But learning must itself consist of sets of skills we grow ourselves; we start with only some of them and slowly grow the rest.
Why don't more people keep on learning more and better learning skills?
At the same time, he or she will not find time to study important issues of the day that will always depend on a given person in a given context.
With blinkers imposed by the heavy load of school material, the student may never find time, for example, to figure out what incremental learning is.
That knowledge is relatively stable and lasts in student's memory as long as the process continues, and well beyond.
Incremental learning is the opposite of the irrational school system learning in which a heavy focus is put on just a few areas of knowledge in a semester (at the cost of other, equally important, areas of learning).
For example, in learning a language, the vocabulary of an educated native speaker can be retained in Super Memo at the cost of 20 minutes per day in the first years of the process, and mere minutes in later years (assuming the original set is acquired in portions spread over 4 years in 30-50 min. The incremental learning derives its name from the incremental nature of the learning process.
In incremental learning, all facets of knowledge receive a regular treatment, and there is a regular inflow of new knowledge that builds upon the past knowledge.
In incremental learning, we often quickly move from one subject to another.
Such interruptions may occur many times during a single learning day. It is true that incremental learning may lead to "learning impatience" and "craving interruption", however, these have never been proven detrimental beyond showing that once you employ incremental learning, you may never want to go back to traditional "book at a time" learning.
