Hacking Knowledge: 77 Ways to Learn Faster, Deeper, and Better

I just finished reading a wonderful, helpful and enjoyable article. It was a well-thought and well-organized list of ways how to learn faster, deeper and better. Please find below the classification of the learning advice:

  1. Health
  2. Balance
  3. Perspective and Focus
  4. Recall Techniques
  5. Visual Aids
  6. Verbal and Auditory Techniques
  7. Kinesthetic Techniques
  8. Self-Motivation Techniques
  9. Supplemental Techniques
  10. For Teacher, Tutors and Parents
  11. For Students and Self-Studiers
  12. Parting Advice

This is the part I liked, enjoyed and learned more of. This piece reminds of the time I was a student and got bored systematically because my teachers had nothing good to say:

Be engaged. Surprise. Sometimes students are bored because they know more than is being taught, maybe even more than a teacher. (Hopefully teachers will assess what each student already knows.) Students should discuss with a teacher if they feel that the material being covered is not challenging. Also consider asking for additional materials.
Teach yourself. Teachers cannot always change their curricula. If you’re not being challenged, challenge yourself. Some countries still apply country-wide exams for all students. If your lecturer didn’t cover a topic, you should learn it on your own. Don’t wait for someone to teach you. Lectures are most effective when you’ve pre-introduced yourself to concepts.
