‘Get Smarter’ is the ultimate collection of smart, digital flashcards that cover the baseline essentials of everything you should know about the world around you, from history’s greatest artists to the names of the common birds in your backyard; from the spices you should add to your foods to the capital cities of the world’s countries. And so much more.
There is scarcely a subject we haven’t touched upon nor an expert we haven’t left unconsulted in our grand goal of bringing to everyone, everywhere, the world’s most comprehensive collection of general knowledge flashcards.
Now, you can efficiently learn (and remember) everything you wish you’d learned in school and in life with our ‘Get Smarter’ collection of flashcard classes, FREE with every Brainscape account:
Knowledge Rehab—everything you wish you’d learned in school
Street Smarts—everything you wish you’d learned in life
Vocab Builder—new words to advance your language
Cultural literacy for the 21st Century!
General knowledge isn’t only for trivia lovers or bar quiz heroes. Learning even just surface-level facts about a myriad of topics and subjects unlocks vast worlds of intrigue, curiosity, and connection between us. Suddenly, that wine menu becomes demystified because you know the difference between Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc; or you’re understanding better why the Mona Lisa draws millions of visitors to the Louvre in Paris every year.
Repeat across any subject you can think of—classic authors, science, health & nutrition, history, travel, basic first aid, food & drink, engineering, etc.—and you’ve got a comprehensive education that’ll make you smarter, more worldly, and more interesting to talk to!
This is what Brainscape’s ‘Get Smarter’ collection promises.
Through a multi-year project involving hundreds of students, teachers, professors, and experts (and even a few hipsters), Brainscape has compiled a critical base set of knowledge across a huge range of subjects and topics of interest. We’ve then organized it into three classes—Knowledge Rehab, Street Smarts, and Vocab Builder—all of which are FREE and automatically loaded with every Brainscape account.
How Brainscape helps you learn faster and remember for longer
The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.
Our "secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of general knowledge content at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.
