Learning Tools

I recently downloaded Tinycards in my attempt to break my English monotongue world. It is old school flashcards made easier. You can put photos or text on either side of decks of cards you create. It then gamifies it, to make learning easier. I first heard of Spaced Repetition Systems through Fluent Forever, and Anki SRS. The basic idea is that instead of hammering away at things you know, you focus on the things you don't. Just as you are forgetting something it gets tested again. The gaps getting bigger, and bigger, as the knowledge is soaked more deeply. Almost forgetting, and the little bit of struggle to 'find that info' is a great way to create the meaningful connections that make things stick.
