Easy Peezy No Brainer
When you keep acquiring new skills and knowledge, you model something very important for your kids.
#1- mix things up, string together a series of varied related activities. Encountering the same material in different ways can help cement knowledge because we activate different parts of the brain when doing so. (Left brain/Right brain)
Gary Marcus, a professor of psychology at New York University states that "if you don't vary things, you'll get bored and won't practice/study."
#2- study on schedule-NO CRAMMING! it's temporary, force your brain to repeatedly retrieve info, the key is giving yourself time to forget, then recall what you've studied. Revisiting info that is no longer fresh in your mind gives the material a firmer foothold in your memory (Robert A Bjork, PhD; Nate Kornell, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Williams College)
