PER OUR EXPERIENCE
Over the last few years, during training for a dispatcher position, our students came from different fields, and we have had the opportunity to try out several different approaches. One of the problems that our students encountered was the effective way of remembering all the states within the United States of America.
TO LEARN BY HEART OR TO ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND A TOPIC
Whether it was a few 1 on 1 lessons focused specifically on the learning of all countries, or home-work, after each lesson that involved learning one or more areas on the map, the retention of memorized information was simply not good enough. When we talk about the responsibilities of this job and the information that a dispatcher must have, a very small percentage of the total knowledge is learned “by heart”.
The main goal is to create a unique sense towards the daily obstacles encountered by the dispatcher, for the region in which his truck is located at that moment so that a situation that seemed unsolvable at first can become a manageable one.
YOU SIMPLY CAN NOT WORK AS A DISPATCHER WITHOUT THIS
However, in addition to the intuition that is an integral part of a successful dispatcher, when we talk about the map of the United States, knowing the good and bad regions as well as individual states was something that simply had to be memorized.
WE HAVE A GREAT WAY FOR YOU TO GET THE KNOWLEDGE BY PLAYING A GAME
This is the Settera website. Setera is a site where you can learn geographical areas through a quiz format, in a way that allows interaction and collecting points, like a game. It is also available in an application form suitable for Android and iOS phones, so you can play this quiz from any device. The quiz works very simply: the site shows the name of the country you are looking for, and it is up to you to mark that country with just one click. If you miss the selection one or more times, the site will indicate in which region the requested country is located.
REPETITION IS THE KEY
In the beginning, the point is to repeat the quiz until you have learned all the countries. Later, once you have mastered all the states, you can improve your knowledge through a time-limited game. Maybe it took you four minutes to guess everything for the first time. When you reached the tenth time, you would finish the quiz in about 2 minutes.
Participants in our Online Dispatcher Course have chosen this principle of learning as the best and most interesting when it comes to remembering states within America.
