The Learning Senses
establish  goals,  and  let  them  know  you  expect  them  to  meet  those  goals.  Motivate  students  by providing   positive   reinforcement   as   they   proceed   from   success   to   success.   That   is   the   basis   of the  law  of  effect. LAW   OF   PRIMACY Based  on  the  law  of  primacy,  students  retain  information  they  learn  for  the  first  time  longer than  they  retain  information  they  must  relearn.  Unlearning  incorrect  procedures  (or  bad  habits) is  always  more  difficult  than  learning  the  correct  procedures  in  the  beginning.  Therefore,  the law  of  primacy  plays  an  important  role  in  Navy  training.  Navy  training  courses  allow  a  limited amount   of   time   for   learning   do   not   include   time   for   students   to   relearn   improperly   taught information.  Make  sure  you  teach  the  correct  information  and  procedures  the  first  time; proceed   from   the   simple   to   the   complex,   from   the   known   to   the   unknown.   Clarify misunderstandings  and  errors  before  moving  on.  Remember,  your  students  must  be  ready  to learn   new   material. LAW   OF   EXERCISE This  law  is  based  on  the  old  maxim  that  practice  makes  perfect.  It  has  been  proven  that students   learn   best   and   retain   information   longer   when   they   have   meaningful   practice   and repetition.  The  key  here  is  that  the  practice  must  be  meaningful.  It  is  clear  that  practice  leads to  improvement  only  when  it  is  followed  by  positive  feedback.  That  means  that  as  an  instructor, you  need  to  follow  upon  every  homework  assignment,  every  lab  exercise,  and  any  other  student activities  you  assign.  Students  must  have  supervised  practice  in  applying  new  skills  to  reach  the required  level  of  expertise  to  master  course  objectives. That   is   how   the   transfer   method   of learning   takes   place;   from   the   information   you   teach,   to   the   students’   use   of   it. LAW   OF   INTENSITY The  law  of  intensity  states  that  a  vivid  experience  is  learned  better  and  retained  longer.  Make your   instruction   powerful   enough   to   have   a   strong,   positive   effect   on   your   students   by   getting them  actively  involved  in  the  lesson. Instruction   that   allows   students   to   sit   passively   in   the classroom  doesn’t  have  much  intensity.  You  can  talk  about  the  effects  of  tear  gas  all  day.  But talking   will   never   have   the   same   impact   as   putting   students   in   a   controlled   environment   and letting  them  experience  tear  gas  without  a  gas  mask.  That  is   Intensity. Use  the  best  instructional  media  available,  including  the  real  thing.  Use  examples,  analogies, and  personal  experiences  to  make  learning  come  to  life.  Make  learning  interactive  by  initiating and  controlling  your  students’  involvement  in  the  learning  process. FACTORS   AFFECTING   LEARNING Many  factors  affect  learning.  Everyone  does  not  learn  in  exactly  the  same  way  or  at  the  same rate.  Each  is  subject  to  a  variety  of  negative  and  positive  influences  in  the  overall  process.  You 24
