The illusion of transfer

The illusion of transfer

Transfer is the ability to apply and use what you learn.

Research showed several times the fact that much of what we set out to learn doesn’t actually transfer to the situations we need it. This applies to school, but also to your own learning efforts.

Applying the knowledge

Make sure your learning project involves something you do or not just something you learn.

  • Don’t just learn a new language, aim to have conversations with people.
  • Don’t just read a book on JavaScript, build a functioning website.
  • Don’t just watch lectures, do practice problems from the exam.

Designing your learning project

  • Don't focus on an ambitious goal. Yes, it could inspire you, but it could also frustrate you.
  • Pick your quitting time in advance. Committing to an indefinite timetable means you’ll give up as soon as things get tough.
  • Regardless of how much reading is required, give priority to the practice you intend to do.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

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!

Shankul Varada

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.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

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

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!

Giovanna Scalzone

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.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
