Improving Working Memory: How Can You Enhance All Aspects of Learning?

Improving Working Memory: How Can You Enhance All Aspects of Learning? | Education and Training | Scoop.it

"Do you really know something if you can’t remember it? I had a conversation with a fellow educator on this subject one semester, and we both came to the conclusion that knowledge relies almost exclusively on a student’s ability to remember what she has learned. Proof of knowledge comes from demonstration of knowledge; if you can’t recall a fact, then for all intents and purposes you never learned it. But where does that leave intelligence?"

This post notes that working memory plays a critical role in academic success. There is a detailed section that share the science behind working memory. This section is followed by 10 suggestions on how you could work with your students to increase their working memory. Two of the suggestions are:

* Chunking

* Interacting images

In is likely that we have students in our classes with poor working memory. One of the suggestions is The Automated Working Memory Assessment that they state may be used by a teacher. What would happen if we were able to learn that a struggling students needs to increase their working memory and had tools to assist them to learn how to do this? Would they become more successful? This is a post you may want to share with others in your building.
