I believe we learn by doing, so in my classes the emphasis is on firstly just having a go. I believe when we approach a problem for ourselves first, even if we get it wrong, the solution is then more solidly fixed in our minds. I also think the more active we are in our learning, the more likely we are to actually remember it. This includes things like making our own revision materials, absorbing the information in several different formats and then actually applying it. I believe by encouraging students to have a go and use their brains first they also build confidence in themselves. When mistakes are made that’s okay! It’s part of the learning process and if things aren’t being understood then the student and I can break them down into smaller chunks to see where the misunderstanding is happening. That can then be picked apart until the full picture is understood with clarity. I also thoroughly believe in knowing the basics and building up our learning like a pyramid, so going back to solidify those early broader topics so we can better understand the more complex and specific ones going forward.
