Effective Learner is an app that is used with NeuroSky MindWave headset to monitor the effectiveness of your learning through measuring the focus level.

The Effective Learner app uses a NeuroSky's brainwave-sensing headset to detect your learning effectiveness. The app has two modes of use; Effectiveness tracker, and the EDAFIN Study Trainer. The Effectiveness Tracker shows your current focus level and effectiveness as 6 different color-coded levels, and provides a session report, which includes a time plot of your effectiveness for the duration of study and a pie chart of different color percentage. The Session reports can be saved with a note into a searchable journal for future reference and analysis. Study trainer combines the Pomodoro timing method with customized learning rhythms based on your brain activity. The system allows you to compare your learning results to the effectiveness shown by your brain activity. It also provides study tips to help you plan your study sessions effectively.

How it Works

When you are effective, you can absorb more and retain more. If you are not effective, try changing your learning method, switching to a different task, or taking a rest. The Effective Learner app uses a NeuroSky's brainwave sensing headset to detect your learning effectiveness and show it as 6 different color coded levels, so you can gauge your effectiveness with a quick glance.

Our brains are made up of billions of tiny brain cells, called neurons. When we learn something new, some of the neurons fire together. New wiring will grow between them so they become connected together. The next time when one of the neurons fires, all the other connected neurons will also fire. This is how you learn to speak a new language, dribble a basketball, and everything else. You must pay high attention during learning so the right neurons fire at the same time and get wired together. The strength of this new wiring depends on how deep an impression the learning experience left you with. Even a deep negative impression can create strong wiring. Weak impression leads to weak wiring, which is easily overwritten and forgotten. In that case, you will have to strengthen the wiring with repetition to retain the learning.

With the Effective Learner, you will study less and play more!

Increased my work speed by more than 200%

I subscribed to Study Trainer in Effective Learner and use it to direct my working schedule. Work hard when it told me to work, and rest when it told me to relax. I also look at the report and realized I am most effective when I am studying alone early in the morning with classical music playing. I changed my work habits accordingly and are able to finish my work in half the time it used to take me. Highly recommend you subscribe to Study Trainer.
