Understanding instead of learning

Many people try to get the material into their heads quickly the night before the exam. But just two weeks later, everything is forgotten again. But how can knowledge be retained in the long term? Even more so in a world where knowledge gives you a head start? Understanding is the magic formula and the true strength of human thinking.

Whether at school, in companies or in everyday life: To cope with today’s information overload, we need to be lifelong learners. But learning is only half the battle. Because what you have learned can also be unlearned. Only when we have understood contexts can we store knowledge permanently. True understanding turns our thinking upside down.
