How do we create learning that lasts? It's a hard question to answer, and in some cases an even harder reality to achieve, particularly with the pressure
After describing the three phases of the learning process based on cognitive science. The first two phases:
* Students decide what to attend to.
* Students organize the information
These work with short term memory but to know the information students must also activate long term memory which may begin in class with a review but should also includes well crafted assignments.
What can you do?The post continues by exploring ways to capture a students attention and ways to help them create a framework. The final section explores how to make the lesson stick. Three examples are below (quoted from the post).
* Begin lectures with a high level question that the upcoming information can answer.
* Highlight the "unfinished" nature of each subject.
* Don't use too many types of different presentation materials at once.

I love this image. It captures it all. Beth Dichter posts great stuff on a regular basis. I am really spending some serious time inviestigating this topic of buy-in by the students by givening them more ownership .
I like the analogy of a 'sticky lesson'... something that sticks in your head. That's the aim of every lesson... get what you are teaching to stick in the learners head!
