Iterations of Learning

, Opinions :: Learning

Learning is based on iterations. Do something, then repeat, then repeat until you’re familiar with it, is essentially the process; people call this “practice”.

Different subjects have different sorts of steps to repeat, for instance:

  • Language learning
  • Find a unit of text (eg. a sentence).
  • Figure out what it means.
  • Repeat.

  • Piano
  • Find an unfamiliar sheet.
  • Divide it into smaller chunks.
  • Play each chunk until some level of familiarity.
  • Combine them together.
  • Repeat.

Learning is essentially finding the steps of an iteration, and then doing it again and again.
