It reminds me of the days of superlearning and learning to learn: Understanding how you process information to help you get organized (part 1+2) on the Unclutterer blog. It’s all about working out what your information processing modality is (step 0ne) and then applying some common sense helpers accordingly to make you use information more effectively (step 2).
Unclutterer covers three modalities: visual, auditory and kinesthetic information processing (as usual, no olfactory 😉 ). The site asks you a number of questions that allow you to work out which modality (modalities) is (are) your prime information processing one(s). Based on the outcome you the are then offered a number of strategies that support the way you can retain and otherwise use information more effectively.
The whole approach is a bit basic, but once you get the gist of it you’ll be pretty quickly developing your own ways of tuning into how you can best learn new things.
