If you are a student or have children studying you've probably heard of the importance of implementing appropriate study skills to succeed in their learning.

Education professionals often train their students in the handling of certain study techniques such as underlining, the performance of construction schedules and summaries in the hours of tutoring, educational and even in the mainstream classroom. However, the failure rate and dropout rates skyrocket even more. What may be caused by this?

Most students applying the techniques of study involving a single channel of the senses: the visual. In fact in schools, most of the information is still broadcasting as they did in the past century, ie, in storage media such as books, posters or blackboards.

Many researchers believe that the process of learning to study demands a multi-sensory training, where students can smell, touch, see, hear or even taste what they study. This makes perfect sense when you consider that most of the events that are related easily remember smells, sounds, colors, touch or taste certain.

Other discoveries are that are intrinsic factors such as student attitude and motivation, those who will determine success in school and teacher training to advise on strategies to promote the development of personal skills in students.

This does not mean that learning is not necessary to consider learning traditional survey techniques, but they can improve their effectiveness if they are complemented with other techniques that involve a greater number of senses, such as the viewing of short clips on Youtube or interview an expert on the subject.

If anything is clear is that learning to learn is a process that lasts a lifetime, which improves with practice and as the title says, goes beyond the learning and mastery of traditional survey techniques.
