Learning (1) can be summarized in a three-step process:
Encoding of information (short term memory)
Consolidation (2) of information into a connected image (long term memory)
Retrieval (3) of information to use when needed
The ability to track down information from our long term memory is directly dependent on establishing powerful repeated retrieval cues.(4) Interconnected ideas in our brain establish a series of motor skills that translate into a meaningful observable task.
(1) Learning is limitless. The more we know, the more possible connections we have for adding new knowledge. (2) Consolidation makes connection to past experiences and knowledge. (3) The ability to track down what we know when we need it is the cue learning.
(4) Effortful repeated practices construct a fix of interconnected ideas in our brain.
