As college progresses from the first month to the second, all of us realise the fact that we have a lot of classes, a lot of projects, and a lot to learn. But, often learning becomes difficult, because we have to do other things.
So, what if there were a technique that would help you learn faster. A proven scientific technique that is well respected all over ?
There is, and it is called the Feynman Technique
The Feynman Technique is a Mental Model named after Richard Feynman, a Nobel Prize Winning Physicist. It is designed as a technique to help you learn pretty much learn anything — so understand concepts you don’t really get, remember stuff you have already learnt, or study more efficiently.
The Feynman Technique has 4 broad steps
- Pick a topic you want to learn
- After reading it, pretend you are explaining it to a classroom of younger children
- When you get stuck, go back to the book
- Simplify the language and use analogies, that are relatable.
Feynman used this technique, all his life — even when explaining the most complex laws of the universe.
