LEARNING

"NOTHING EVER COMES TO ONE THAT IS WORTH
HAVING EXCEPT AS THE RESULT OF HARD WORK."
- BOOKER T. WASHINGTON

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

Did you know, that without practice you'll forget almost everything you hear, read, or study in 30 days?

The only way to master a skill or retain knowledge is to practice. THE SPACING EFFECT is a way to schedule learning over time to align with the natural process of memory formation.

So what happens when you cram for a test? You may remember the information the next day, but after you pass the test, your knowledge begins to fade. Without practice, the time and effort you put towards learning - is wasted.

WHY DID WE USE TO LEARN THIS WAY?

It began when education was formalized. Students moved out of apprenticeships, focused on the individual, into classrooms where they learned as group. Schools, only available at certain times and places, rely on schedules to run efficiently.

But these constraints of time and place no longer apply. Today we have the tools to offer flexible programs tailored to the individual.

SO WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO LEARN?

The answer to that is different for every person, and for every discipline - but Allogy is committed to three core principles:

1. Be driven by your curiosity

2. Have access to the best content

3. Learn within a community of practice where your knowledge and skills are put to the test, and mentors stand ready to offer a hand

HOW CAN TECHNOLOGY HELP?

Technology is effective when used to bring together the best elements of formal, classroom learning with practical experience in real world settings.

Allogy provides the flexibility to bring learning into its ideal environment: the workplace, travel, public service, or mission - blending media, coaching, and practical experience.
