Study Skills
Learn how to become an effective learner and how to manage your own learning.
Learning and Teaching Scotland has commissioned this collection of learning materials to help learners to develop the study skills and information literacy they need in order to become independent learners and to develop their full potential as individuals, citizens and workers in the 21st century.
The activities in this learning series are grouped around the four main stages for effective studying and the successful processing of information. The four headings - Get, Understand, Remember and Do - follow the logical steps which people take when they are finding out about something, making sense of it, then telling someone else about it or doing something with it.
There are separate sets of notes for teachers, parents/carers and students.
