When trying to learn something new, it’s really important to think about what you’re thinking. The fancy name for this is metacognition. The way to do it is to ask yourself questions like:

What new concepts/skills did I learn?

How does this relate to things I already know?What old ideas have been challenged?

Was anything surprising?

Was anything particularly difficult to understand?

This is just a starting point. I’m really looking forward to reading and engaging with your thoughts!
