Famous super learner ,《 How to learn efficiently 》《 Super learner 》 author ,1 Completed the undergraduate course of MIT Computer Specialty by self-study in .

Do you want to finish all the courses required for a college degree in one year ?

Want to master a new language in a few months ?

Want to master multiple professional skills at the same time ?

—— these , It's all a feat done by super learners .


01

What is? “ Super learning ”?

 

Super learning (Ultralearning) It's a strategy to acquire skills and knowledge , Both autonomous and spontaneous , It's urgent and intense again .

 

First , Super learning is a strategy .

Strategy is not the only solution to a given problem , But it may be a good solution . Strategies are often appropriate for specific situations , Not everything , So using them is an option , Not orders .

 

secondly , Super learning is autonomous .

You have to decide what to study , Why learn . Fully autonomous learners may also think that , Going to a specific school is the best way to learn . Again , You can also follow the steps in the textbook to teach yourself something , Don't worry too much . Autonomy depends on what is dominant in the project , Not where to study .

 

Last , Super learning is urgent and intense .

All the super learners I meet take unusual measures to maximize their learning efficiency . Fearlessly try to speak a new language that has just begun to practice , Systematically delve into thousands of trivial problems , Repeatedly improve the work until it is perfect , This is a hard mental work , You will feel as if you are approaching the limit of using your brain . On the contrary, learning for fun and convenience : Because it's fun to learn a language , Practice oral expression ; I have to watch the replay of intelligence program on TV , So as not to be tripped by problems when participating in the program , Look silly ; Just play around , Instead of practicing . This high-strength 、 An urgent and intense learning style may put you into a happy flow state , In this state , You focus on the challenging experience , Even forget the time . In the super learning project , Deep and effective learning is the top priority .

 

Obviously , Super learning is not easy . You have to take time out of your busy schedule to do something , You'll be nervous 、 Emotional depression and even the body can't bear it . You will be forced to face setbacks , You can't go back and take second place , You can't go back to your comfort zone . Considering these circumstances , I think it necessary to make it clear that , Why should you seriously consider super learning programs .

 


02

Why? “ Super learning ” Very important ?

 

The reason a : Super learning programs can accelerate your career growth .

To make a living , You've invested a lot of time and energy . by comparison , Even if you temporarily choose full-time learning as a super learning method , It's just a small investment . However , Mastering hard skills quickly has a great impact on you . You've worked hard for years at work , So far, at best, the achievements have been mediocre . Whether you want to change careers , Accept new career challenges , Or accelerate growth , Super learning is a powerful tool .

 

Reason two : Super learning programs can enrich your personal life .

How many of us have dreamed of playing musical instruments , Speak a foreign language , Become a cook 、 Writer or photographer ? The highlight moment of life does not come from simple things , And one day you rediscover your potential , You are no longer timid , You have the belief that you can do it . Through super learning , You can master new skills , So as to gain great satisfaction and confidence .

use “ Super learning ” Accelerate your career growth

 

The trend of skill polarization in the economy 、 Soaring tuition fees and new technologies are global trends . But for individuals , What is super learning like ? In my submission , such The strategy of quickly acquiring hard skills is mainly applicable to the following three situations : Accelerate your career growth , Move to a new career , And gaining potential advantages in a competitive world .

 

You must want to know how super learning can promote your current career development , Let's take Colby as an example . After college , She started working for a web development company , But she wants to go further , Get a promotion . She took part in a super learning project to learn web copywriting . After taking the initiative to show her copywriting ability to the boss , She got a promotion . By choosing a valuable skill , Conquer it , Master this skill , You can accelerate your career development .

 

Lack of knowledge or skills is often the main obstacle to your transition to the career you want to pursue . for example , Vishar is doing marketing work in the field of science and Technology , He felt he had done a good job , Quite satisfied , But he looks forward to participating in the development and research of artificial intelligence one day . Unfortunately , This requires a profound set of technical skills , He hasn't got . Through a period of 6 Months of super learning project , He has acquired strong enough skills , And smoothly change your career , Found a job in a dream field .

 

Last , Super learning programs can help you improve other skills and qualifications you have accumulated at work . Diana worked as a librarian in her hometown of New Zealand for many years . In the face of the reduction of government support funds and the rapid scientific and technological development of her field , She worried that her expertise might not be enough to keep up with the situation . therefore , She participated in two super learning programs , One is to learn statistics and programming languages R, The other is learning data visualization . Her industry is in urgent need of these skills , Plus her working background as a librarian , Her career finally blossomed . The vocational skills improved through super learning program can be said to have contributed a lot .

How to arrange time for super learning ?

