'''Self-explanation''' is a [[learning technique]] where the [[learner]] explains the steps they take in solving a problem or their processing of new information to themselves.
 
==History==
 
Dunlosky et al. (2013) [http://www.indiana.edu/~pcl/rgoldsto/courses/dunloskyimprovinglearning.pdf] calls a 1983 study by Berry "the seminal study on self-explanation".
==Software engineering==
Closely related to self-explanation is a technique called ''rubber duck debugging'' (or ''rubber ducking''), where a programmer explains a software problem to themselves (or someone who knows nothing about programming) to help them debug code.
