Whether you are in Primary School or at the university level, as long as you are learning, there are always ways to make yourself learn better.
Here are 4 essential skills and approach I take, FYI.
Study Skills – When I was taking my Masters of Science in Management of Technology at the National University of Singapore, the learning journey was riddled with challenges of reading academic papers – luckily I have some success in Speed Reading (not just read fast, it must come with comprehension) – and Jim Kwik from MindValley is super in it. Now, I can literally read 3-4 books per week, from 1-2 books per month. (yes, there are a few books that will be teaching me how to do nothing if you scrutinize the titles on the top deck).
The other one is Team-Work (from Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing – I tend to skip the fifth and last one). Harvard Business Review shared on the 3 important critical success factors to Team performance: a compelling direction, a strong structure, and a supportive context. This will allow you to better value the power of group vs. team; how to reach consensus, how to agree to disagree, and achieve self- and team- success.
Another skill I think is important, is Notes-Taking. Many students even use the same color as the ink showed on the MS Powerpoint in their notes. Do look at the Two-Column Note-Taking method (from Cornell University) + 5Rs (Record, Reduce [Question], Recite, Reflect, Review) via Google or your favorite search engine.
I also see much value in the use of “Bullet Journal” https://bulletjournal.com/ – to better help you to focus your time and effort on what is important and urgent.
