Does anyone use the Feynman Technique? It keeps coming up in discussions, and I use similar techniques all the time, so I wanted to start a thread about it.
Basically, when learning new material, try to explain it to an imaginary student. Paraphrase the material without looking at the book. Being able to explain something is a sign that you understand it. It also uses active recall, which seems to help create memories.
Has anyone here tried it, and what do you think about it?
Here is a short video for people who haven’t encountered the technique before:
