Distributed Memory Method-woodmam

(6) Scattered (head and tail) memorization method

  Plan to use 1 hour to memorize an article. There are two ways to arrange for this 1 hour.

  One is the concentration method, that is, within 1 hour, constantly and repeatedly recite until remembered.

  The second is to use the scattering method, which is to divide the memorization time in several times, such as 20 minutes a day, in three days, the total memorization time is still 1 hour.

  Checking the effect of memorization, it was found that the effect of the decentralized method was significantly better than the centralized method. Why is this?

  A learning process that is relatively divided into three stages: before, during, and after, the learning activity in front affects the learning activity in the back, i.e., pre-recall inhibition. For example, if you do your homework immediately after playing soccer, you often have difficulty concentrating because although the previous activity is apparently over, this neural activity does not stop and continues for some time, making the later learning activity disturbed. The stronger the excitement caused by the previous activity, the greater the interference with the later learning activity. Similarly, the later learning activity also affects the previous activity, i.e., post-regulatory inhibition.

  Practice has shown that it is always the beginning and end phases that are effective for learning. Many people get up early in the morning and learn best, not only because they are clear-headed and energetic in the morning, but also because the morning is the beginning of the day and the learning activities are basically free from the disturbances in front of them. Some students also have good results in memorizing foreign words and memorizing texts before going to bed, which is because they rest or sleep afterwards and are no longer disturbed by other activities.

  The decentralized learning method actually increases the first and last stages of the learning process where there are fewer interruptions, each study is shorter, and brain cells are less likely to be fatigued.

  In the use of decentralized learning method of learning, to master the interval time. The interval is too long and easy to forget, and the interval is too short and easy to be disturbed. According to the characteristics of forgetting first fast and then slow, the beginning of each interval time can be short, later can gradually increase, if the material is too difficult, there can be more intervals, learning materials if easier, the content is relatively small, the number of intervals can be reduced.

  In contrast, the centralized learning method due to the first and last less, more interference, continuous concentration of learning similar materials, easy to make the brain cells feel fatigue, neural connection errors, memory effects will be relatively discounted.

  (7) less love more abandonment - screening memory method

  Throughout history, people who are good at learning are accustomed to grasp the main, key parts for in-depth study, and other scattered non-key parts are naturally solved. The previous generations have left us with many wonderful statements.

  ...... read all the pieces and memorize every word, would it not be a blunt man with no points! The first thing you need to do is to get a good idea of what you are getting into.

  --Zheng Banqiao

  Memory must also be organized, that is, before remembering, one should consider what information must be remembered, what information should be stored in what place, what information must be discarded, what information must be forgotten, and what information must be recalled.

  --Liuzel (East Germany)

  In all the books you read, find out what can lead you deeper, and throw away everything else, that is, everything that overloads the mind and lures you away from the main points.


  In learning, we should put into our minds the insights that we have distilled through creative thinking, consciously forgetting the secondary information and freeing our minds to remember the information that is really useful. It would be a foolish attempt to keep everything one has learned in one's head - to spend one's memory on things that one does not need to remember is tantamount to chronic suicide. One of the basic rules of memory is: choose the best according to need and remember - "love less and discard more".

  Remembering according to need is both remembering less and more information and forgetting more information. In order to do this perfectly, it is necessary to increase the intensity of thinking about the information received and pre-screening and refining before remembering.

  As "many poor iron ore only through the crushing and screening, selection into iron ore concentrate powder to have value, iron ore concentrate powder only after smelting and pig iron to improve the value of use, pig iron after smelting and remove the hot brittle sulfur, cold brittle phosphorus and other impurities to become the use of value multiplier steel", only from the many messy Only from the many messy information filtered and refined out of the little but fine information to have memory value, but also only for the little but fine information to refine to obtain the value of a large increase or multiply the fine in the fine information - such as thousands of recited quotes, aphorisms, mature production methods (methods) to create inventions and patented technology and so on.

  A person who can remember, before memory, will be in line with the principle of "less love and more abandonment" of all the information received (literacy) according to the need to choose, one by one, will be less but fine, simple and full, really useful information into the most suitable for it to stay in the "room" inside (8) Categorization (systematic) memory

  (8) Classification (systematic) memory method

  Classification or categorization is the process of regrouping disordered things into different levels of categories based on certain internal connections or certain external characteristics of things. Through classification or categorization, the scattered information tends to be concentrated, fragmented information forms a system, and disorganized information constitutes an organization, thus making the information to be remembered more systematized, regulated and generalized, which facilitates memory.

  "The classification and grouping of materials is an important step in human literacy activities. Human experience is categorized and maintained. Evoking past experience (recollection) is also done with the help of the category of categories of experience ...... The ability of a person to categorize and group experience in memory is due to the experience of social practice in which there is a categorization of stored material into piles. It is inconceivable that man could categorize and group materials in recognition without the categorization and division of piles in social practice." Professor of psychology Rizhao Cao confirmed through experimental results that pre-categorization of the required information and later memorization is significantly better than memorization without pre-categorization.
