Hello. My name is Kelson. I come from a family
of Chinese origins who settled in Malaysia
before moving over to Singapore. Having
influenced doubly by two sides to do repetition
learning, I am deeply rooted to the brute force
method of memorizing.
When I was young, my mother taught me the
alphabets already. This enhanced my learning
experience and I breezed through primary school,
except for my PSLE. I under-performed and only
achieved 254, instead of the expected 266 score
as I was in the Gifted Education Program.
From then, I started to question my learning
techniques. After much thought, I discovered
that my memory was very bad. In my family, I was
often the one who would misplace things. Up till
now, I still do.
Then I came to Secondary School. As I was
ignorant of memory techniques, I continued to
use repetition memorization. However, as I was
good in my subjects, I was able to achieve a
relatively acceptable score.
Now, in Secondary 2, things start to get harder.
Mathematical equations and chemical equations
have many rules, which need to be memorized. New
words in Chinese and English are needed to be
known. More and more facts needed to memorize in
Geography and History. The amount of information
That was why I decided to do this project. I
discovered how my memory can be improved
dramatically and help my life a lot, but I still
cannot change. I have grown too reliant on the
brute force method to use the new memory
techniques. That is why I hope that my project
can help out the new generation to have much
better memory than their predecessors.
Many difficulties and obstacles were in our way when we started this project. With Joseph Lee to help organize things, we managed to successfully get our information. As I am in charge of the content of the website, it was up to me to do most of the content for our group. Luckily, my group members helped me out by editing, helping me to do some of the content which I had no idea how to do. Although I had to do a lot very well in a short time, with the help of my group members, we managed to produce top quality work.
