A useful site that I used in my last class called Mind Tools. This site provides lots of good tools to sharpen your problem solving skills and overall learning skills. It contains lots of self-evaluation quiz that are useful in analyzing how good you’re learning and problem solving skill are at this moment. It also provides tips and advice to improve those skills. The website also has a lot of good information and self-evaluation quizzes on other topics such as leadership, communication, project management, decision making, career skills, strategy tools, stress management, time management, and creativity.
An interesting site I came across while researching different websites on the brain and learning is a site called Brain Metrix. It is a website that calls itself the gym for the brain. It has exercises that supposed to help your brain process information more quickly and efficiently. It also provides several self-evaluating quizzes and games that are meant to analyze and tune your brain. Lots of the exercises are timed and the goal is to repeat it to increase your brain skills by improving your time. This works kind of like going to the gym and working out your muscles. You first start slow and as you exercise more you increase your rate and weights to gain bigger stronger muscles. Some of these exercises are not easy, now are they actually improving my brain, can’t say for sure but they are fun and can be addictive.
