My advice to follow students

Today I wanted to write a blogpost with my friend Erlend. His blogg is named “blogatschool” on WordPress. Our task today was to write a short blogpost about how to learn cleverly. The goal is to help you guys to get a better learning technique that you can use in school.

The most popular learning technique that I know about is called the “promodoro technique”. This technique is all about to get rid of all distractions around you to help you to go inside the flow when you works. To get inside the flow, you need a big focus. The Promodoro technique want you to have focus just on one spesial thing/only one thing to work with in only 25 minutes. The scientists have proofs that the first 20 minutes when you are working with something ,will your brain automatically begin to thing about everything else. You will start to think about every distractions around you, like facebook, snapchat and other thing like your self phone. We can call this distractions a pain in your brain. But when you have past the 25 minutes will you have passed the pain, and already worked in 5 minutes without distractions. When we are working without distractions will we be in the flow. But if you’re not in the flow, can you take a break and try again later.

Another technique is when you are reading something, and later are asking yourself questions about the text. If you are refreshing the subject enough times from the text, will you remember it to the test. And the best way to prepare to the test is if you do this over several days.


My class debate

In my class today, I was told to make an debate about a theme me and my partner Christian rapp disagreed about. We agreed together to argument about the famous “Bunadene” in Norway. My task was to protect the Bunad, and it’s reputation with good pro-facts and arguments, and Christian would tell about all the Con-Facts about them. My goal with this debate was to win it, but also to show my vision and thoughts about the Norwegian “Bunads”. We had two spectators under the debate about the “bunadene”, and they agreed with me that I had the best arguments in this conversation. Sow I can proud say that I won this debate, but I want to say it was a draw, because I left the debate   when we past 5 minutes in our video. Although I think we made a good debate, and I am really happy with the results.

In order to have a good conversation with an other person, do you have to follow your own instinct or you can follow the “rules/tips” that will help you to be better at having a good conversation.

This is the list with “rules/tips” that should be used when you have a conversation:

  • Don’t multitask
  • have full concentration on the subject
  • Lisen to the other part with both ears
  • Use open-ended questions
  • Be polite
  • Don’t interrupt the other part
  • Show respect
  • reflect questions
  • if you can, use humor to break up the ice

My Journey begins

Hello there guys, and welcome to my first blogg. I hope you like it, and will follow me through the evolving of the blogg.

My name is Tom-Vegar Moen, and I am a student from Sandvika high school in Norway. I am approximately half Norwegian, and half French. I was born in the United States of America. The 9th of November 2002 was I given birth in a hospital in Waukesha. Waukesha is a city in the state Wisconsin, and I was living in a house with my French mom and Norwegian dad and sister. We lived in the United States of America in two years, before my parents decided to move to Norway. We moved to Nesøya to settle down as a family, until this day, I still live in the latterly mentioned location. In my first teen years did i go to Landøya middle school. I have just now started at the 1. STG class as a sophomore in Sandvika high school. The spesial thing about my class is that everyone are spesilfized in IT or business.

We are now in the second week of high school, and i really like it. I have been better known with my classmate, and already started to create some friendships. I really seems forward to the class expedition to “Nordmarka” just outside of Oslo city. The trip is organised by the school, and is an attempt to help students to be better known with each other. The trip is before two weeks, but i seems forward to it and hope I will spend a good time. I really likes the nature and is one of my biggest interests and hobbies.

But I have manny hobbies and interests in my life. In a age of four did I start to play football for Nesøya IL, and i have almost played two times every week, the last 12 years. I am now on Nesøya  U-16 team, and we are winning our devision. I also plays table tennis for Fornebu BTK. Fornebu BTK is Norways best table tennis team. The best placement I have ever got is an second place in double with Kristian Kulseng, and a 3 place in single. Both of the tournaments was a East-Region competition. Slalom is also really fun, and i enjoy skiing with my friends in “Tryvann”, “Kirkerud” and “Geilo”. The last big interest i have is RC-car driving. Me and a friend have bought some RC-cars, and have made some youtube-videos of us driving around.
