What is Spaced Repetition & How Does it Work?

In the second video of the Spaced Repetition course we dive deeper into spaced repetition: what is it, where did it come from, and how does it work?

Full post is for Supporters only


In this video we’re going to dig a little deeper into the concepts and learn where spaced repetition came from and how it works. 

In a nutshell, spaced repetition is based on the idea that the best time to remember something is right before you’re about to forget it. 

This also means that you shouldn’t waste your time trying to memorize things that you already know, and that it doesn’t really make sense to memorize the same piece of information every day at the same time. 

At this point I think that it’s important to note that what we’re concerned with here is retention, not learning. As I’ll explain later, you shouldn’t really be trying to memorize things that you don’t understand. 

So let’s begin by taking a look at where spaced repetition came from. 

This course is only available for Panoply supporters.
