The Power of Asking How | Olav Schewe | TEDxWCMephamHigh

So often today we focus on asking 'why.' Olav Schewe, author of Super Student talks about the power of asking 'how' and how that leads to success both in and out of the classroom. Olav Schewe is an entrepreneur and author who is passionate about helping others improve the way they learn. His book on how to study smarter, Super Student, has been translated to 13 languages, and is a best-seller in his native country, Norway. Olav became interested in learning about learning while in high school. There, he was an average student, struggling to improve his grades despite being highly motivated and dedicated. After he discovered learning techniques, and improved the way he studied, that changed. Eventually, he became High School Valedictorian, was offered a Fulbright Scholarship and graduated from the University of Oxford with Distinction. Olav believes in the power of study techniques and that anyone can succeed with learning. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
