Study Technology opens the door to learning and successful application for students of any age
Overcoming the barriers to learning
What is Study Technology?
The Athena School is a part of an international network of schools licensed by Applied Scholastics™ International. As a part of this network the school uses Study Technology developed by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard.
tech• nol• o• gy: (noun) specific methods, materials, and devices used to solve practical problems
The word “Technology” is used because students are taught to apply a specific method to the materials they are studying in order to gain a greater understanding. This method was developed by Mr. Hubbard when he discovered the primary barriers to a student’s comprehension.
Students are directly taught to apply this innovative method for studying through a series of study skills courses. With both teacher and student using the same study method this creates a powerful educational team which results in high academic achievement, good communication with the student and best of all, happy, motivated and focused students.
How does The Athena School use it?
Our teachers at The Athena School are trained to apply this specific method with their students in the classroom. In addition, the application of the curriculum used at The Athena School has been developed with Study Technology in mind. This powerful combination ensures our students achieve mastery of their subjects before they move onto the next subject.
Study Technology consists of tools and techniques that teachers and students can use to improve their learning rates. Study Technology is not a collection of study tips or memory tricks, but rather a system of learning how to learn. Using Study Technology brings about an understanding that results in the ability to apply what one learns at school, in one’s work and in life.
With Study Technology, a student’s learning difficulties and problems can be a thing of the past.
