Chunk It Down

Chunking is a magnificent way to lighten the cognitive load and assist in information absorption because it literally turns 10 pieces of information into three (for example). The simple ways for chunking to help all three elements of the learning process are to chunk based on groupings, categories, and patterns—all of which you can arbitrarily create. Effective ways to chunk information for better absorption and synthesis (and also retention) are to map new information onto old information and tear it down to the smallest subparts possible, which means that you are breaking something down so you can chunk it together in a way that is significant to you.
