Retrieval practice

Retrieval practice

Recalling an answer to a question improves learning more than looking for the answer in your textbook. remembering and writing down the answer to a flashcard is a lot more effective than thinking you know the answer and flipping the card over early. These are the things that you can do for this:-

  1. Utilize practice tests = use practice tests and questions to quiz yourself. 
  2. Make your questions = Think like a teacher and frame questions for yourself.
  3. Use flashcards = Make flashcards but make sure you use your retrieval technique not just flipping the cards.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
