Location in space is the key to memorization. However, sometimes the info you want to remember is so abstract (e.g. foreign words, numbers, new concepts, etc.), that you can hardly imagine or visualize anything associated with it. SpatialNote offers you an easy way to add more notes to the info you have, allowing you to create hints that can remind you about the abstract things you need to learn. Some examples of such hints are concrete words, names of famous or familiar to you people that sound similar to the abstract ones you need to remember. You can also add some mini-stories to make even more mnemonic hints.
Images make your info more specific, aiding future recall. It can also be helpful if you want others to remember your information better. With SpatialNote you have multiple ways to enrich your info with images, either by uploading or dragging them from your computer, adding them via URLs or taking photos from you mobile phones and devices.
When you position your notes in 3D locations aiding them with memory hints and images where need, your memorization even from the first attempt becomes better than with dozens of rote repetitions. Nevertheless, even these powerful memories will start fading away without repetitions. The good news is you will need less of them if you had stronger initial memorization. And SpatialNote offers you multiple ways to repeat your info.
When you navigate your knowledge structure, your implicitly remind yourself about the location of info, aiding your future recall. And if you make the process explicit, by adding active recall into your navigation, you can memorize and repeat your info much quicker without huge efforts. Have a small pause to recollect what you should see in the next room of your Memory Palace before you enter it. And check yourself once you move into it. This can save you time by minimizing future repetition rounds, improving your long-term info retention and speed of recall.
Spaced repetition is an approach that suggests to gradually increase intervals between your repetitions, freeing more of your time. When you do your repetition in SpatialNote, make the process more interesting by switching the views (working with your knowledge structure from inside or outside), navigating different paths, moving from the global perspective to details or from details to the center. If speed of recall is your priority, have repetition rounds more often, trying to get maximum speed of recall.
All pieces of info in SpatialNote have their own locations in space and are connected. This keeps all the knowledge united, allowing you to repeat your Memory Palaces in your mind by navigating them as if you are using the solution. You know which parts of your info structure you already “visited” where you still need to “go” to repeat your info. This is a huge difference compared to flashcards.
The 3D views and Russian-doll like (fractal) structure of information allow to create non-linear documents that are great for storing big amount of data and have good visibility of the info. At the same time, the basic building block for the info is a cube, preventing the short-term memory overload. These qualities of ease of understanding info and ability to organize huge amounts of data make SpatialNote a powerful learning tool even if you do not need the strong memorization aid. In a way it can resemble a mind-mapping solution, though a fully 3D one with several views. Same quality of the ease of understanding the info and ability to organize big amounts of data along with ability to change the direction of navigating the info on the fly make SpatialNote a powerful presentation solution, especially for those who want to have interactive non-linear presentations. And when you add powerful memorization and repetition capabilities, you get a solution for really powerful presentations.
SpatialNote is web-based in HTML5. It is easily accessible from any of your computers, tablets or mobile devices, so you can use your “spare brain” anytime.
SpatialNote offers unique possibilities to organize info in 3D space. Thus, it becomes a powerful tool to train spatial capabilities. They are key to many activities and professions. What is even
