Strategy: The Key to Active Learning in Poker

Strategy: The Key to Active Learning

What is active learning and how to use it properly when learning poker? SCOOP champion, author and coach Gareth James addressed the topic in a thread he created on Twitter.

He had this to say:

Active learning puts you, the student, in charge of your own learning. It forces you to actively and/or experientially participate in the learning process. This allows you to focus on the topic rather than passively absorbing information.

Receive, engage, and act (active) more effectively than verbal or visual thinking (passive). We remember 10% of what we read, 20% of what we hear, 30% of what we see, 50% of what we hear and see, 70% of what we say and 90% of what we do.

So things like focus groups, doing presentations, exploring exercises, or coaching/exercises on specific points are more effective than reading articles, listening to podcasts, watching training videos, or interpreting plays.

Here are some examples of active learning:

Examples applied to poker research

Discuss learning sessions with other players

. TEACHING Pick a topic and teach a friend. Group work group study sessions. Listen intensively during your study sessions. Ask questions and write down issues that arise during the lesson. Take Notes Take notes while watching a video. Role Play Postflop – Practice with DTO.
