At some point in our lives we all need to memorize texts, lists or series in the correct order; at school we start with the times tables, poems, cheat sheets, dates and places, math formulae, chemical series - later on we have to memorize business presentations, a wedding speech, law statutes, medical terminology, scriptures, jokes, song lyrics, lines for a play, names and faces… the list is endless!
By starting with small chunks, then gradually looping longer and longer sections, you will be amazed how fast you can learn even very long texts or lists that you previously thought impossible to memorize. By doing so, not only are you learning by heart, but you are also improving your memory (see "medical benefits" below).
Designed in collaboration with a leading UK education expert, "Learn Anything" makes learning easy, fun, and effective by using the all-time best memory techniques handed down to us through the generations, adapted to modern mobile technology.
Thanks to "Learn Anything" on iPhone/iPad, you can now learn anything, anywhere, at any time!
To start creating your own learning loops, just record whatever you want to learn into the iPhone or iPad microphone (not too close…), then add optional text/images to create your own personal multimedia learning experience.
The central memorization technique used by Learn Anything is often known as "Spiral Learning", and has been used for thousands of years to pass on knowledge in oral traditions such as story-telling and music.
Here is the big secret to learning long texts or lists by heart: cut into smaller pieces, learn the smaller pieces, then learn short-then-longer groups of the small pieces until you know the entire text by heart. Simple!
Traditional methods of oral repetition, revision and recall, in conjunction with "association" - linking images in a highly imaginative and personal way - will help you learn faster, more, and more successfully, than ever before.
A central feature of Learn Anything is the ability to share and download learning loops in the online "Loop Library". The loops that you create and share will help others across the globe to achieve their learning goals.
A wide range of features to make learning long and difficult study material fun, easy and effective.
Runs in English, French, Spanish, Chinese or Japanese according to your language settings.
Requires iPhone/iPad for audio recording; iPod Touch users need an external microphone to create learning loops.
Scientific studies have confirmed the benefits of memorization software such as "Learn Anything" for Alzheimer sufferers and carers. For those of us fortunate enough to enjoy good memory, software such as "Learn Anything" can help keep our memory in pristine condition for as long as possible.
