A Breakthrough in Learning
Study Technology is the breakthrough that undercuts the reasons people are illiterate. It is not just another system. Study Technology is a workable methodology that makes it possible for a person to recognize and handle the barriers to successful study.
There had never before existed a true technology of study. There had been a technology of schooling, as L. Ron Hubbard—the developer of Study Technology—put it, including the shaping of curriculum and planning of lessons. There had also been much on the theory of teaching. Yet study as the route to grasping ideas and mastering abilities had been neglected. Study Technology has filled this void.
Study Technology centers on the understanding of three main principles, known as the barriers to study. Knowledge of these three barriers can make it possible for anyone to recognize when they encounter one or more of these barriers and then proceed to overcome them.
