We all know that studying in the midst of the pandemic has become a challenge. We can’t feel the urge to study because of the situation we have. Despite online classes being amended, it is still the same. As a student, I cannot absorb the lessons well, compared to face-to-face classes where I know I can participate proactively. That has become the reason why I want to share tips on how to study effectively.
Based on the study of oxfordlearning.com, these tips help me to remain attentive even through the medium of online learning:
Keep a homework planner with you. When homework, projects, tests, and assignments enter as soon as teachers assign them. You are less likely to forget them. Being organized in studying will become a good step for you to study more effectively.
Pay attention in class.
When the teacher speaks, it remains critical to focus and prevent further distractions. Concentrate on what is being said while taking notes in your own words to practice active listening. This ensures that you hear and comprehend everything that the teacher says in class. One thing that I am sure about with this one – if you listen even though the subject is quite hard to understand, eventually you will get it if you analyze the details properly.
Make sure your notes are complete.
Taking detailed notes in class will assist you in processing the material that you are learning. These notes will also serve as a reviewer when your teacher schedules a test. If you miss a lesson, on the other hand, check with your classmates or the teacher. That way, you can make sure your notes are complete.
Don’t hesitate to ask questions.
If you don’t understand something, raise your hand and ask questions. If you don’t want to inquire in front of the class, make a mental note to speak with the teacher after class. This tip is a huge help for me. I always ask questions. That way, I am able to understand them properly. I highly suggest that you ask questions more often!
All of us have different ways of studying. It depends on how we handle academic life. However, one thing remains for sure, study smart – not study hard.
