Categories: What You Should Know

Each post on AwesomeStudy will be separated into five categories, which will be posted in once a week. These are:

Skills

Here I inform you of study, note taking, writing and anything-else-that-floats-my-boat techniques to help you achieve your best at school. That sounds really old and clichéd, and you’ve probably heard it a million times, but this site is devoted to helping you, and how else can I best do that? But I hope to make it as interesting as possible, and I’m assuming you at least have a mild interest in improving yourself, which should help. I have a series of posts already lined up, including brainstorming, note-taking and research skills and techniques. Stay tuned.

TechSavvy

We are students of the 21st century, yet far too often, I see students unable to produce work on a computer, or slugging through life when they could be using technology to help them out. There will be posts about software and apps, which will only be Windows, iOS and web apps. Sorry, I only have these available, but if you’re willing to write ones for Android, Blackberry, Mac, or any other sort of operating system you have access to, shoot me a line using the contact form. I’m also going to share a bunch of tips about software, things like PowerPoint, Word, and Microsoft Office alternatives.

self-referential; referring to itself or its characteristics, esp. as a parody; about

One of the sixteen Habits of Mind is thinking about thinking, or metacognition. That should clear it up if you were a bit confused. You need to think about the way you think, the way you react to situations, the way you approach tasks, the way you think about your thinking. I truly believe if you understand how your mind works, you will be able to be successful. You will see your strengths and weakness, where you need to improve, and where you smash the opposition. This will help you everywhere, not just with your study. This will be one of the more in-depth categories, and I really hope you take the time to read them, and implement them in your life.
