Poverty Is The Biggest Barrier To E-Learning In Africa and not poor internet...
More often than not, settling to study can be of challenge as a result of distractions around us; entertainments, T.V programs, presence on social media, fatigue, the list goes on and on. There are relative overwhelming interests that come in conflict with individual academic study.
But be as it may, conscious efforts can be made to curb these and turn up your enthusiasm to study. If you have always piled up your books and found yourself doing a “fire brigade approach” to exams more often, this one is for you.
1. Know who you are:
The best way to organize is the one that works for you. There is no golden rule that works for everyone. Are you a sleeper? Are you a quick learner? What time of the day are you so energetic? When does your body requests sleep? When do you usually have high morale to read? When does all the distractions wane?
Discover yourself through introspection. You do not have the same ability as your colleagues who read early in the morning or late at night.
2. Form a habit:
Human beings are known to become perpetual haven done a particular
thing often and often. Set specific hour(s) everyday to read, this will maintain the systematic organization of your schedule and keep you actively involved in studying.
You can be motivated every time to read by starting with those courses/topics that interests you the most. In reference to the previous post, develop curiosity, dig deep, make historical findings (you’ll be surprised how well informed and enthusiastic to study more you’ll become).
It can be elusive because time waits for no one. With all sorts of distractions taking up your time you probably may not make it a continuum to read at your scheduled time.
Make use of your free hours between classes. The hours between classes can be used to review notes before a class or to begin an assignment. Spend 15 – 20 minutes reviewing your notes immediately following class or when classes are done for the day.
This will reduce the amount of study time needed before an exam.
