1. How to use the Feynman method of Learning
2. What is the Feynman Technique?
The Feynman Technique helps you to comprehend, recall as well as explain everything within a short span of time. This technique is considered an active method of learning.
3. The Learning Steps
4. Choose a topic
ANY topic! The Feynman technique doesn’t have any limitations. It’s not like it’ll work only for science subjects and nothing else. No! It is equally efficient. So make your choice freely.
5. Explain it to yourself as if you’re explaining it to a 5-year kid
This is the real deal. This is the place where you are compelled to simplify entire concepts such that even a child can understand it.
By forcing yourself to do that, you are actually simplifying the entire thing for your very own benefits.
6. Is there any knowledge gap?
Find out whether there’s any knowledge gap in your possible explanations. If there’s any, pinpoint them. Go back to the matter and clear them up.
Feynman nursed this belief that if something can’t be explained in layman’s terms, there’s a problem with his comprehension, not with the information.
7. Use your analogy
If your concept is abstract and is something that’s not so easily relatable to the physical world, it’s advisable to create some sort of an analogy to make it more relatable?
Why should you do it? Do you think that a 5-year-old child can understand abstract concepts with bare ease? The entire motto of the Feynman technique is to render the subject in such a manner that even a child can understand it.
8. Simplify the concept if it still appears to be difficult
If the concept appears too difficult to your liking, it might do you more good to lose some details. Still difficult? Lose some more but simplify it nonetheless. It will definitely benefit you in the long run; there’s no doubt about it.
The Feynman Technique helps you to comprehend, recall as well as explain everything within a short span of time. This technique is considered an active method of learning. This presentation throws more light on the matter.
