How to Use the Feynman Technique – Study Tips – How to Study


Hello Socratica Friends! We’re here to help you be a Great Student. One of the greatest students of all time was also one of the greatest teachers of all time – Richard Feynman. He was a Nobel-winning physicist, who was legendary for being able to reach even complete novices with his clear, jargon-free explanations. Feynman knew a lot about how to help students learn, because he himself was insatiably curious, and never stopped learning.

The Feynman Technique is named after this extraordinary thinker. It’s a way to test yourself as you study – do you REALLY understand something? Or are you just repeating what you read in a textbook or heard in class? This is one of the most important study tips to learn about being a great student, whether you are in high school, college, grad school, or you are learning on your own.

After you watch the video, try our Feynman Technique Challenge – pick something complicated you are studying, and try to explain it to us in the comments. USE THE FEYNMAN TECHNIQUE! Are you a great explainer?
