The Scientology Website has a new feature. Accessible through the homepage at www.scientology.org, there are 19 sections of the film titled Scientology Handbook–Tools for Life and 19 accompanying free online courses.
The first is one is on the subject of study. Here is what it says:
Consider this for a moment: In all your schooling, did anyone ever teach you how to study something?
Today, people are graduating school unable to read or write at a level adequate to hold a job or deal with life. It is a huge problem. It is not that subjects cannot be learned; what isn’t taught is how to learn. It is the missing step in all education.L. Ron Hubbard filled this gaping hole by supplying the first and only technology of how to study. He discovered the laws on which learning is based and developed workable methods for anyone to apply. He called this subject “Study Technology.”
This technology provides an understanding of the basics of learning and supplies exact ways to overcome all the pitfalls one can encounter during study.
Study Technology is not speed-reading or memory tricks. These have not been proven to raise one’s ability to comprehend what was studied or to raise literacy. Study Technology shows howone studies in order to comprehend a subject so one can apply it.
Contained herein is only a small portion of the entire body of Study Technology developed by Mr. Hubbard. Regardless, this brief overview contains fundamentals which you can use to study more effectively. With this technology, any subject can be learned by anyone.
