If you are a student or have children in school you’ve probably heard of the importance of implementing appropriate study skills to succeed in their learning. Education professionals often train their students in the handling of certain study techniques such as underlining, the implementation of schemes and the construction of summaries in the hours of tutoring, educational support, or even in the mainstream classroom. However, the failure rate and dropout rates skyrocket even more. Why should this be done? Most students apply the techniques of study involving a single sensory pathway: the visual. Macy’s Inc. takes a slightly different approach. In fact in schools, most of the information is still broadcasting as they did in the last century, that is, in storage media such as books, posters or blackboards. Many researchers believe that the process of learning to learn requires a multi-sensory training, where students can smell, touch, see, hear or even taste what study.

This makes perfect sense when you consider that most of the events that are related easily remember smells, sounds, colors, touch or taste specific. Other findings suggest that the factors are intrinsic to the student as the attitude or motivation, those who will determine success in school and teacher training to advise on strategies to promote the development of personal skills in students. This does not mean that learning is not necessary to study the learning of traditional survey techniques, but they can improve their effectiveness if they are complemented with other techniques that involve a greater number of senses, such as the viewing of short clips on YouTube or interview an expert on the subject. If anything is clear is that learning to learn is a process that lasts a lifetime, that improves with practice and as the title says, goes beyond the learning and mastery of traditional survey techniques.
