You probably found it much easier to draw a “dub” once you knew what one was. This is the case in any field of study. The ability to fully understand a text allows you to use what you have learned quickly and correctly. Unfortunately, the realization that one has gone past a misunderstood word and the immediate ability to get that word defined are not very common, both in conventional education and in life.
This demonstration makes it very easy to understand the role played by misunderstood words. There are three specific barriers to study which are a core component of the Study Technology method. These are:
- Lack of Mass – Studying about physical things and their details without the actual thing present or at least pictures, etc.
- Too Steep of a Gradient in Learning – Going past onto the next step of the study before you have mastered the prior step.
- Misunderstood Words – Reading materials where there is one or more word which is insufficiently or incorrectly understood.
You may have experienced certain emotions and frustrations on the Study Technology Demonstration when you had a “misunderstood word”. Lack of Mass and Too Steep a Gradient have their own sets of reactions and a teacher well trained and experienced in these methods can usually have a pretty good idea which of these a student is experiencing, and how to remedy it.
Once remedied, the student feels brighter and is once again eager to learn.
