Today’s business landscape is becoming increasingly digital with each passing day. Going digital is inescapable, whether in marketing, as a student, or when going through your daily routines. Learning digital skills effectively is crucial for everyone. The good news is that there are time-tested techniques that have helped me learn digital skills through my studies or throughout my career. As for the tips themselves, you will be surprised by how straightforward they are. Moreover, these are tips that you can apply right now!

Tip #1: Stop Multi-Tasking

Distractions like fiddling, going through your phones, browsing social media feeds, or watching videos, won’t help the learning process. As for any process of learning, concentration is crucial. Everything in the digital world evolves quickly. Being distracted means that you might miss the chance to demystify new concepts, learn new skills, or simply pick up items that solve problems.

Tip #2: Take Notes Using Pen and Paper

Many people might think taking notes using old-school tools seems ironic, especially when learning something cutting-edge, such as the latest digital concepts. However, taking notes using paper offers many advantages:

  • Taking notes helps learners recall easily
  • Notes lay everything out in an organized way

There are no strict rules on how you should be taking notes. However, the suggested methods are:

  • Taking notes through outlines
  • Using your own system of abbreviations
  • Place exclamation marks to emphasize crucial items

Tip #3: Pause

Learning new concepts can be overwhelming to some. The flow of information can be too much to digest. One way to ensure you learn everything is by pausing, for instance, every thirty minutes. This doesn’t mean stopping totally. Pausing provides the learner an opportunity to do the following:

  • Catch up
  • Reflect on how these new concepts impact yourself, your business, and your life
  • Think about how to use the new things you learned in real-life situations
  • Formulate your own questions to demystify specific concepts for later

Tip #4: Implement Everything You Learned Right Away

Don’t waste time hesitating to apply everything you learn about anything digital. Today’s digital environment moves rapidly. Every moment wasted could mean valuable resources vanish. The crucial concept of everything digital is testing what you have learned. Whether you learned about social media or coding, you must try using your new skills immediately. Learning about the results quickly can validate what you learned immediately or lead to ideas that can help you formulate a better solution fit for your needs.

Tip #5: Teach

Teaching is one of the most effective ways to learn. Planning to teach helps learners absorb concepts quickly, demystify challenging and new concepts, and structure information to enable others to learn as well. There are three advantages of teaching what you learned:

  • Absorbing information quickly
  • Enabling other people to find solutions for you
  • Exploring new ideas yourself as you teach
