Brain Hacking 403: Recall - Making Learning Last
Crush School: Every Student’s Guide To Killing It In The Classroom (And Teachers Dig It Too) by Oskar Cymerman
The book is a Guide to Learning Anything. It serves as a tool teachers can use to teach students how to learn. Consider buying this book if you are a Student or a Teacher facilitating an Effective Learning Strategies or a Study Skills class. "Crush School" contains brain based research proven strategies, explains why these strategies work, any why other methods do not. And the book is actually fun to read!
The strategy I am presenting you with today is a game changer. It has the potential to make experts out of learners and it makes learning last.
You might already know the learning strategy I am talking about, because it's been around the block. I have not invented it. I knew it before, but it was not until I took a Coursera MOOC "Learning How To Learn" By Barbara Oakley and Terrence Sejnowski that I understood its true power.
So... Ask yourself: Do my students know it? And, do they know how to use it? And, do they use RECALL consistently when studying?
I believe most students mainly re-read information when they study. However, even if your answer to the 3 questions above was a "yes," you will find a few nice Recall Hacks in the Infographic below that can help you be a more effective instructor and your students learn more effectively. And, isn't that what this whole education shindig is all about?
