Memory Friendly Teaching, Helping Students use Their Memories Well
We are moving towards research-based teaching, where the approaches being used are the ones that are shown to work best. Teaching that supports memory retention and recall has received less attention than other areas, but it offers significant benefits. In this session, Charlie will show you how teachers can design their lessons that respect memory principles and give students the best chance of recalling and retaining what is being taught.
