Active Recall

Active Recall

Active recall is crucial for effective learning because it involves actively retrieving information from memory rather than passively reviewing material. This process strengthens neural connections, making it more likely for the information to be retained in the long term. By actively engaging with the material through practices like self-quizzing,using flashcards,summarizing without looking at notes, learners reinforce their understanding and enhance the recallability of information.

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!

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!
