Martin suggested that I use this technique to help me with my 20% project. However, as I researched this project I realized that I wish I had known this technique in college, it would have made some classes much easier. And then I realized the best study tools I used in college involved using similar strategies to remember and retain information. I would get together with other classmates and we would talk about class content. I felt most prepared for a test after I felt like I could clearly articulate a topic to a classmate. Being able to tell someone else in words about a topic, for me either verbally or written down, helps me learn more about that topic. I feel more familiar with it than if I had just thought about it conceptually. This is not only a technique that I can use for myself and my own learning but also in my classroom as a teacher. I could incorporate activities that involve students teaching other students about the content in order to help students understand it better. Creating something like an infograph would also be a way for students to verbalize and organize information in a such a way that will help them remember it better. Thanks Martin!
