Effective Learning strategy.

# 10MinWritingEveryday # SunriseNote

It is interesting how humans remember things. We continuously access certain information by using it for an extended period. Remember a list of new vocabulary, learn new skills that involve some strategical repeatability.

Memory is such a fantastic function that all brain carries. There is a particular function or ability called Synaptic Plasticity, and it is means the existence of synapses – a structure that works and helps between neurons communication – to strengthen or weaken over time. Use it or lost it is the key insights of leaning.

In education and learning, the key to designing instructional materials for maximum high-efficiency learning results is not the well-constructed class curriculum for a duration of time. Instead, it is how we can build a system that comfortable for a student to quickly ‘mimic’ and repeat. A system that turns and divide leaning models to a smaller cell that complete usable task. For a leaner, you always should take action now and move learning direction one step at a time forward and make it a solid routine strategically. It is not necessary to set goals to changes, the goal usually weakens the action.

#日升笔记 #每日写作

人类大脑中一些特定的机制帮助了记忆的产生。记忆在某种程度上可以被理解为能力或者技能,譬如收银员可以通过入门学习掌握收银、管理的一系列知识。但了解了知识如果不去使用,相隔一段时间就会被遗忘。如果这个技能足够简单和通识化,问题似乎还并不严重。譬如初学相机的使用者,即时长时间没有使用,通常会记得快门按钮的位置。但不一定能记得EV调整的使用。

其根本区别在于技能的层级(专业级)和其能应对的问题的复杂程度。技能的专业化过程代表了该记忆揉杂进入了“经验”,经验可以通过重复使用特定的程序或经历来获取。每次按下快门的经验实际是不同的,遇到的不同情景下的技术挑战,会促使使用者解决特定的 – 看似简单重复经验过程中的 – 不确定性因素,这就是知识向技能转换的过程,你必须持续在一种循环式的锤炼中获得纯粹的经验积累。这意味着,从摄影观看经验的学习角度而言,学习摄影的关键在于如何将人类生来的观看能力 Ability,转化为观看的技能 Skills,继而转换为观看的思考 Critical Thinking,通过对观看的思考、分析和认知 Analytical Kownleadge,继而转化为观看的输出品 Photographic action。

Writing small, write often

In Nov. 2004, 15 years from now, I launched a website Busoni Books, an early version of Opps.cn. Just at the time when I signed a contract to write my first book Digital Photography for Zhejiang Photography Press. The purpose of the online Busoni Books is to collect some writing pieces that may not use for the book, but it’s still valuable in some perspective.

Many things have changed in the past 15 years. Now, in my early 40s, I decided to continue to accumulate some of my current thoughts in Art, Design, and future media, and start writing in English regularly.

I can never claim myself fluent in English writing, but I see the value of thinking in a different language mode. Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish!
