Meta-learning

Meta-learning is when you learn about how much you know and don’t know in a particular domain.

Meta-learning is important because it’s easy to delude yourself into believing you know more than you actually do.

Problem Solving

  • Familiarity is the sense that you’ve seen something before. That feeling of, “ah, I’ve seen this before,” is commonly confused with actually being able to recollect said information. 
  • Recollection is much more than familiarity. To recollect something, you need to be able to produce the answer without prompt.
  • When something feels familiar, but you can’t actually recollect it when self-testing, you have an incorrect assumption about your own knowledge.
  • Self-testing: Doing practice problems, flashcard reviews or even creating your own questions gives you the chance to see past familiarity and get more accurate information about what you know and don’t know.
  • Self-explanation: Articulation is a difficult task, so weaknesses in your knowledge get exposed quickly.
