GCSEPod and Interleaving

Interleaving refers to the practice of spending some time learning one topic, and then pausing to concentrate on a second topic (before having mastered the first).

Mixing up your revision in this way is very effective compared to blocked learning, where you master one topic before moving on to the next.

Added benefits of this technique include increased variety, keeping your interest for longer,  and helping you to remember what you’ve learned, improving your long-term memory.

Mixing your study can improve your ability to retain information.

Remember, it’s important to maintain a good balance between topics. You shouldn’t switch topics too frequently, perhaps study a topic for 30 minutes before moving on and take regular breaks.

Check out the many ways you can use GCSEPod for interleaved practice in the video below:
