The Science of Learning

| No Comments

Many of the new concepts that we have learned in Psychology seem to show up every where in today's world. One of the most useful, though, is the concept of how we learn. The idea of chunking and how the brain picks up on new ideas is fascinating. Before I read the chapter I had no idea the complex system of how this works. The basic thought of "chunking" is that our brain groups similar items together versus learning them separately. This drastically increases our chances of remembering and fully understanding the concept. I liked this part of psychology the most because it can help me with how I study and learn new things in school. With this new idea in mind, I can more grasp future concepts better as well as understand them more efficiently.
