12SSM – The 12 Step Study Method Workshop Overview
Learners from grade 6 and onwards are confronted with increasingly larger volumes of study material, and are expected to excel academically, but they are not taught a successful method of HOW TO STUDY
To teach learners a 12 Step recipe to follow that works. The 12SSM is based on basic scientific principles related to memory and cognition. In a unique semi one-on-one facilitation environment, we workshop the implementation of these principles in their daily lives.
Our aim is to equip learners with the skills to excel both Academically and in life.
The 12SSM Workshops unlock the Keys to an EFFECTIVE LEARNING process.
There are certain basic scientific principles that influence the learning process. When learners understand and apply these principles:
- Correct learning becomes a habit
- They start achieving academically
- Their stress levels are dramatically reduced
- They retain information much longer
- They can apply knowledge much more effectively
- They deal much more efficiently with large amounts of work
Some of the skills a learner will acquire in the 12SSM Workshop
How to summarise according to scientifically based principles
How to follow a basic recipe for Effective Learning and in doing so achieve academically
How to replace rote (‘parrot”) learning with Lateral Learning
How to distinguish between what is important and what not in study material
A NEW WAY OF LIFE: LATERAL LEARNING
Our unique concept of Lateral Learning is an alternative method of understanding, absorbing, storing and recalling information that replaces traditional “parrot” learning or rote memorization with understanding and insight, which greatly increases the effectiveness of the learning process, and goes beyond just study material; it’s a way of living and continuing to truly learn.
“I don’t teach many study methods. I believe they only confuse learners. I give learners a totally new outlook on learning that makes it much easier for them to achieve. I believe that this is why EFFECTIVE LEARNING (EL) is producing such amazing results.” – Reandi Meij, developer of the 12SSM
