Based upon the latest advances in neuroscience, cognitive psychology and education science, iDoRecall helps you capture key information, develop robust mental models and perfect your natural ability to recall everything you learn. IDoRecAll helps you evelop the knowledge foundation required to become a more creative person.
Master time management
iDorecall helps keep you on track and is procrastination’s worst enemy. All of your studying is organized with deadlines set by you and the iDorecall algorithm.
IDoRecall utilizes these and many other scientifically proven strategies for effective learning and long-term recall
Despite popular belief, reviewing, rereading and highlighting do not create durable long-term memory.
Only practicing retrieval from memory, especially when practice is spaced over time, creates the pathways needed to easily recall what you have learned.
Switching practice between different subjects and topic areas fortifies your recall skills. Interleaving strengthens memory associations by training your brain to reinforce neural connections between different tasks and correct responses.
Variation in your practice approach increases the mental flexibility required to solve new problems which arise in life that often don’t follow the rigid rules of textbook learning. If you want to become proficient at 3 foot putts, practice more 2 and 4 foot putts.
Recall information and events and then analyze the what, how and why. Ask yourself these questions and consider future alternative solutions in order to create supercharged mental models. IDoRecall’s in-app coach will guide you to reflect.
Come up with answers to questions you’ve never even faced before.
Even a failed attempt helps create the infrastructure for new learning. Finding new solutions to a problem prompts your brain to activate all relevant memories and makes it more receptive to the new materials.
Elaboration is the expression of concepts, facts and ideas in your own words and then tying additional layers of information that you already know to the subject at hand. This results in far richer mental models that prepare your brain for internalizing new content.
the core learning strategies
“Experts in any domain generally have great swaths of memorized information directly at their fingertips. The memorization process can, perhaps surprisingly, lead to deeper understanding. It might seem counterintuitive, but it’s true!”
Professor Barbara Oakley
Co-founder of the “Learning How to Learn” MOOC at Coursera.com
“Purposeful practice is all about putting a bunch of baby steps together to reach a long-term goal… Purposeful practice is focused… Purposeful practice involves feedback.”
Professor Anders Ericsson and Robert Pool
“People generally are going about learning in the wrong ways. Empirical research into how we learn and remember shows that much of what we take for gospel about how we learn turns out to be largely wasted effort… The most effective learning strategies are not intuitive.”
Professors Henry Roediger and Mark McDaniel
“If, like those with the growth mindset, you believe you can develop yourself, then you’re open to accurate information about your current abilities, even it’s unflattering. What’s more, if you’re oriented toward learning, as they are, you need accurate information about your current abilities in order to learn effectively”
