You change your mindset when teaching. When teachers prepare to teach, they tend to seek out key points and organise information into a coherent structure.
The results of psychology experiments suggest that students also turn to these types of effective learning strategies when they expect to teach.
Organising information and placing it within a coherent structure are vital components of effective learning.
Psyhologist call this ‘Relational processing’. So the next time you are having problem with any concepts, gather a few friends or classmates and start lecturing on the topic. Your mind will be forced to look at the subject from a different angle.
