Rote Learning
"Memory is learning that persists"
Learning something starts with attending to it
Intent to remember
We are interested in ourselves (most of us), relating new information to ourselves or what we know already creates a meaningful connection which will transfer information into long term memory
When you learn, set your mind to it
Attend to the important information only
The best time to review new information is right after it is learned
Study Tools
You hold the key to your own success!
Calming music-background noise
Seek help
Stay away from your bed!
Classroom-like environment
Meet your needs before you study!
Rest, eat, concentrate
Forming Connections=Transferring to Long Term Memory
Relate the information to yourself or knowledge you already have
Chunk the information into smaller sections

"TAG"=Transfer Admission Guarantee

Become the Expert: "teaching" the information to someone else will help you become an expert on the topic
