What is the technical term for this type of recall?
A student (possibly with ADD) plays a puzzle game while listening to a class (there's no relationship between the puzzle game and the content of the class). Later, while relaxing at home, he plays the game again and by doing that recalls the content of the class.

Is there a term for this? What can it be a symptom of? Is it common?
