Accelerated Learning Techniques

For more than 10 years I have been interested in education and the systems used for education. My primary focus and intention was to satisfy my personal curiosity and because of that I have been a strong supporter of student oriented modular education which is now also known as the ‘ cafetaria’ model, education a la carte or pick and mix education.
As a student I wrote a paper (thesis) about developments and possibilities of education using the Internet. When you study didactic material about learning and teaching you will come across learning preferences in the form of learning styles: auditory (learning by hearing), visual (learning by seeing) and kinesthetic (learning by doing). But also the Theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI) originally developed by Howard Gardner. The intelligences are:

  • Linguistic intelligence (“word smart”):
  • Logical-mathematical intelligence (“number/reasoning smart”)
  • Spatial intelligence (“picture smart”)
  • Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence (“body smart”)
  • Musical intelligence (“music smart”)
  • Interpersonal intelligence (“people smart”)
  • Intrapersonal intelligence (“self smart”)
  • Naturalist intelligence (“nature smart”)

As a coach and entrepreneur I encourage on the general concept of Life Long Learning: one must continue to improve him or herself, not only because of external force by an employer or professional peer group, but especially because of personal motivation and interest in a changing technological, economical and social environment.

In todays Information Society we also have to look into enhanced forms of literacy, not only the ability to read and write, the conventional or functional Literacy but also Computer Literacy (the ability to use computers for writing and E-mail communication), Information Literacy and Media Literacy.

Accelerated Learning Techniques have been investigated for several years. I found really good resources at Win Wenger’s Project Renaissance. Following the recommended links I found a generations overview of Accelerated Learning Techniques:

The First Generation – Tricks And Tools That Really Work

Memory Systems

Creativity Strategies


Speed Reading
Math Strategies

The Second Generation – Tapping The Unconscious

Image Streaming


The Third Generation – Aligning The Unconscious



Although this is a preview (dated 2004?) by Matthew Turco; this accelerated learning overview offers me a nice opportunity to combine and position tricks, creativity, NLP, Psychology and Energy work.
Any other overviews on the subject are really welcome…..
