Want to spice up your education more? Bored to death of learning? If so, why not introduce Lara into your learning! Here is a sample of one of the things I did to pass part of my science GCSE. Please don't blame me if you use this and fail! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif School can be cool if you know how to handle it!

Another idea is to imagine a level and the things you learn as elements of a level-For example, upon having to learn the Fenctionalist perspective of sociology, I decided to create an imaginary level called "Functionalist Folly." In my mind, I placed things around the "level" and
made artefacts to represent items for learning. For example, in this case, clasped hands of gold meant "concensus." A big boulder represented anomie, as anomie as a very basic definition is without rules and social norms. If anomie is present, according to functionalists, society will go to pot. If a boulder is around, Lara's life goes to pot! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Weird but it works for me-And I want to help people with psychological troubles...disturbing. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif :rolleyes:

Another thing I find useful is to have a certain piece of music playing since I remember music well and totally love it. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

***** TIME: I do not condone anyone who makes it hard for others to learn and/or is a bully. I could go on forever about how such a thing disgusts me to my core but I'll say this-If you think it is funny, please go to this link and may reality kick you hard up the butt! http://www.bullying.org

I have extremely strong views on some things and I'm really proud of it-Hope no one minds. ;)

...a voice from the darkness.....

Hehe, totally an originally idea what I've never seen (if I don't count the email)! :D And totally fun...for You. But for me, I think, learing would became more difficult than that is... Although, first I have to give it a try... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

The whole drawing and Lara are cool also... ;)

That's a great idea, Ocean-Sirius! I never thought of using drawing to aid in learning. My memory is somewhat photographic so I never really have to study much. Just reviewing something once or twice is usually sufficient. I'd get carried away in drawing and not even learn anything, but if it works for you, go for it! That's a cute drawing too :D

When things are rather boring, I will not learn things all that well. However, I will learn interesting things naturally. I can remember pictures and music mainly but I don't do too badly for pure text either. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif It isn't the best drawing I could do but then it was a science exam...not an art exam. :rolleyes:
