1. Create your own Socratic tutor.

  • By far, the most common use readers reported was using an LLM as a personal tutor.
  • Asking ChatGPT to explain tricky concepts, unfamiliar code or problems seems like an area where LLMs might do alright.
  • Challenge explanations that don’t jive with what you’ve read in the book rather than taking everything the AI says at face value.

The next most common way people used LLMs to learn better was as a language tutor. This seems like a task LLMs are well-equipped for. Whatever their other flaws, they can produce grammatically correct text.

5. Rewrite texts at different levels of explanatory depth.

  • A major difficulty in following expert thinking is that most expert-level text is written for other experts.

Concepts are unexplained, context is lacking and jargon abounds.

This means that most people must rely on translators, such as general-market nonfiction or science writers, who present what experts think in a more readable format.

8. Provide refreshers on forgotten or infrequently used tools.

The place LLMs seem to work really well is at the fringes of a programmer’s expertise.

Many programmers said that they found AI helpful in getting starting hints in unfamiliar languages or tools.

9. Generate flashcards based on text. (Tentative)

Flashcards are a powerful learning tool. They’re also a pain in the butt to make.

Nonetheless, making flashcards is tedious, so getting a first draft that later review might speed up the process considerably.

The risks seem relatively limited if you confirm the cards’ correctness before putting them in your deck.

Searching via keywords is fraught because sometimes you can’t remember the exact term you used, even if the meaning is roughly the same.

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!
