Schools don’t really teach people how to learn. Somehow you learn how to learn all by yourself. Some people become good at it and excel and those who are bad at it end up considering themselves less intelligent.
Teaching students how to learn would significantly improve school performance and success in life. There are many adults moving around feeling less intelligent just because they did not get it right from the outset.
If there is a skill that is worth your attention today, it’s learning how to learn. I took this McMaster Online Course on Coursera that really helped me understand how learning works. Just by understanding how learning works, you will change how you view learning. I strongly recommend the course. You can apply for financial aid if you cannot pay for it.
