The idea of meta learning was used by John Biggs (1985) to describe the state of “being aware of and taking control of one’s own learning“. If you’re intentional about how you practice and what you practice, you can go from knowing absolutely nothing about it to being skilled in only a few hours. For those of you who geek out on learning new skills or are curious about all the hobbies the world has to offer, these fundamentals and this structured roadmap will change.your.life.
