There are Two Strategies for Learning Something

There are Two Strategies for Learning Something

  • Depth-first. This is where we pick one area and drill down.
  • Breadth-first works by first exploring your surroundings. If that doesn't work, pick one direction and fan out again.

If the area you're exploring is bounded or set out, like a syllabus, both strategies will work. If learning is without bounds, going in-depth first may lead you on a long detour. Choose poorly, and you can get stuck on an unwanted path.

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

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!
