The Power of Process: Understanding Your Learning Curve in the EduTech Age

The world is changing faster than ever, and education is no longer a one-time event.  It’s a continuous process of acquiring new skills and adapting to stay ahead of the curve. This is where EkoTech comes in! We are passionate about helping you maximize your learning potential.  The secret weapon? Understanding your learning curve.

What is the Learning Curve?

The Cambridge dictionary defines learning curve as the rate of someone’s progress in learning a new skill. The learning curve was first described by psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus in 1885 in the field of the psychology of learning.

A learning curve is a graphical representation of the relationship between how proficient people are at a task and the amount of experience they have. Proficiency (measured on the vertical axis) usually increases with increased experience (the horizontal axis), that is to say, the more someone, groups, companies or industries perform a task, the better their performance at the task.

The learning curve represents the relationship between the time or effort invested in learning a new skill and the proficiency achieved.  Initially, learning is slow as you encounter new concepts and build foundational knowledge.  However, as you practice and gain experience, the learning curve steepens, signifying rapid progress.  Eventually, the curve plateaus as you reach a point of mastery.

Why is Understanding Your Learning Curve Important?

Understanding your learning curve can help you achieve these four things:

  1. Identify Your Learning Style: Learning varies for individuals, some individual learn best visually, while others prefer hands-on experiences or auditory explanations. Understanding your preferred learning style allows you to choose the right learning strategies.
  2. Set Realistic Expectations: Avoid frustration by recognizing that initial slow progress is normal. Celebrate small wins and adjust your learning pace as needed.
  3. Track Your Progress: Review your progress regularly to identify areas requiring additional focus and celebrate milestones achieved.
  4. Develop Growth Mindset: Recognizing that learning involves plateaus and setbacks can help you adopt a growth mindset. View these challenges as opportunities to refine your approach and solidify your knowledge.
