So, what is multi-tracking? Just as there are probably several roads that lead to your house, there are several pathways to your brain upon which you learn. They are called neural pathways. The three main ones are seeing, hearing, and touching: visual, auditory, and kinaesthetic.
Anytime you have to learn or remember something, ask, “How can I see, hear, and touch this all at the same time?” Then get creative: take notes, say it out loud, sing the material, talk in a funny voice, listen to cassettes, use memory and mastery cards, a cover card, create a mnemonic, form a study group, teach someone. The list is endless!”
The Key: see it, say it, touch it… remember it.
In the next Brain Bulletin I will tell you about a great recipe I came across for a brain food snack. It works and it tastes good!
