Spaced Repetition

Updated: Feb 20, 2023

Although it has been lost to the ages, like so many other things, here is an approach is incredibly effective for learning, recall and retention. This post is of enormous importance to just about everyone - so do share it with all your loved ones as well as your friends and colleagues. For those students and young adults who attend my Nirmiti Nidra workshop, I impart specific approaches for learning and retention, aided by the subconscious mind. However, this gyan here can be easily implemented by everyone.

Have you ever wondered why you forget most of the information you are taught in school and subsequently in college but retain only a portion of it for most of your life? There would be "brighter" kids who could remember material for a longer period if schools and institutions followed this technique. That calls for major curricular modernization, adaptation, and reduction, all of which I doubt will take place soon.

Although it seems like a basic idea, there is a lot we don't know about learning. We may employ feedback loops to enhance our learning, for instance, or the fact that we each have a unique learning style, neither of which we are aware about - but that is for another day.

In this article, we discuss "Spaced Repetition," a potent method that anyone who wants to learn, retain and recall what they learn can use.

We must routinely and at set intervals update whatever information we want to keep in our brains. Say, for illustration, that you learn that Lima is Peru's capital. If you don't use that information at all, you'll probably forget about it after reading this post or later. However, you'll be more likely to remember this information for a very long time if you keep reading or telling others that "Lima is the capital of Peru" again.

You won't need to review specific information as frequently if you encounter it frequently.

Ron and Marty write that "Our memory is equally amazing and pitiful" in the book Mindhacker. "Although technology is capable of amazing things, it never performs exactly as we would like. In a perfect world, we would have rapid recall, but we are not machines. We use tools like memory palaces to manipulate our memories, but these strategies demand commitment and work. Most of us give up and rely on our cell phones, cloud-enabled PCs, or plain old pen and paper to store our memories. A learning method known as spaced repetition, which effectively organises knowledge or memorization, and retention, can be utilised to attain almost perfect recall, offers a compromise.”

According to psychology, retention and recall are influenced by the following variables in the exact same order: -

1. The intensity of our feelings on that specific topic.

2. How strongly we are drawn to or interested in that topic.

3. The frequency of repetition.

Think about how you can recall or remember some names but not others. Got it?

What you must do for efficient learning and ideal recall is as follows:

1. Review your notes first

Make sure the material is put down in notes and that you have examined them for short-term retention within 20–24 hours of the first information intake. You should read them during the review period, then turn your head to the side to try to remember the key details.

Rereading is not the same as recalling, so make sure you look away and use your memories instead.

2. First-time recall of the information

Try to remember the details without using your notes as much a day later. Try to think of times when you are relaxing by sitting down or going for a walk.

Making flashcards of the key topics and taking self-assessment tests on the principles will also help you work more efficiently.

3. Bring up the Material Once More

Then, over the period of many days, review the information every 24-36 hours. There is no requirement that they last for hours. When you're waiting in line or on an elevator, try having a memory session. While working with those notes, attempt recalling while looking at your notes or flashcards. To store and retrieve this information in your long-term memory, the goal of this stage is to quiz and ask yourself questions.

4. Go through it once more.

Take out your material and review it once more after a few days have gone. Make sure to complete this within a week of the test if the information is for one. This enables your brain to digest ideas again.
