Barriers to Learning Overfilled class-sizes, economic disadvantages and "learning disorders" are common. Yet underlying all of this, there are three primary barriers that keep one from successfully studying a subject. Despite all that has been written on the subject of study, these three barriers were never isolated as having such importance in effective education. This is not attention deficit disorder, emotional problems, or stupidity at work. This is the emotional or physical reaction a student of any age will experience when encountering one of these barriers to learning. Students fail to learn because no one has ever taught them how to learn - how to identify the barriers to learning and how to overcome them. What are the three primary barriers to learning? The answer is found in the Study Technology given in the book Learning How to Learn, central to which is the delineation of these barriers to study. Never before recognized, these yet constitute the primary reasons for educational failures. Study Technology It was into the face of an academic crisis that L. Ron Hubbard developed his educational methods. Drawn from some four decades of experience as an educator, these methods represent the first comprehensive understanding of the actual barriers to effective learning. Mr. Hubbard further developed a precise technology to overcome those barriers, and thus how to learn and apply anybody of knowledge. In total, his contribution to the field is known as Study Technology and provides the first fully workable approach to teaching students howto learn. It offers methods for recognizing and resolving all difficulties in absorbing material, including a previously unacknowledged barrier that ultimately lies at the bottom of all failures to pursue a given course of study. In short, then, this Study Technology helps anyonelearn anythingand has proven to achieve uniform, consistent results wherever it has been applied. Mr. Hubbard’s study techniques have proven as effective in the elementary school as they have in the executive suites of multinational corporations. Consider this for a moment: in all your schooling, did anyone ever teach you how to study something? Today, people are graduating school unable to read or write at a level adequate to hold a job or deal with life. It is a huge problem. It is not that subjects cannot be learned; what isn’t taught is howto learn. It is the missing step in all education. L. Ron Hubbard filled this gaping hole by supplying the first and only technology of how to study. He discovered the laws on which learning is based and developed workable methods for anyone to apply. He called this subject “Study Technology.” This technology provides an understanding of the basics of learning and supplies exact ways to overcome all the pitfalls one can encounter during study. Study Technology is not speed-reading or memory tricks. These have not been proven to raise one’s ability to comprehend what was studied or to raise literacy. Study Technology enables one to comprehend a studied subject so one can then apply it. Contained herein is only a small portion of the entire body of Study Technology developed by Mr. Hubbard. Regardless, this brief overview contains fundamentals which you can use to study more effectively. With this technology, you can learn any subject, and so can anyone else. * Do you have difficulty learning new things at work? * Do you have a shelf full of books you never finished? * Do you know someone who is having trouble in school?
