• Always when you want to learn

It is not easy to learn how to learn, while it is an essential ability in a complex changeable society.

• Humans are not able to learn everything because their time and memory are limited.

• There are several ways to study.

Learn the ‘knack’ of learning from the experienced learners, and design your way of learning based on them.

• You can work on your activity with learning patterns which tells you the knack of effective learning.

• First, read roughly whole patterns to understand what learning patterns is like, especially the first half of each pattern; pattern name, introduction, illustration, and context. It is better to remember the pattern name and the illustration.

• Read the detail of patterns in which you are interested. There are description of Problem, difficulties why the problem is a hard to solve as Forces, Solution, and Actions which are for solving the problem.

• You can find a learning pattern according to your situation by using the list of Contexts.

• Use Pattern Names of their learning patterns as a common language, when you talk about learning with other students or teachers.
