With the rich toolset offered by incremental learning, all reading, learning, viewing, archiving, and annotation functions can be delegated to SuperMemo.
This goes far beyond standard learning and includes personal notes, home videos, lectures available in audio and video formats, YouTube material, family photo-albums, diaries, audio files, scanned paper materials, etc.
The oldest, most popular, and the most mature component of incremental learning is incremental reading. We will use incremental reading as the comprehensive introduction to other forms of incremental learning. The value of interruption in learning In incremental learning, we often quickly move from one subject to another.
Such interruptions may occur many times during a single learning day. When people first learn about this incremental methodology they immediately ask "Why interrupt?
Aren't these the prime principles of human endeavour to be thorough, persist, and do things right to the end? Previewing is a form of interruption. Regular interruption allows of prioritizing on the go improving attention: It is true that incremental learning may lead to "learning impatience" and "craving interruption", however, these have never been proven detrimental beyond showing that once you employ incremental learning, you may never want to go back to traditional "book at a time" learning.
Nevertheless, you should not forget that schools are incremental too.
Just on a slightly moderate scale. Schools employ interruption when kids move from geography to physics, or when they close the books for the day.
Once the art of incremental learning is mastered, the advantages go far beyond the advantages of the interruption or spaced repetition.
Here is a shortlist for a detailed discussion see: Advantages of incremental learning. Contrary to popular belief, incremental learning helps you keep the big picture in your mind better attention by focusing on a single issue at a time without ever missing a detail, and by remedying attention deficits with a constant change of the learning material creativity - by encountering different subjects in unpredictable sequences, your creativity soars.
You can employ it, for example, in the process of incremental problem solving or incremental writing this article was written using incremental writing tools in SuperMemo battling chaos - it is easier to resolve contradictions in SuperMemo, e. Unlike your memory in "real life" where you keep oscillating between contradictions, SuperMemo does not tolerate information discrepancy.
Contradictory material converges up to a point when you realize you need to decide on the nature of the truth all knowledge is well prioritized all knowledge is easily searchable all knowledge is quantifiable size, retention, workload, etc.
If that sounds too good to be true, please read more below or just give it a solid try. For a detailed explanation see: Interruption is not a problem In learning, choosing the right learning sources is the first step to success. A well-written article will get you to the basic idea from its first paragraph or even a sentence.
Incremental reading is best suited for articles written in hypertext or in an encyclopedic manner. Ideally, each sentence you read has a contribution to your knowledge and is not useless without the sentences that follow.
Imagine that you would like to learn a few things about Gamal Abdel Nasser. You will, for example, import to SuperMemo an article about Nasser from Wikipedia. In the first sentence you will find out that "Gamal Abdel Nasser - was the second President of Egypt".
If you are new to Nasser, you may be happy to just know he was the Egyptian president and safely jump to reading other articles. Thus you may delay the encounter with the historic role of Nasser and economize some time to finding out, for example, who Shimon Peres is.
When you see the Nasser article for the second time, you might find that "He was followed by after President Muhammad Naguib and can be considered one of the most important Arab leaders in history". This piece of knowledge is also self-contained and you can patiently wait for your third encounter with Nasser.
When you return the next time, you may conclude that another piece about Nasser is of lower priority: You can schedule the review of that piece in years.
Perhaps your interest in Nasser or in Alexandria will grow to the point that this knowledge will become relevant. If not, you can always dismiss or delete such an extract. Alternatively, you can skip a few paragraphs and extract a more important sentence: Even if your read individual sentences about Nasser in intervals lasting months, your knowledge will progressively expand and will become increasingly consolidated esp.
Naturally, not all texts are are so well-suited for incremental reading.Doctoral dissertations and Master’s theses published on microfilm and digitally through the University Microfilms International (hereinafter referred to as UMI) Dissertation Information Service and made available to researchers throughout the world.
