Modes of Learning

Jason Scott has an interesting post on different modes of learning, with links to some research.

Jason's personal issue with learning is that he can pick up just about anything written down, but has a very difficult time remembering things he's heard. He's figured out some work-arounds, but standard educational modes (with a room full of students and a teacher talking at the front) didn't work so well for him.

I have a similar(ish) problem with learning, but mine has to do with the type of information I'm working with. I'm better with written info, yes, but almost as good with what I hear so that's not a huge deal. But my brain resists taking in individual data items as though throwing up defenses against an enemy seige. :P

Torquere Spirit -- Mine


My novelette, A Spirit of Vengeance, is on sale at Torquere for 20% off, which makes it $1.99. I have a free short story coming out on the 30th which is an epilogue to this story, so if you haven't read "Spirit" yet, this is a great chance.
