Methods of Teaching and Learning
Barriers to Study
Study Technology is a method of teaching based on
L. Ron Hubbard’s discovery of the Barriers to Study.
What are the three primary barriers to study?
They are the factors that prevent people from
learning and becoming educated and trained. Overcoming the barriers
to study makes an important contribution to educating the individual
and therefore the society, building capacity in the education system
and other sectors, and in stimulating economic development.
Despite all that has been written on the subject
of study, these three barriers were never previously isolated as
having such importance in effective education.
We are not talking about attention deficit
disorder, emotional problems, dyslexia or stupidity. A student who
comes up against one of the Barriers to Study experiences certain
emotional or physical reactions and can be trained to recognize
these in themselves or in students they are instructing.
Students fail to learn because no one has ever
taught them how to learn, that is, how to identify the barriers to
learning, and how to overcome them.
For communities and local and national
governments, the social impact of illiteracy and the consequent
effects of having a section of the population disadvantaged or
unemployable are only too well known. Having part of a population
dependent or destitute is also a waste of human resources when there
is such a need for skilled people. People who need to be supported
rather than contributing to the general economic wellbeing of
society are a further drag on development.
