At some point in your K-12 education, you probably found value in the use of flashcards. But have you thought about using them now that you’re an adult learner?
Flashcards are a GREAT tool for committing almost anything to memory. And let’s face it, when you begin any type of academic or training program, there is quite a bit of information that needs to be memorized before you can do anything more with it.
To ensure that you get the most out of your stack of flashcards, watch this brief video of Dr. Katherine Rawson (of Kent State University) as she provides tips on how to use flashcards effectively and efficiently based on what she and her team have learned via their research: http://www.kent.edu/news/video/rawsonvideo.cfm.
Dr. Rawson was recently recognized by U.S. President Obama and given the honor of being a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.
