Learning to learn -- knowing how to absorb and apply information correctly -- is a fundamental skill because it provides the key that opens the door to lifelong learning. Adults, children and adolescents all pursue self-planned learning activities. It is estimated that 90 percent of all adults complete at least one self-directed learning activity per year. Improving the management of adult learning efforts results in greater speed and success in learning, increased confidence, and increased willingness to take on new challenges.
A basic element in achieving this skill is knowing how one best learns. Therefore, knowing about one's learning style is essential. In the workplace "learning to learn" means being a more efficient and active learner and enables employees to learn new skills more effectively.
