Map of Learning

Map of Learning by iCanStudy

This map of learning shows a general outline of the principles we considered when designing the course. Each variable that contributes to an efficient learner has been evaluated against evidence and real-world experience.

Some of these points involve considerable cognitive difficulty. Therefore the training may involve multiple lessons interspersed throughout the course to help facilitate smooth development. Most points on the map are covered by multiple lessons.
