Reduce and Transform Reduce mind maps Transform text speak and post it notes Speak in an accent Blurting Reduce information When trying to learns lots of important facts or information relating to a topic you need to reduce the information and be selective

Drawing pictures or adding images can help you memorise important information. Use a range of colours. Transform information 1. Transform the information to something else; you are more likely to remember it if you make it memorable. Transform a paragraph/poem/information into text language 2. Post it notes Write one fact on each post-it note. On the other side of each one you need to write a short, clear question the fact on the other side is the answer.

Put the post-it notes on your desk so you can only see the questions. Pick one up at random, read the question, think of the answer and then turn it over to see if you got it right. Speak in an accent - Learning words and definitions

Read things out loud in different accents or voices. Then when you are trying to recall the facts, youll remember the accent and then hopefully the fact too. Try Scottish, Australian or Welsh or any other accents you can think of. Record yourself reading important notes and mentioning important points, listen to the recordings over and over while saying them out aloud it will help you memorise.
