Improving concentration in learning

Updated on February 22, 2011

Educational resources

In order to attain learning and become confident in your subjects, you need to pay proper attention. Being able to concentrate and effectively take in the ideas is extremely important. Lack of attention to details or ideas can lead to a lot of confusion and lack of clarity in the way you answer your exams. It is important to find the right methods to study and to also take adequate breaks between the learning sessions. There are certain reasons why learning does not become effective and concentration tends to be a problem with students, let's look at some of the reasons for this:

  1. Lack of interest in the subject and lack of clarity about the topics
  2. High level of difficulty making it more time consuming to learn
  3. Too many tasks to do at once
  4. In adequate motivation and improper goal setting
  5. Too much noise and way too many activities happening

When you study, you have to create an active interest level in the subject. Your attention has to especially keen and when reading material that may be dull, you need to find alternate resources that will create an interest like animated CD's or interactive content from educational companies. If your concentration is better when you use these kind of materials for learning, you are probably more of a visual learner or auditory learner, depending on whether sound or sight stimulates your interest.

Another reason most kids tend to not be able to do as well as they like is because of lack of proper motivation and a fear that you cannot achieve your goals. Inspiring confidence in the child is important. In order to study with proper concentration, you can:

  1. Select a place that is quiet and where you will remain undisturbed.
  2. Plan and organize studies according to schedules you have and goals ahead.
  3. Develop a confident and positive outlook to exams and tests.
  4. Remember by questioning yourself or taking online tests between your lessons or after.
  5. Work in sessions of short intervals with breaks in between to stay active.
  6. Make notes and summarize with simple techniques, that I will discuss in another article ahead.

When you follow these steps, you will find it easier to remember and revise at a later point. As learning becomes easier, you will be able to perform far better and also be able to train yourself to be sharp in order to work effectively towards achieving your targets.
