spinning v. mashing

I'm new to cycling and I find that if I try to spin in an easier gear, my speed drops precipitously. Some people say that spinning at a higher rpm is more efficient with respect to energy conservation. I don't understand how that is supposed to work. I've heard LA is known for his spinning so there must be some truth to it. Could anyone clarify this concept for me and suggest how I might incorporated it into my cycling?
