Developing Independent Study skills: Front Line Teaching for Front Line Learners
Effective study skills that develop the thinking skills of the learner with dyslexia has been demonstrated to be an effective factor in helping the learner to compensate for their learning difference. It is not the smartest student who achieves their potential; it is the student who knows how to study, (Tonjes and Zintz, 1981).Study skills are those competencies associated with acquiring, recording, organising, synthesizing, remembering and using information, (Devine, 1981). It has been argued that technology can motivate students with dyslexia (Smythe, 2010). This course offered by Jane Dupree an expert both in study skills and use of technology for remote learning, will marry the two, helping an educator to plan a successful study skills.
