Leitner Box - Our brains get bombarded with information provided by our senses. We are presented with too much to store and encode. The brain has developed sophisticated algorithms for throwing away information. The brain has developed algorithms for encoding information into Long Term MEMORY if it is important. We can use these methods of moving information from Sensory MEMORY into Working MEMORY and encoding it into Long Term MEMORY for easy recall later. Leitner’s Cardbox application is designed to lift things into the Long Term MEMORY through controlled repetition and spacing. The box system (also called "Leitner system") was originally conceived by German psychologist Sebastian Leitner in the 1960s. Its purpose is to provide a structure for people to learn and retain vocabularies in short-term and long-term memory. The box system is comprised of a set of boxes (5 in the case of Leitner’s Cardbox application), each containing a certain number of flashcards. This amount rises proportionally with the box''s number. Also, the higher the box number, the nearer are the respective cards in the long-term memory. Leitner’s Cardbox application is based upon the algorithm as developed and tested by Sebastian Leitner a German psychologist.
