SmartWisdom for Study
Study is all about comprehending and retaining new knowledge. These two skills are crucial. They alone can determine our future: what and where we study next, our careers, where we live, who we meet and our lifestyles.
The first key to optimise this process, whether we are studying in a lecture, online or through reading, is an ability to listen and concentrate, when we need to and for as long as we want. These two skills are the foundation for effectively absorbing and learning new knowledge.
They are not easy to activate and sustain at the best of times and, in our 21st century world, endless distractions have only made the challenge greater.
The great news is that there is now a technique which will help you to activate and achieve a very high level both of concentration and listening at a moment’s notice, for as long as you want to sustain it.
The second key of this process is comprehension: the ability to understand new information.
Previous generation notetaking
Where the primary focus is to record - was something we learnt at school over a period of 10 years or more. We were trained to record as much relevant information as we could (much of it which we may not have understood at the time) with the aim of taking these notes away, to review, comprehend and learn, for an assessment at a later point in time.
Next generation notetaking
Where the primary purpose is to comprehend, combines the ability to listen and concentrate at a moment’s notice, for as long as we want, while capturing and increasing our comprehension of new knowledge, in real-time, at a deep level.
Immediately this makes the experience of attending our lecture or reading our book much more interesting and enjoyable. We can see the new knowledge quite literally building before our eyes. The more we understand, the more we can ask relevant questions to clarify immediately, and therefore increase our understanding even further.
Just as importantly, this greater real-time comprehension makes the next step of our learning process - what we do after our lecture or reading - that much easier and faster. Our notes, the new knowledge, will be easier to revisit, review, comprehend, learn and recall when assessed.
SmartWisdom has been scientifically proven to increase our real time comprehension, the depth of our understanding of new information, by 12% within two weeks, above that achieved by last generation notetaking. This increases up to an average of 20% after a year. Next generation notetaking is revolutionary and transformational.
