In the very first class of the course, M1.1, Learning, we reccommend several new habits to get into as you start this course in order to try to ensure you don't just passively listen to the classes & read information here in the e-book.
We introduce you to the learning pyramid (how much we can absorb of what we learn) in order to explain why we've designed things in the way we have, and what you can do in order to benefit most from your Action Learning Course.
The important word is "Action" - unless you are active you will not be able to hear, understand or especially to ACT on the information and support you have signed up for on this (or any other) course.
We strongly suggest you also do these more active (and physically activating) things in order to engage much more - and so use a lot better for your learning:
Especially when working on a computer, or in any sedentary environment, it is important to take regular movement breaks. The information and sheer quantity of fascinating things can keep you immobilized in a chair for many hours ... and this is not good for your body or your mind. Here are a few practical suggestions you can design into your own personalized learning programme ... but do think of your own and let us know which have worked best for you.
A) If you already love dancing ... make a selection of your favourite songs (eg. see how to make a playlist on YouTube) then pick one to dance to when you have your break.
NOTE - It is important to have prepared the songs before hand, otherwise you are likely to end up perusing the music videos instead of getting up out of the chair to dance!
B) If you don't usually dance, or think 'I can't dance', etc. OR you want to try something different ... we suggest you watch and move with this short practical lesson from dance innovator Gabrielle Roth:

You can use this guided video (from minute 1:50) or any of the playlists available in YouTube to take just 3 to 5 minutes out to move & stretch in your study breaks. Make them frequent enough and you will see how much more fruitful your learning will be!
