No.  But they are related.


There are multiple links in the chain that leads to sustained learning.  One of those links is "recall".  It is also the link that is missing in most learning program designs.


What is Recall?   Let's say you need to learn a list of names, but then cannot recall name #4 on the list when you need it;  so have you really learned the list?  You need to be able to recall the information.  Recall is established by building neural pathways in the brain.  If you look at the list once, you BEGIN to form a neural pathway that enables you to recall. But as the minutes and hours pass, that pathway dissolves unless you see the list again.  Each repetition reinforces recall.  


The challenge is... how do you know how much repetition is needed?  And when do you have time for a bunch of repetition?  Ringorang has this down to a science, so that you don't have to think about it.  Just plug in the app, and play.


What is Learning?  Learning ultimately means a habit has been formed.  Let's say you memorize that list of names:  it's a list of attendees who are coming to your event.  You've repeated the list enough times that you can now recall each name at will.  But when the people arrive to your event, how do you place the names with the faces?  A list of names is only two-dimensional.  Once you know the attendees and can place the names with the faces, that list becomes three-dimensional.  Your memory is aided by their looks, their voices, the feel of their handshakes.  If your relationship with those people continues, you no longer need the list at all.  For whenever one of those names is mentioned, your brain has a habit of assembling the face, the voice, the handshake, to form your memory.

 

But what if you don't see those people again for many months?  Will you recall the names?  Perhaps not.  Because the repetition has stopped.  And the recall link has been dropped as the neural pathways gradually dissolve.  You lost the habit of thinking about them.  


THE KEY!  To sustain learning of anything, we must think of it on a repeated basis.  If there are no experiences in our daily lives that bring that repetition naturally, then we need to adopt a reinforcement mechanism in our routine that reminds us of the thing we want to recall.  Ringorang overcomes what is called the Forgetting Curve by repeatedly reminding its users of key information that they want to know.  And just that simple, quick, incentivized reminder provided by a Ringorang Q, reinforces the neural pathway sufficiently to sustain one's learning.  And Ringorang makes that repetition fun.


Ringorang's patented method for delivering recall is the missing link in the chain that sustains learning over time.
