The Forgetting Curve

I came across this excellent infographic from eLearning Industry (which has tons of great, free resources by the way) that I wanted to share.

What I like about this is that it summarizes Ebbinghaus’s 1885 research perfectly in a really engaging way. And this research is still the reason today that we make use of spaced repetition in designing learning.

The takeaway here is that for any learning experience to be effective, it should have intentional repetition designed into it so that learners are constantly reviewing important material to reinforce the principles learned.
