Why Improve Your Memory?

Most people think memory is all about remembering things. However, if we delve deeper we start to realise and unlock the amazing potential of what our minds can achieve.

How To Become A Memory Champion

EACH YEAR PEOPLE of many nations come together for the World Memory Championships, where participants sit and memorise for an allotted time. Once memorisation time finishes, a recall period is given allowing competitors to show what they remembered. The purpose of the competition is to see who has the best and most effective memory.

Are You A Learning Disruptor?

Most of us have undergone our entire education life through rote learning. The ability to try and remember information through repetition. The majority of the world still works this way, and probably will for some time still. As learners and educators, we take this as the standard and only way of learning. Yes of course other methods are acknowledged. However when it comes down to it, at the end of the day, the safety and ease of rote learning wins out…Continue reading
