Strategies for Student Success: Engaging Students Long Term Memory
It must be uncomfortable for students to sit in a classroom and not understand anything. After teaching a good lesson, educators wonder why, a majority of the class did not get it.
Also, imagine being given directions for baking a cake, and in less than five minutes, being unable to recall those directions. Research explains that the information was not lodged in the long-term memory, and only temporarily in the working memory, and hence the speedy loss of information.
In this session, we will focus on the development of cognitive structures, activities and conditions that secure information in the long-term memory.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
• create favorable learning conditions
• identify brain-compatible activities
• maintain a healthy brain
This session will be face-to-face held at the Schultz Center.
