Let Dive In!
Decide On The Skill You Want To Learn
You will get nowhere without having in mind the skill you want to learn. You can’t just jump into Chat GPT and look for information on a gazillion number of things. You will get nowhere. You have to focus on one skill and one skill only.
It will help you become more attentive and absorb the information faster than juggling three or five things at once. it is best to avoid decision fatigue.
Use Chat GPT To Scope All Aspects Of The Skill
To make learning the skill easy to learn, you need to divide it up into subsets. This will help you tackle one part of the topic at a time. Practicing the skill will also become easy since you reduce your cognitive load to the bare minimum and focus on one task at a time.
For example, when learning how to code, you can divide up the topic into aspects like Boolean operators, numbers, strings, loops, exception handling, and many others. Doing so will help you develop key skills which later turn into a complex skill known as coding.
Here is a snapshot showing how ChatGPT can give you a breakdown of all the critical aspects of a topic you want to learn.
Create An Outline Using ChatGPT
After you are done researching all you can on the topic, you must create an organized plan on what you need to study to master the skill at hand. You need to have a well-ordered set of ideas so that you can build on each concept when there is a need to. You can’t start learning exception handling when you have no clue how to work with strings or numbers.
This is one of the key principles that can make or break your focus.
Ask ChatGPT to create a detailed outline of all relevant topics in a well-structured way so that you can go through each concept as smoothly as possible.
Here is a quick prompt with a snapshot for creating a comprehensive outline for your topic of interest. We will use coding as an example.
Prime Chat GPT To Become Your Tutor
You can use Chat GPT as a tutor who you can ask questions and receive feedback based on the responses you feedback to it.
Here is a quick prompt you can use to extract such information from ChatGPT.
- You are a Tutor on the topic of coding at Harvard University. Please act in the voice and tone of a professional teaching coding concepts. Ask questions based on the topics, wait for my response, and then ask another based on my response. At the end of each question give your critique and provide some relevant example answers to the question.
This prompt is just an example. Use it as a model to create your won prompts from scratch. The more questions you ask, the better ChatGPT can give you relevant and clever answers.
