School crams four-month lessons into just eight minutes!November 14th, 2007 - 1:59 am ICT by admin
“It’s based on scientific breakthroughs that suggests a gene in the brain can be developed with short lessons followed by periods of brain inactivity,” the Mirror quoted Dr Kelley, as saying.
The school claims that the inactive period is crucial in making the memory “stick”.fter each short session, students at the North Tyneside situated school are given a ten-minute break before returning to the classroom.
The ground-breaking technique is proving to be a big hit with the students, who are using it for revision.
“This is a much more effective method of learning. Teaching the lesson three times in such a short period helps me remember it,” said student Fushia Stutter. (ANI)
