pyramidal learning

Studies show that varying your study methods and materials leads to improvements in the retention and recall of information.

The “learning pyramid”, sometimes referred to as the “cone of learning”, suggests that most students only remember about 10% of what they read from textbooks, but retain nearly 90% of what they learn through teaching others.

The Learning Pyramid model suggests that some methods of study are more effective than others and that varying study methods will lead to deeper learning and longer-term retention.
