The Super MRT (Memory-Reading-Thinking) Workshop 2017 Edition!


Used my 'Flinstones Tablet' to draw four doodle cartoons and then took pictures of them. After that, I imported the four pictures, removed the backgrounds (changed 'Color'), and finally fused them into my PowerPoint slide animating the four stages of learning:

  1. Unconscious Incompetence
  2. Conscious Incompetence
  3. Conscious Competence
  4. Unconscious Competence

With Marc Prensky and my 'Flintstones Tablet'


In this 1-day workshop, you will explore various technology and non-technology techniques to stimulate and empower the brain and senses to be more focused, remember faster, speed read, and think more creatively. In the process, we will discuss how the brain learns, and how we can apply various focus and memorization techniques to improve our ability to remember through visualization, association and imagination. Then, we will learn how to apply the SQ3R method to enhance our reading skills, and various techniques to improve our reading speed. Finally, we will explore our creative minds by adventuring into 2-3 creative thinking tools. It is a fully hands-on workshop with a lot of fun and gamified-activities to inspire participation.


At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
  • Use at least 2 techniques to improve your focus;
  • Use at least 3 techniques to improve your memory;
  • Apply the SQ3R method to enhance your reading skills;
  • Use at least 3 techniques to increase your reading speed; and
  • Apply at least 2 creative thinking tools to improve your creativity.


Here we go:


A University or College empowers me (project) to coach their worst 100 students (according to their criteria) for 6 months, and then see what happens. The institution will probably evaluate the success of the 6 months project based on the students academic and examination results, while I will focus on their 21st century learning skills development :)