 

Another question that may come to your mind is , How do you find time for these intensive learning projects . You may be worried that this advice does not apply to you , Because you already have a job 、 Academic or family obligations , Unable to devote oneself to full-time study .

 

However , actually , That's not a problem . Even if you have to deal with other tasks and challenges in life ,“ Super learning ” There are three main uses for the concept of : New part-time learning programs 、 Holiday study , And reimagining existing learning programs .

 

Method 1 : Use your spare time for super learning projects .

Super learners who invest a lot of time in the project learn the most effectively , Most admirable . Assuming the same efficiency , Spend... Every week 50 Achievements in a learning project for hours , Bihua 5 There must be more learning content completed in an hour . therefore , Usually , The most amazing super learners have strict schedules . Although this helps super learning , But when you're working on your own super learning project , This is actually unnecessary . The core of super learning strategy is strength and willingness to give priority to efficiency . Is it full-time study or a few hours a week , It's all up to you .

 

Method 2 : Carry out super learning projects during work or school breaks .

Many of the people I interviewed were temporarily unemployed 、 Project learning during career transition or vacation . Although these are not very reliable plans , But if you know you'll have such a break , So, surprise learning is perfect for you . This is my challenge MIT One of the driving forces of the course : I had just graduated , It's much easier to extend my student life for one year than for four years .

 

Method 3 : Combine the super learning principles with the learning time and energy you have invested .

Consider a business book you recently read , Or think about trying to learn Spanish 、 Ceramic or programming moment . It can be new software that needs to be learned in order to make the work more convenient , It can also be online learning required to obtain professional development Certification . Super learning is not necessarily an extra activity , It can help you gain more from the time you have spent studying . How can you learn what you need to do 、 Research is combined with the principle of super learning , To maximize efficiency ?

How to be “ Super learner ”?

 

Based on my observation of super learning projects , And my personal experience , After consulting as much cognitive science literature as possible , I summed up super learning 9 Great principles :

(1) Meta learning

First draw the guidance map . Start by studying how to learn the topics or skills you want to deal with . See how to do a good job of investigation , How to use your past abilities to learn new skills more easily .

(2) focus

Sharpening a knife never misses a woodcutter . Develop the ability to concentrate . Set aside large blocks of time to concentrate on your study , Make learning easy .

(3) direct

March forward courageously . For the skills you want to be good at , Learning while doing . Don't be greedy for convenience or comfort , Just replace it with other indirect tasks .

(4) Training

Overcome weak links . Improve your weaknesses without mercy . Break down complex skills into small units , Master... One by one , Then merge them .

(5) retrieval

Promote learning through measurement . Examinations are more than just a way of assessing knowledge , It is also a way to create knowledge . Before you feel confident about the learning effect , Test yourself first , Urge yourself to actively retrieve information , Instead of passively reviewing .

(6) feedback

Don't avoid negative comments . Some of the feedback is harsh or even harsh , At this time , Don't let your self-esteem hold you back . Make good use of feedback , Extract signals from various feedback , So you know what to pay attention to , Ignore what .

(7) memory

Don't add water to the leaky bucket . Find out what you've forgotten , Why forget . Learn to remember knowledge or skills , Not to remember now , But always remember .

(8) intuition

Think deeply before forming intuition . Develop intuition through the use and exploration of concepts and skills . Find out how understanding is produced , Don't rely on simple memory skills , To deeply understand the essence of things .

(9) test

Step out of your comfort zone and explore . All these principles are just the starting point . True mastery comes not only from following the path of others , It also comes from exploring possibilities that others have never imagined .

Beyond career : Call for super learning

 

Super learning is an effective skill to deal with the changing world . The ability to learn hard skills quickly will become more and more valuable . No matter how far you can develop this ability , You have to do your best to develop , Even if you need some investment in the early stage , It's all worth it .

 

The super learners I've seen , Including those who eventually make the most money from the new skills they learn , Rarely driven by career success . contrary , What drives them to take action is that they want to do what they really want to do . This intense curiosity , Or even the challenge itself is the driving force to push them forward .

 

Super learning has an additional benefit : Succeeded in doing something very difficult , Especially those things that need to learn new things , Can expand a person's self-definition . It gives you confidence : You can do what you couldn't have done before . At the completion of MIT After the super learning challenge project , I think my interest in mathematics and computer science has deepened , Even feel that nothing is impossible : Since I can do this , What else can I do that I didn't dare to try before ?

 

The core of learning is to broaden our horizons , See what you couldn't see before , Recognize your inner , But the potential you haven't found before . Super learning project has high learning intensity , Great energy investment , There is no greater motivation than to explore your own possibilities . If you take the right approach to learning , What can you learn ? Who will you be ?
