Ways to Remember what you Learn

I just finished a Linked in Learning course that explained why we forget what we learn and how to improve. HInt - writing this list is one way to help improve my retention of the material. Following are some others:

Ways to Remember what you Learn

    1. Reduce Absentmindedness

    To reduce this, they suggest that we try to be present. One way to focus on the moment (for example when you are meeting someone) is to repeat their name when you hear it.

    2. Remove Distractions while learning

    You’ve already heard this: Multi-tasking is the devil. You can’t do it. So just stop.

    3. Sleep more

    4. Reduce complexity by chunking

    The best way to retain information is to link it or chunk with something you already know.

    5. Practice recall

    For me - this is SRS or writing things down that I have just learned (like a name)

    6. Interleave your learning

    This struck a cord with me. When I was a kid, I would practice the same math problem over and over again only to be stuck when I got to a test and it didn’t ask for a specific result, it just showed me the diagram. What do I do? They recommend that you practice with different problems, different situations so that you are prepared

    7. Use a mind palace if you need to remember something that has a certain order

    8. Repeat someone’s name three times in a conversation, starting with : Nice to meet you, First Name.

    9. Remember events/ tasks by cuing yourself with alarms, notes, adding events to your calendar as soon as you agree to them.
