding a goal can also carry us through difficulty and hardship on the path.

Recognizing that struggle is often a part of learning prevents us from becoming too discouraged, and giving up entirely. That is – ‘learning is a process.’

Learning as a process means that through method, effort, focus, and practice, we can get a lot better at gaining expertise.

However, your first day at school opens door to unknown experiences and opportunities. Much like any other child,  







Role of school in the development of an individual

Why School is Important in Child Development




School is a very important role in every child’s development.  The children of today are the future of tomorrow.

The role of school in our life, school, promotes interest and empowers them with opportunities to become successful individuals. The expansion of the new education system is similar to the development of our society. It is well established that the method of learning is essential in defining one’s personality and in coping with life circumstances. The transition from book literacy to the experience of existence has created a wave of shifts in school

People have warmed up that schooling is the secret to positive growth rather than a means of graduation and achieving material achievement in life. The School is important for a child because the school has a countless knowledge and also the best higher education and guidance for the future.

Importance of Education

Let’s know the Importance of education for children.  It is a first guide for children to educate. It offers them the ability to learn about different fields of Education, including humans, literature, culture, mathematics, politics, and several other topics. That helps to improve the mechanism of reasoning. If you are subjected to stimuli from diverse cultural backgrounds, the environment and life become huge.

Some aspects must be focused on by school education

Social Aspect:

School is the first opportunity for an infant to become socialized. By then, the only individuals with whom the infant has interpersonal contact are the parents and extended family members.

Awareness is a cause of stagnation. Children in schools are not only introduced to fresh concepts, but also the same elderly fellow countrymen. This generates sociable behaviors such as empathy, fellowship, engagement, and encouragement that are essential in your adult life.

Mental Aspect:


School is the basic foundation of knowledge for kids. I give chance to learn about different fields of Education, including humans, literature, culture, mathematics, politics, and several other topics. This contributes to increasing the thought processes of kids.

Physical Aspect:

A fetus is biologically formed after pregnancy. Schools also maintain child development. Physical games played and physical activities, also doing exercise and yoga, which makes child has physical and mentally prepared for the future. So the important in child development of the school.

Furthermore, familiarity contributes to circumstances being taken advantage of when the floor is leveled in college. Why do we need school? Because we all know school is essential for both knowledge and social skills developing. Education gives us knowledge so that if you are gain knowledge when school is important for us.
Also, children may guide their unlimited energies into something positive through the help of events such as sports, and crafts.

In the past, schools have been viewed as locations where incidents may be studied throughout the historical portion, challenging mathematical questions answered, and poetry or sonnets recited.

A pupil knows how to move through the conventional direction of red learning in the modern education children scenario.
They are encouraged to grow their minds, and interest is supported through the modular curriculum. The infant is liberated and lets his / her creativity run its course from the mental block clutches.

There is a significant focus on the value of creativity. 

Existence, while living, is also about learning. We may benefit from our parents to a degree, but i.e., the role of school in our life seems to be one-sided. In school, children are introduced to diverse sources from which they can acquire tremendous information, which is important for their growth. School is also important to in still life in children.”


Overall Development

The cornerstone of every culture is Education.

Education is responsible for the economic and social progress of society in general and political and political advancement. Society thought that children are developed in front of parents but the child developed in school. Also the orthodox way, education is not important, still, some people are thought. 

The benefits of School
something, the more skillful you are. He’s going to speak to the people around him with more ease and trust. This encourages an individual to lift their voice in their society and for their interests.

Friends

Importance of school in our life, Life without friends will not be complete. In School have to make friends and grow up like other people and have fun with friends. Also, make beautiful memories and do activities. Friends should always support them and if have problems so solve them.

The school will plan trips and picnics, so enjoyed the student’s friends. It helps to interrupt the daily cycle and to appreciate the business on these visits.

Friends help you fix your life’s issues. You will even make acquaintances in school and university later, but childhood mates also dominate. Owing to their hostile climate, students find it challenging to sustain friendships at college and university. 

Schoolmates do not have any challenges, on the other side, and thus are more together and healthier. The focal point for most people’s college and social lives. It shows them how things work around them. When you educate them on the variations and similarities between individuals, you learn to talk in the community. Learning to talk about and knowing the problems facing culture is learned in Education.

The school helps a person to read and understand life different stuff. You learn to communicate with other individuals. Schools frequently demonstrate that the universe is vast in scope outside the horizons

Education



Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. Educational methods include storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, and directed research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, however learners may also educate themselves. Education can take place in formal or informal settings and any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. The methodology of teaching is called pedagogy.

Formal education is commonly divided formally into such stages as preschool or kindergarten, primary school, secondary school and then college, university, or apprenticeship.

A right to education has been recognized by some governments and the United Nations.In most regions, education is compulsory up to a certain age.Education began in prehistory, as adults trained the young in the knowledge and skills deemed necessary in their society. In pre-literate societies, this was achieved orally and through imitation. Story-telling passed knowledge, values, and skills from one generation to the next. As cultures began to extend their knowledge beyond skills that could be readily learned through imitation, formal education developed. Schools existed in Egypt at the time of the Middle Kingdom.

Plato founded the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in Europe. The city of Alexandria in Egypt, established in 330 BCE, became the successor to Athens as the intellectual cradle of Ancient Greece. There, the great Library of Alexandria was built in the 3rd century BCE. European civilizations suffered a collapse of literacy and organization following the fall of Rome in CE 476.

In China, Confucius (551–479 BCE), of the State of Lu, was the country's most influential ancient philosopher, whose educational outlook continues to influence the societies of China and neighbours like Korea, Japan, and Vietnam. Confucius gathered disciples and searched in vain for a ruler who would adopt his ideals for good governance, but his Analects were written down by followers and have continued to influence education in East Asia into the modern era.
