In Quantum Strategies your student learns how to create an optimal learning environment. When studying at home things such as excess paper, books, technology and other clutter distracts students. At SuperCamp we teach the why behind clearing the clutter and the how to create a brain-friendly study area.
In addition, students get focused training on many different learning strategies to help them retain information taught in the classroom, engage with their teacher, and ultimately increase their grades.
The holy grail of learning is meaning. Students who take ownership of their learning and truly understand how their brain processes information are able to commit the information to their long-term memory. This is the key to effective learning—information learned in this way sticks with them, unlike when they just memorize it for the test. Notes:TM, our specialized note-taking strategy, gives your child the skills necessary to not only take notes but to make notes meaningful—and memorable—once they leave the classroom.
By using all three learning channels (visual, auditory and kinesthetic) students are more likely to retain the information in theirlong-term memory. Location memory is one of many memorization techniques we teach at SuperCamp that allow your child to do better on tests and recall information long after the test is over. By creating stories around things that are familiar to students, SuperCamp facilitators show them how to use such familiar settings and attach any list of information to them—enabling them to absorb the information easier and faster. At SuperCamp you child will learn how to use this technique for things like memorizing the first 12 presidents of the United States in a creative, fun, and effective way.
What would you say if you could learn a list of up to 20 words, phrases or objects within minutes? This Quantum strategy allows your child to do just that. The ability to memorize long lists of information is invaluable to students, and can cut their study time considerably. We teach students visual, auditory, and kinesthetic tricks that allow them to recall any kind of list backward, forward, and everything in between. More than just a party trick, this technique helps students to memorize quickly and frees up more of their time for family and extracurricular activities.
In mind mapping, a concept created by Tony Buzan, students visually outline information and thoughts in a colorful tree-like format that facilitates understanding and learning. At SuperCamp, students learn and practice this technique and become familiar with its many advantages such as recalling information they have read, processing information they have learned in class, and organizing their thoughts for a writing assignment.
